Welcome to A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop! A group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators have gathered together to provide alternate project ideas featuring the Paper Pumpkin kits. Continue reading to see the projects I made for the hop, find links to the blogs of the other blogs, and learn more about the next kit (December 10th is the last day to subscribe – details at the end of this post).
Today’s hop features the November 2022 Paper Pumpkin Kit – From the North Pole. This kit came with materials to make 12 Christmas tags. I used a couple of elements in the kit plus some cardstock to make a box topper.
Alternate Project Ideas
Christmas Box Topper
For the box, I put together one of the Scalloped Kraft Treat Boxes. Then I made a paper rosette with Sweet Sorbet cardstock. I used two cardstock pieces, measuring 1-1/2″ x 11″ and scoring at every 1/2″ along the 11″ side. Then I accordion folded both pieces and glued them together to make a circle.
Once that glue was dry, I set the circle on the Silicone Craft Sheet and pressed it “flat” to form the rosette shape. With one hand, I held the rosette down, and with my other, I squeezed some hot glue into the small hole in the center of the circle. I had to hold the rosette in place for a couple of minutes for the glue to dry.
After that, the rosette popped right off the Silicone Craft Sheet. I added it to the top of the box with a Dimensional in the center. For the large stamped circle, I stamped the deer image with Sweet Sorbet ink. Then I cut one of the sparkly snowflakes in half and glued it behind the stamped piece. This layered piece is added to the rosette with a Dimensional in the center.
