Wait...WHAT? & Joke of the Week

A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop


If you are starting here or joining me from the talented Jennifer Hills Blog - I think we all have to SQUEAL!!! Welcome to A PAPER PUMPKIN THING BLOG HOP. There are 15 of us in this hop - 15 different cards and 3-d projects!!! WHOO HOO!


I'm super excited to show you what I made with the August GIFTABLE GREETINGS PAPER PUMPKIN KIT - OMGosh the possibilities are endless! I love the whimsical feeling of this stamp set and the matching cards and die-cut adhesives are the BOMB!

Here's my projects - I love the clean and crisp look of my card and the matching nugget holder is just stinkin' cute!!!


Here's the card I designed. The only thing I added that wasn't in my kit was the strip of Basic Black cardstock and the Whisper White layer with Calypso Coral ink and a rhinestone - and we all have a little of this stuff at home right?



And now for this adorable little nugget holder...OMGosh! Isn't it the sweetest...literally?



How could I NOT make a video to show you how to make this little jewel? This is the perfect gift that doesn't take a lot of time or money - to give to just about anyone! This would be pefect for a teacher's gift - you know when they do something special for your little munchkin...or your neighbor when they catch your dog that just ran out the front door...or your bank teller for always greeting you with a smile? Think how many smiles you can make happen when you offer a gift like this for a tiny bit of kindness? It's a pretty easy little box to make - let me show you how:

Yes, that little 6-pack is certainly a winner! I love that ribbon going around it, too. Thanks for sharing a tutorial video :-D

Monika Davis

Cute! Thanks for the video on the nugget box. I'm always looking for ideas for little treats to use at my retreats.

Sara Levin

Love how that tiny strip of black makes your whole card pop! And of course the nugget carrier is fab.

Pam Braithwaite

Mary Gibson

Just love the little box. I am planning to CASE it for our team swaps this month. We cant' get paper pumpkin however your instructions are so clear I will be able to use the lovely spring items we have.
p.syour idea for the ribbon is fantastic, thank you

Donna Schnees

TFS your inspiration. Followed along with your video, it was so easy and I love the idea of the tool chest. This would be great for craft fairs to have a manly item. Love getting your emails daily. Again TFS!!
