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

To You and Yours Card and Box for APPT Blog Hop

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

It’s time for the A Paper Pumpkin Thing (APPT) Blog Hop! This month’s kit is called To You and Yours, and it makes 10 awesome Christmas/holiday cards. I used it to make an alternate card and treat box. I only used items from the kit, except for the following: Garden Green ink pad, one Clear Tiny Treat Box, one piece of Garden Green card stock and two pieces of Striped Burlap Trim. 

The kit comes with card layers in two different plaid designs. The envelopes are lined with a third plaid design, which is what I used on my projects today.

Here’s what I made:

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Garden Green card stock (CS) cut to 4″ x 5-1/4″ 
  • plaid paper from the inside of an envelope cut to 3-3/4″ x 5″
  • plaid paper from the inside of an envelope cut to 2″ x 6″
  • card base cut to 2″ x 8″, making sure the original score line is at the 4″ mark, then scoring at 2″ and 6″
  • die cut label cut in half

Stamped with the kit’s stamp set:

  • “For You” in Cherry Cobbler ink onto the right end of a die cut banner
  • “Happy” in Cherry Cobbler ink and “Holidays” in Garden Green ink onto the bottom half of the die cut label

Cut with a 1/2″ Circle Punch:

  • a half moon shape from one end of the 2″ x 8″ piece, to match up with the finger notch of the treat box

Assembled the card:

  • burnished the fold in the card base with a Bone Folder
  • Garden Green CS layer glued onto the front of a card base
  • plaid paper layer glued onto the Garden Green CS layer
  • the stamped half of the die cut label layered over the other half, to shorten it, and glued onto the plaid layer
  • I had to draw a line so you could see where the two halves of the label overlap:Paper Pumpkin November 2018 To You and Yours kit, alternative projects for APPT Blog Hop, Stampin' Up! #stampcandy
  • burlap trim adhered onto the plaid layer, hiding the seam in the label
  • 5 die cut sprigs bundled and tied together using a piece of Cherry Cobbler trim, then adhered to the plaid layer and burlap trim

Assembled the box:

  • assembled the treat box
  • burnished the folds in the 2″ strip cut from plaid paper, and in the 2″ strip cut from a card base
  • plaid strip inserted into the treat box side to side
  • the other strip inserted into the treat box front to back, lining up the finger notch in the front
  • put the goodies in and closed the lid (I used Hershey’s Kisses. You can see from the photos I got it just a little too full. It’s bulging a little.)
  • 10″ piece of burlap trim wrapped around the box and the ends adhered together, but not to the box, so it can slip on and off
  • 5 die cut sprigs bundled and tied together using a piece of Cherry Cobbler trim, then adhered to the ribbon on top of the box
  • “For You” banner slipped under the ribbon
