April Paper Pumpkin…You Are My Anchor

I love the beach and all things nautical so you can see why this month’s Paper Pumpkin is one of my all time favorites! Check out this video showcasing this month’s kit!

Most of the time I use the contents of the kits and make my own cards but this month I could have easily followed the directions and made them exactly as shown in the kit and been thrilled with the result. The kit includes supplies for 20 cards and 4 boxes! I love the 3 x 3 note cards and gift boxes and I thought about keeping a set for me and giving the other 3 sets as gifts. The 3 x 3 cards are great for gift enclosures and/or notes to tuck in lunchboxes and briefcases; however, I decided to play around and turn some of them in to cards I could send in the mail.  I love the stamps and the dies included in this kit! I recommend Paper Pumpkin subscribers purchase the note cards & envelopes so they can continue to use the stamps sets and ink included in their kits to make more cards. They are a great deal for 20 cards and envelopes! Each month I send my Paper Pumpkin subscribers exclusive alternative projects ideas using the products in their kits.   I know there are others like me that may not want to make multiples of the same card. I like to change it up a little. Here is an adorable matchbook treat holder I made using just the supplies in the kit. Perfect for a lifesaver candy!

These are not only fun, they are quick & easy to make!

I cut 1″ off the 3 x 3 note card so it measured 2 x 6.  Then I turned and cut 3/8″ off one end so it measured 2 x 5 5/8. I lined it up on the score board so the 3″ score lined up at the 3″ mark and then I scored it at 1/2 and 3 1/4.

Fold the score lines and staple an individually wrapped lifesaver under the 1/2″ flap. Stamp the sentiment above in Island Indigo Ink and tuck in the top flap.  I followed the directions in the kit to decorate and adhere the life preserver using glue dots, twine, and mini stampin’ dimensionals. Adhere to the front and that’s all there is to it!

These little treats are great to have on hand to give out as you go through the drive thru to pick up your morning coffee or give to friends, hairdressers, “helpers” throughout the day, etc.
