Paper Pumpkin Pop-Up Blog Hop for October

Paper Pumpkin Pop Up Blog Hop

It’s time for the Paper Pumpkin Pop-Up Blog Hop! Yes, this is my second Paper Pumpkin themed blog hop using the September Frights & Delights Paper Pumpkin kit. The alternate project I made for today’s hop coordinates with the projects I made for the other hop, which you can see here. The kit makes 24 adorable Halloween treat bags, but I used some of the pieces to make this shiny card. I like the way the spider webs on the clear bag reflect in the Silver Foil layer.

Here’s what I made:

Broadway Star Cards & Holder for the APPT Blog Hop

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

It’s time for the APPT (A Paper Pumpkin Thing) Blog Hop for June. This month’s PP kit, called Broadway Star, coordinates with the new Broadway Bound suite in the annual catalog, and it is a winner winner chicken dinner! It’s all so fun and bright and cheery. You can’t help but smile. For today’s hop I made some small note cards and a holder to store them in.

There are so many different things you can make using this kit, especially when you combine it with the products in the suite. I decided to keep it rather simple. The Candle Embellishments are the only thing from the suite I used on my projects. I didn’t even use a stamp, even though the ones in the PP kit and the ones in the suite are terrific. 

This is the Paper Pumpkin kit…

cards and box, June 2018 Paper Pumpkin for APPT Blog Hop, Stampin' Up! #stampcandy cards and box, June 2018 Paper Pumpkin for APPT Blog Hop, Stampin' Up! #stampcandy

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • cut 3 black striped and 3 green cards down to 4-1/2″ x 6-3/4″, making sure to keep the score line centered, so once the cards are folded they measure 4-1/2″ x 3-3/8″ – in other words, cut 1″ x 8-1/2″ strip off the long side, and cut 7/8″ off each end
  • scored one of the envelopes 1/2″ in from either side and 1/2″ in from the bottom, then burnished the folds with a bone folder

Cut using Paper Snips:

  • cut away the outer edges of the envelope flap, that fall outside the score lines

Assembled the cards:

  • burnished the fold in the card bases with a Bone Folder
  • banners applied onto the front of the card bases (green onto the black card, and white onto the green card)
  • balloon applied to the left side of the card front
  • gold Hooray applied to the banner
  • tied bows with the black & gold twine from the kit and adhered them to the balloons on the green cards using a rolled up glue dot
  • applied self stick sequins to the front of the black & white cards

Assembled the holder:

  • applied a self stick red layer onto the front of the envelope
  • glued two cakes together to make a taller cake, then glued them onto the red layer
  • applied 5 gold candles onto the red layer
  • applied a self stick gold Hooray onto the front of the flap
  • used an Embossing Buddy to powder the bits of the Hooray that stick out from the flap, so they wouldn’t be sticky
  • with one hand inside the envelope and one hand outside, flattened the sides and bottom until they were square
  • tucked under the points at the bottom corners and glued them to the bottom of the holder
  • put the cards in the holder and tied it closed with a piece of the black & gold twine
