I have had so much fun playing with last month’s Paper Pumpkin kit! One of the nice things about being a Paper Pumpkin subscriber is you get to order refill kits for just $8.00! I love the shaker cards in this kit and thought they would make a fun gift set to give. I bought several extra kits, added my own touch, and split them up to make sets of 4.
I love to give cards to friends and hostesses and they also make nice gifts for teachers, hairdressers, etc. Instead of giving a set of thank you cards or all occasion cards, I decided to “shake it up” this time and let the recipient decide what kind of card it’s going to be. I stamped the die cuts with several possible sentiments and included some glue dots to adhere them to the cards. I stamped both sides of the die cut shapes to give even more options. They can choose to layer the die cuts on the front of the card or use one on the front and one on the inside. I even sponged some of the punched out leaves which they can add to the front of the envelope or on the inside of the card. There’s so many possibilities.
Here’s a look some possible cards with the added sentiments.
The recipient can decide if they need all birthday cards, thank you cards, etc.
I cut some of the die cut banners from the kit in half to give more options for sentiments. I love the “just wanted to say..” stamp. You can use it as a note and write inside or attach several different sentiments inside.
Another nice thing about this set is you have the option of making it a vertical card.
In addition to using the stamp set in the kit as well as past paper pumpkin kits, I made a few of my own banners to include some sentiments for Thanksgiving. I’m sure any Thanksgiving host would love a special card.
I hope I have given you lots of ideas and different ways to combine elements and think “outside the box”. The Paper Pumpkin kits make it quick, easy, and affordable to give lots of handmade gifts. I even like to include the stamps in the package so they have everything they need to send a card and make someone smile! Who do you know that would love a set of cards?
I’m getting together this afternoon with my Paper Pumpkin Players and I have lots of alternative ideas for them this month! We’ll be making more than just cards!
Have a wonderful day!
