A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop Pining for Plaid


Welcome to the October A PAPER PUMPKIN THING BLOG HOP! I am so excited to have you join in the hop whether you are stopping by from the amazing Jennifer Hill or this is your first stop, I'm super excited to have you here!

The October kit is called Pining For Plaid and it is GOR-JEE-OUS!!! I love the shaker cards:




Here's the alternate card I came up with. A little SILVER GLIMMER PAPER with a cute little box and I think I have a winner.


This box is so simple it literally took me less than 5 minutes to make with the ENVELOPE PUNCH BOARD. It fits 3 Ghirardelli chocolates perfectly.


Here's a short little video to show you how to make the adorable treat box:
