Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share a few alternative projects using the May 2019 Paper Pumpkin kit Hugs from Shelli. I am super excited to play with this kit which was designed with Shelli Gardner Stampin’ Up!’s Co-Fonder. This was a super fun kit to play with and I may have been a little over zealous with my alternatives this month. So let’s jump into them right now.
So for my projects this month I created not one card but five different designs and did two of each design plus created a large gift box that would hold all ten card, envelopes and with a little room for more. This was super fun today. I kept my cards on the simple side. I used five pieces of cardstock to create each card plus the note cards that came in this month’s kit. I did throw in a couple scraps of whisper white cardstock to finish off my sentiments. Here’s a look at my cards.
,For two of the card designs I had to cut the note cards in half to have enough to make all 10 cards. So once I had these all made I needed someplace to put them so I created a large gift box that will hold all 10 cards plus envelopes for each. This makes for a super quick and easy gift. Here’s my gift box.
I used a couple pieces of cardstock to make the box and a little designer series paper. The designer Series paper you see comes from the Bird Ballard Designer Series Paper Stack (new in the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog). From this month’s kit I used some of the die cut elements and the Pretty Peacock Velvet ribbon. This box is super easy to make as you will see in my video tutorial.
