When you subscribe to Paper Pumpkin, you receive a whole tool kit every month. The kit includes stamps, ink and the pre-cut papers and stickers you need to create a set of cards complete with envelopes, or a huge bouquet of pinwheels, or a mini album, or any of a number of other projects. The tools are re-usable to let you exercise your creativity in different ways.
Each kit contains everything you need to make the project, except for scissors and perhaps adhesive. The photo shows examples from July’s kit, which held materials for six small gift boxes and six cards with envelopes. There are enough extra materials to let you use them in other ways on other projects.
One idea is to create stencils from the “Wish” stickers and the star cut-outs. The star die-cuts punch out into a star frame and a smaller solid star. There is no backing on it, so when you’ve punched out all the die-cuts, you’re ready to stencil with your own Stamping Sponges (#101610) or Stampin’ Spritzer (#126185).
For the “Wish” stencil, remove the backing sheet and rub the adhesive part with the Embossing Buddy (#103083). This will coat the sheet with powder and cover up the stickiness. Tap off the excess that doesn’t stick and you’re all set to stencil.
Paper Pumpkin is a monthly subscription that arrives in your mailbox around the 20th of the month. Once you subscribe, you are eligible to purchase the previous month’s kits or refills as available. The refills don’t include the stamps and ink of the original. You are more than welcome to use your own stamps and ink instead.
The kit is a great tool for the new or very beginning stamper, as well as the seasoned stamper who has no time to stamp. Paper Pumpkin projects only take about 30 minutes to make, and if you only make one, you can easily store the rest of the materials in the red box it comes in until you’re ready to make the rest.
