A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop - Wildflower Wishes

Paper Pumpkin

If you are starting here or joining me from the talented Melissa Thomas - I think you'll be pleasantly surprised!!! Welcome to A PAPER PUMPKIN THING BLOG HOP. There are 16 of us in this hop!!! WHOO HOO! I think you love what we've created with the February Paper Pumpkin Kit - WILDFLOWER WISHES - it's soooo cute!


This month's kit is adorable! I love the die cut words and the bright and colorful floral paper is soooo pretty!


Here are the alternate projects that I came up with. I love the printed layers to put on the front - they are so soft and subtle:


Here's a cute little box that makes a perfect little gift to give with a card - a gift that doesn't break the bank but shows that little extra effort.



  • Crumb Cake 7-3/4" x 2-1/4" scored at 3/8" & 1-7/8" on the short side and on the long side score at 3/4", 1-5/8", 3-1/8", 4-5/8", 6-1/8" & 7"
  • Crumb Cake 4-1/2" x 1-1/2" scored at 1-1/2" & 3" on the long side


I have a quick video tutorial to show you how I made the box here:

I chose the STITCHED SHAPES FRAMELITS for my greeting layer because they are amazing. They add that extra little bit of charm to a shape don't they? The yellow flower is a die cut adhesive sticker - there's a ton of them in this kit! And how about those vellum leaves??? LOVE!


Here's a fun card - I just added the long floral tag and layered the STITCHED SHAPES FRAMELIT over the Daffodil Delight  LAYERING OVALS scallop edge image to make a fun focal point on this card. I also took the letters from various self-adhesive tags to spell out HELLO. The black line and FRIEND word are stamped.

I don't normally reach for "pink", but I love the pop of color that Melon Mambo adds to your projects! And I always love little single treat holders, thanks for taking the time to do a video tutorial :-D
