Sentimental Rose Projects for APPT April 2019 Blog Hop

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

It’s time for the APPT April 2019 Blog Hop! This month’s kit is called Sentimental Rose, and includes all you need to make 9 beautiful cards AND a box to put them in. Be sure to hop around to all the stops. You don’t want to miss any of the great alternative projects you can make with this month’s kit.

Here’s what I made:

A flatware/napkin holder and a card for a wedding shower. Since these were the only napkins I had with pink in them, I took the color (Lemon Lime Twist) from them for the projects. The Lemon Lime Twist card base and the Gingham Gala Adhesive Backed sequins are the only things you see that didn’t come in the kit. (I put the sequins on the box, but forgot to put them on the card before I took the photo. Oops!)

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Lemon Lime Twist card stock (CS) cut to 5-12″ x 8-1/2″, then scored in half at 4-1/4″
  • acrylic box from the kit cut down from 5-1/4″ long to 4″ long – just cut off one end of the box

Stamped with the Sentimental Rose stamp set:

  • sentiment in Gray Granite ink onto a die cut tag from the kit

Assembled the card:

  • burnished the fold in the card base with a Bone Folder
  • corrugated piece glued onto the front of the card base
  • printed piece from the kit adhered over the corrugated piece using Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • left half of sentiment glued onto the printed piece, and the right half adhered onto the corrugated piece using Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • 3 Lemon Lime Twist sequins applied onto the card front (Oops! I forgot to put these on the card before I took the photos.)

Assembled the flatware holder:

  • burnished the folds in the cut down acrylic box with a Bone Folder
  • folded in the flaps on the bottom end to form the holder
  • long corrugated piece wrapped around the bottom of the holder and adhered the ends together with the attached peel and stick adhesive (This helps the holder stand up.) If you feel the need, you can put a couple of glue dots under the back of the corrugated piece to hold it to the acrylic box.
  • adhered a printed piece onto the corrugated piece and the acrylic holder using Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • 3 Lemon Lime Twist sequins applied onto the front of the holder
  • napkin and flatware inserted into holder

APPT Day By Day Blog Hop

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

It’s time for the last A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop of the year! The December kit is called Day By Day and if featured a cute little calendar and a gift box it fits in. For my alternate projects I used some of the calendars to make birthday cards and some to make a calendar cube. I’ll send the cards to someone with a birthday or anniversary that month, and I’ll circle the date on the calendar – there’s a handy little circle stamp in the set just for this purpose! I’ve left the insides blank for now so I can stamp the appropriate sentiment in them later. I haven’t lined these yet either, but I’ll glue a piece of Whisper White card stock inside each one for the sentiment and handwritten note. 

The kit makes an 18 month calendar: January 2019 – June 2020. You can make 3 cubes, 6 months each, or you can use some for cards. Get two kits and you can do both!

Here’s what I made:

2018-12 Paper Pumpkin alternate projects Candy Ford #stampcandy

 

I only got 3 cards made so far. For the first two I used only kit components on a card base. For the third one I also used a Gold Foil Sheet and some ribbon not in the kit.2018-12 Paper Pumpkin alternate projects Candy Ford #stampcandy

The cube is 4″ x 4″ x 4″. I glued on the calendars going in all different directions.2018-12 Paper Pumpkin alternate projects Candy Ford #stampcandy

Here you can see where the two boxes go together to make the cube.2018-12 Paper Pumpkin alternate projects Candy Ford #stampcandy

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • 12″ x 12″ Grapefruit Grove card stock (CS) scored at 4″ and 8″ in both directions
  • Grapefruit Grove CS cut to 11-7/8″ x 11-7/8″, then scored at 3-15/16″ from all four sides
  • Pool Party, Grapefruit Grove, and Gray Granite CS cut to 4-1/4″ x 11″, then scored in half at 5-1/2″
  • Gold Foil Sheet cut to 4″ x 5-1/4″
  • trimmed the sides off the sheets of white rectangular stickers (see below) – this gave me more stickers of the same length but different widths, some 1-1/8″ tall and some 3/4″ tall
  • trimmed some of the 1-1/8″ tall stickers to 3/4″ tall
  • trimmed the tops off the calendars for the cube and for one of the cards
  • 2018-12 Paper Pumpkin alternate projects Candy Ford #stampcandy

Stamped with the Day By Day stamp set:

  • dots in Pool Party, Grapefruit Grove, and Gray Granite inks onto some of the stickers

Assembled the cards:

  • burnished the folds in the card bases with a Bone Folder
  • applied a stamped sticker onto two of the calendars, then glued them onto the front of the card bases
  • ran a 4″ piece of ribbon through the two holes and adhered the ends on the back
  • tied a 4″ piece of ribbon around the first piece of ribbon and trimmed the ends
  • adhered the first two calendars onto the fronts of the card bases using Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • gold foil layer glued onto the front of the third card base
  • calendar with the top trimmed away (to remove the holes) adhered onto the gold layer
  • a piece of Gray Granite ribbon adhered onto the calendar
  • a piece of gold ribbon adhered onto the Gray Granite ribbon
  • glued (or will glue) a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of Whisper White CS to the inside of each card base

Assembled the cube:

  • burnished the folds in the two large Grapefruit Grove CS pieces with a Bone Folder
  • cut down one score line on each corner, only to the first score line it crosses
  • cut away most of the 4 corner panels (the green areas below) leaving a little for a tab
  • cube diagram for 2018-12 Paper Pumpkin alternate projects Candy Ford #stampcandy
  • glued each tab to the inside of the adjacent side – this gave me two topless boxes
  • inserted the smaller box inside the larger box, open side first, and put a little adhesive just inside the seam where they met
  • glued the 6 calendars (I used January – June 2020) onto the 6 sides of the cube
  • applied a 3/4″ tall stamped sticker to each calendar

Bitty Blooms Dashing Along Dispenser

Need a really last minute gift? Wrap something ordinary, like a plain soap / lotion dispenser, in decorative paper and add a few embellishments, and you have a lovely and sensible gift that anyone can use. I used Dashing Along Designer Series Paper to wrap the dispenser. I used a new punch from the 2019 Occasions catalog (Bitty Blooms Punch Pack sneak peek!) for the little flowers around the top. The bow on the tag is from the Bring on the Presents bundle.

Here’s what I made:

Dashing Along Snowflake Showcase Faceted Ornament

Recently I saw a video for a die that cut out the parts for this ornament, but I thought I could do it myself. So I did! It looks much more complicated than it is. It’s just one piece of paper scored and folded, with a few pieces cut away. Add a piece of twine or ribbon and some glue and you’re done! I used the Dashing Along Designer Series Paper (DSP) and the Snowfall Thinlits Dies to decorate the ornament. By the way, the Dashing Along DSP was a limited time offer that expired, but it’s back while supplies last!!!

Today is the last day to order the Showflake Showcase products! Scroll down to the bottom of this post for details.

 

Here’s what I made:

Snowfall Thinlits, Snowflake Showcase, faceted ornament, Christmas ornament, Stampin' Up! #stampcandy

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Garden Green card stock (CS) cut to 8-1/4″ x 5″
  • the same Garden Green CS scored every 1″ in both directions
  • the same Garden Green CS scored diagonally in 8 squares as shown in diagram below
  • Whisper White CS cut to 3/4″ x 3/4″ (4 pieces)
  • Dashing Along Designer Series Paper (DSP) cut to 1/2″ x 1/2″ (4 pieces)

Die cut using the Snowfall Thinlits:

  • 12 snowflakes from a scrap of Whisper White CS

Cut using Paper Snips:

  • remove the green shaded areas shown in the diagram

Cut using a 1/8″ Circle Punch:

  • a hole in the center of the four flaps that will form the top of the box

Assembled the faceted ornament:

  • burnished all the folds in the Garden Green CS
  • glued the tab to the inside of the opposite end
  • folded in the four tabs that form the bottom, pushing in the diagonally scored areas, and glued the tabs together
  • NOTE: I think it’s easiest to fold in two opposite flaps and glue together, because it’s easier to keep them square, then to glue the other two opposite flaps. 
  • twine looped and tied a knot. then strung through the holes in the four top flaps, leaving the knot on the inside of the ornament, and pushing the flaps down to the knot. The flaps pulling outward against the twine holds them in place.
  • DSP pieces onto the Whisper White CS pieces
  • Whisper White CS pieces glued onto four of the panels – every other panel around the middle of the ornament
  • snowflakes glued onto the remaining 12 square panels of the ornament

You can put treats in the ornament. I recommend gluing the top flaps together, and leaving the bottom flaps open to insert the goodies. Then apply thin velcro pieces to the bottom flaps so the recipient can easily get to the goodies inside. I haven’t actually tried this yet but I have ordered some velcro to try it. I’ll let you know how it works. These are the ones I’ve ordered.

Very Vintage Tissue Box Cover

I can’t seem to get enough of the Very Vintage host stamp set. Especially the large floral image I’ve used today…..and the last few days. At least today’s project is a little different in that it isn’t even a card. It’s a tissue box cover. I like to make at least one whenever a new catalog comes out. 

A tissue box cover comes in really handy when you want to match the decor of your room, or when you order a case of what you think are solid color boxes of tissues but instead receive a case with cartoon characters on them. Nothing against the cartoon characters, but they aren’t what I had planned on.

 

Here’s what I made:

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Coastal Cabana card stock (CS) cut to 9-1/2″ x 5-1/4″, then scored at 4-1/2″ and 9″ (2 pieces)
  • Bermuda Bay CS cut to 6-9/16″ x 6-9/16″, and scored 1″ from each of the four edges

Stamped with the Very Vintage stamp set:

  • floral image into Bermuda Bay ink onto a scrap of Whisper White CS

Die cut using the Layering Ovals Framelits:

  • stamped image using a scalloped oval die
  • a scrap of Bermuda Bay CS using a large plain oval die
  • a scrap of Whisper White CS using a plain oval die and a larger scalloped oval die
  • a hole in the Bermuda Bay box top using a plain oval die
  • NOTE: the box top is wider than the Big Shot platform, so I folded in two opposite sides and used them to center the die

Cut using Paper Snips:

  • one score line at each corner of the Bermuda Bay box top to create tabs

Assembled the cover:

  • folded and burnished the score lines with a Bone Folder
  • glued the skinny tab on each Coastal Cabana piece onto the inside of the other one, to create the main box
  • glued the tabs onto the inside of the adjacent sides of the box top
  • glued the die cut Whisper White oval frame around the hole in the box top
  • the stamped image onto the die cut Bermuda Bay CS oval
  • slipped the box top over the box, gluing the inside of the box top sides to the outside of the box sides
  • glued the Bermuda Bay CS oval onto the front of the box, centering it between the bottom edge of the box top and bottom edge of the box
