APPT headerIt’s time for the June 2019 A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop! This month’s kit is called A Little Smile. It’s beach themed kit that makes 16 gift cards and envelopes with a box to hold them. I used the kit to create a full sized card and a little treat holder.

Be sure to hop around to all the stops to see all the alternative projects this talented group of stampers has made using the A Little Smile kit!

No, those aren’t smudge marks on the flap. They’re actually part of the weathered wood pattern of the envelope.A Little Smile June 2019 Paper Pumpkin Kit from Stampin' Up!, alternative projects for the A Paper Pumpkin Thing blog hop, made by Candy Ford #stampcandy

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my paper trimmer:

  • Coastal Cabana card stock (CS) cut to 4-1/4″ x 11″, then scored in half at 5-1/2″
  • Crumb Cake CS layer cut to 3-3/4″ x 5″
  • Whisper White CS layer cut to 3-3-8″ x 4-5/8″
  • two card fronts from the kit cut to 3-1/4″ x 2-1/4″
  • Whisper White CS cut to 4″ x 5-1/4″ for the inside of the card base
  • Coastal Cabana envelope from the kit scored 1/2″ from the bottom and from both sides

Stamped with the A Little Smile stamp set:

  • sentiment in Coastal Cabana ink onto a die cut label from the kit, near one end

Cut using Paper Snips:

  • shortened the stamped label, using another label as a template, to match the curve
  • envelope flap trimmed along the score lines

Assembled the card:

  • burnished the fold in the card base with a Bone Folder
  • two trimmed card fronts glued onto the Whisper White CS layer
  • Whisper White CS layer glued onto the Crumb Cake CS layer
  • anchor trinket strung onto the twine from the kit, then the twine wrapped around the layers, with the ends secured onto the back using Tear & Tape
  • anchor secured in place using a Mini Glue Dot
  • 3 glitter starfish die cuts tucked into the twine and secured using Mini Glue Dots
  • stamped label tucked into the twine and secured using Mini Glue Dots
  • Crumb Cake CS layer adhered onto the front of the card base using Tear & Tape
  • Whisper White CS glued onto the inside of the card base

Assembled the treat holder:

  • burnished the folds in the envelope with a Bone Folder
  • inverted the sides and bottom to form a box
  • put treats (I used small chocolates) in the holder and closed the flap
  • twine tied around the treat holder and tied in a bow
