A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop

  PPBlog Hop

Welcome to 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 Rachel Tessman's Blog or this is your first stop, I'm super excited to have you here!

If you have never subscribed to Paper Pumpkin - Stampin' Up! just announced at FLASH SALE - you can get your first kit for $5!!!! See details below.

I absolutely LOVED this month's Paper Pumpkin kit! It just SCREAMS summer to me and that's my FAVORITE season - I LOVE the heat and sun and smell of fresh cut grass and I could go on and on and on...but instead we'll switch subjects and talk about stamping! LOL!

I love getting my PAPER PUMPKIN KIT in the mail every month because I LOVE SURPRISES! Here's the adorable ONE IN A MELON June Kit:


Here's the ONE IN A MELON stamp set that came with the kit:


Each stamper in this blog hop is challenged to come up with an alternate card idea and a 3-D project. And I love a challenge...the challenge to come up with something other than what the kit was intended for. So I created these adorable projects:


 Here's a close up of my card. I used the gift bag for the striped background - YUMMY right?


Card Dimensions:

  • Lemon Lime Twist card base - 8-1/2 x 5-1/2
  • Basic Black - 4 x 5-1/4, 4 x 1/2 & 4" scrap
  • Striped paper (kit) - 3-7/8 x 5-1/8
  • Whisper White - 2-1/4 x 4

And these two cute little boxes - oh my! The tiny box below is the perfect size for a Ghirardelli chocolate and both of these would make a great gift for a friend or co-worker or teacher...to brighten their day!


Tiny Box Dimensions:

  • Striped paper (kit) - 5-1/2 x 3-1/2, scored at 1/2" on all sides and 2-1/2 & 3" on long side
  • Whisper White scraps


The TRIANGLE BOX below is easy and don't you love that it's shaped like a wedge of watermelon? I put some Sour Patch Watermelon candies in it.


Triangular Box Dimensions:

  • Melon Mambo - 9-3/4 x 7, scored on the long side at 1-3/4, 4-1/4 & 7-1/4, scored on the short side at 2" & 5"
  • Striped panels - 1 @ 1-1/2 x 2-3/4, 2 @ 2-1/4 x 2-3/4 & 1 @ 2-3/4 x 2-3/4
  • Whisper White scrap

Here's a video I made to show you some tips for the card and step by step instructions for both boxes...I'm NICE like that!
