Paper Pumpkin Pop Up Blog Hop

It’s time for the Paper Pumpkin Pop-Up Blog Hop for the January 2019 Be Mine kit! I can’t wait to see all the alternate projects the hoppers come up with! For my projects today, I opted to keep it very simple and focus on the Be Mine stamp set from the kit. I made a 3″ x 3″ card perfect for making lots of little classmate valentines, or for tucking into a gift bag, or into your sweetie’s backpack or coat pocket. I also made a little box that holds two truffles – they have strawberry cream ones in pick wrappers for Valentine’s Day!

This month’s Be Mine kit is a-dor-a-ble. It coordinates with the Animal Expedition suite of products in the Annual Catalog. Click on the image below to see all the products in the suite.

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Whisper White Thick card stock (CS) cut to 6″ x 3″, then scored in half at 3″ for the card
  • Whisper White Thick card stock (CS) cut to 6-1/2″ x 5″, then scored according to the diagram below: 
  • score along the 5″ side at 1-1/4″ and 3-3/4″
  • score along the 6-1/2″ side at 1/2″, 2-1/4″, 3-1/2″, and 5-1/4″
  • cut along the score lines where the lines are solid in the diagram, and remove the green areas using Paper Snips
  • Lindt/Lindor Truffle Treat Holder made by Candy Ford using the January 2019 Be Mine Paper Pumpkin kit by Stampin' Up! #stampcandy

Stamped with the Be Mine stamp set:

  • 2 birds in Pool Party ink onto the front of the card, and onto the top of the box
  • heart in Petal Pink ink onto the front of the card
  • sentiment in Melon Mambo ink over the heart
  • To/From in Pool Party ink onto the front of the envelope
  • tiny hearts in Petal Pink ink onto the front of the envelope, in the bottom left and top right corners
  • tiny hearts in Petal Pink ink repeatedly onto the sides of the box
  • tiny hearts in Petal Pink ink once onto the top of the box 
  • tiny hearts in Melon Mambo ink once onto the top of the box

Cut using the 1/2″ Circle Punch:

  • finger notch in the front of the box

Assembled the card:

  • burnished the fold in the card base with a Bone Folder
  • That’s it!!! Easy peasy lemon squeezy!

Assembled the box:

  • burnished the folds in the box
  • on each side,glued the two smaller tabs to the inside of the larger tab, to create the body of the box
  • candies put inside the box, the lid closed, and the three 1/2″ tabs tucked inside
