A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop - alternate projects made with the Paper Pumpkin kits

It’s time for the APPT Blog Hop for the January 2019 Be Mine Paper Pumpkin kit! I have really enjoyed playing with this month’s kit. First, it’s adorable and fun. Second, it comes with a lot of extra pieces. Third, since it coordinates with the Animal Expedition suite from the Annual catalog, you can do lots and lots of different things with it. And fourth, I love puns – “you’re one in a chameleon.”  For today’s projects I made a mini card that can be tucked into a 3″ x 3″ envelope or tied onto a gift, and a Ghirardelli treat wrapper. (Target has lots of cute Valentine’s versions of lots of your favorite candies.)

Here’s what I made:

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Whisper White card stock (CS) cut to 2″ x 2-3/4″
  • Melon Mambo Designer Series Paper (DSP) cut to 4″ x 4-1/4″ 
  • one of the pillow boxes in the kit cut to 3″ x 4-3/4″, with the score line in the box at the halfway point (2-3/8″) of the new card base (when folded, the card measured 2-3/8″ x 3″)

Stamped with the Be Mine stamp set:

  • sentiment in Melon Mambo ink onto one of the shorter die cut labels in the kit
  • sentiment in Melon Mambo ink onto the white side of one of the die cut hearts in the kit

Cut using the 1/8″ Circle Punch:

  • through both layers of the card, at the top left corner

Assembled the one in a chameleon card:

  • burnished the fold in the card base with a Bone Folder
  • stamped heart die cut glued onto the front of the card
  • chameleon die cut glued over the heart
  • 2 heart enamel shapes applied above the chameleons’ heads
  • Whisper White CS glued onto the inside of the card
  • Flirty Flamingo ribbon run through the hole in the card and tied in a bow

Assembled the Ghirardelli treat wrapper:

  • wrapped the DSP around the two candies, and glued the overlapping ends on the back
  • glued both ends closed
  • chameleon die cut glued onto a round die cut from the kit
  • 2 heart enamel shapes applied above the chameleons’ heads
  • sentiment label glued onto the round die cut
  • round die cut glued onto the front of the DSP wrapper

I used Multipurpose Liquid Glue on today’s projects, but you can certainly use the adhesives that come in the kit.
