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

Oops! I realized the 1/8″ gold ribbon I used on the third card is retired. I substituted the 1/8″ gold cord below. Looks like I need to recheck my current products!

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:

Candy Cane Season Treat Bag

Today I’m sharing a super quick and easy treat idea. I stamped directly onto a Santa’s Bag using the Candy Cane Season stamp set and Real Red ink. It isn’t waterproof, but as long as it stays dry it’s makes a great little gift. I cut the tag using the Everyday Label Punch, and tied it onto the bag using Garden Green Baker’s Twine.

Here’s what I made:
