Check out this month's Paper Pumpkin kit project:

Paper Pumpkin is perfect for beginner card makers. This kit comes with easy step-by-step instructions, and everything you need to create 4 of these cards and envelopes. Plus, it is a great way to start building up a small collection of stamps and ink pads you can use on any of your paper-crafting projects. Paper Pumpkin is also great for the more advanced paper-crafters as well! With plenty of supplies in the kit, you are sure to create a fabulous project that showcases your personal style! A neighbor of mine is a big-time cyclist, so this stamp is just perfect to use on a gift bag/box with a little something just for her!

I am big on reuse and recycle, so I made use of the chipboard backing that comes in the kit. I lightly perforated both sides at 1 1/2" (being very careful not to cut all the way through), and then perforated both ends lengthwise at about 3 1/2". Be sure to use a strong adhesive like sticky strip to hold it together, then decorate as desired! How will you use your Paper Pumpkin?

supplies used on bag/box: August Paper Pumpkin kit; Whisper White, Crisp Cantaloupe and Raspberry Ripple cardstock; Coastal Cabana ink refill; Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack; Tea Lace Paper Doilies; Rhinestone Basic Jewels; 1/8" Mini Brads; Crisp Cantaloupe 3/8" ruffle stretch trim, and Raspberry Ripple 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon; other: white acrylic paint.
