For this kit, we created a fun fold card and a box. For the fun fold card, we used Lost Lagoon Cardstock for the card base and followed the score lines provided below. We then added elements from the Paper Pumpkin kit and stamped the sentiments in Lost Lagoon ink. For the box, we used Lost Lagoon Cardstock again for the card base and followed the score lines below. For some of the elements on the card and the box, we cut up the boxes to create a layer to go under the patterned paper and other elements.

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!
