Hello and welcome to this month’s A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop.  This month’s Paper Pumpkin entitled One In a Melon is truly inspirational.  If you are just starting the blog hop here with me or you came from Kelly’s blog I know that you will find lots of inspiration with this month’s alternative project each person has came up with.  Here’s a look at my projects for this month’s hop.

Paper Pumpkin 2017 June, One In A Melon, Gift Box, Card, Melon Mambo, crushed Curry, Stampin' Up!, #rickadkins, #rckinsmonstudio

For my card for one of this month’s alternative projects I used one of the cards that came in this month’s kit and cut it down just a little.  I then matted it with a very thin border of Crushed Curry and then again in just sightly larger mat in Melon Mambo.  Before attaching the card front to the card I wrapped some Crushed Curry Solid Baker’s Twine around three times and then attached this to my card front (Emerald Envy).  I attached the card front in a gallery style.  Where the top and sides are equal but there is a little more room at the bottom.  I stamped the Hooray on the banner in Crushed Curry ink and attached it to the card front.  I then took one of the banners and stamped the Hooray again in Emerald Envy and attached that right below the others.  I stamped It’s Your Day at the bottom to finish off the card.

June 2017 Paper Pumpkin, One in A melon, Card kit, Subscription, Paper Pumpkin, My Paper Pumpkin, Stampin' Up!, #rickadkins, #rckinsmontstudio

My dimensional project this month is a fun little treat box that measures about 3″ x 1 1/2, x 1.  Here’s a look at the little box.

I created this box with just one of the cards from this month’s kit.  I used my Stampin’ Trimmer to score all the lines and a little fast fuse to put it together.  I added the Melon Mambo Baker’s Twine from this months kit and a little scrap of whisper white to stamp the sentiment and flagged the end with my paper snips.  I attached the little banner with a couple mini stampin’ dimensionals.

If you missed my post from Monday I shared what this month’s kit looked like.  You can view that post here.
