October 2022 Paper Pumpkin Alternative: Ho Ho Ho

August 2022 Paper Pumpkin Alternative: Sweet Sunflowers

Welcome to our monthly “A Paper Pumpkin Thing” blog hop! Check out this month's Paper Pumpkin alternatives that we created and scroll down to join us on a blog hop to see what our creative friends have made with the contents of the October 2022 Ho Ho Ho Paper Pumpkin kit.

Registration for the next Paper Pumpkin is closing on the tenth of November so make sure you sign up so you don't miss out on the creativity that is literally delivered to your front door.

For this kit, we created some fun alternatives using the provided card bases and envelopes. Some accents were made with the provided snowflake dies and additional ribbon and DSP. We did a remake of the little gift bag from two years ago, you can following along with that video below, different DSP but same directions.

We didn't recreate a video for this specific box because we made it a few years ago! We essentially took the envelope and used it as designer series paper. Watch the video below.

What's Paper Pumpkin?

Paper Pumpkin is the perfect way to jump into the world of paper crafting and get your creative “me-time” every month. Each month, we deliver all the stamps, ink, and paper you need to create a fun project, without any stress. Everything is precut and ready to go so you can skip to the fun part of crafting! Our subscribers always have cards and cute gifts on hand for every occasion. Your first kit includes a free gift from us—a clear stamping block. You’ll also build a collection of stamps and ink to use on other projects. There’s no pressure—you can cancel or suspend at any time.

Every kit includes an exclusive stamp set, ink spot, and embellishments to create a predesigned project. At least six times a year, we send an all card kit with eight or more cards. Sometimes the kit includes cards plus gift bags, banners, treat bags, or boxes. Other times, it’s home décor, giftables, or just treat packaging. No matter what it is—we promise you’ll love it, or we’ll make it right!
