Paper Pumpkin by Max: Big Wish rating

As some of you know, I gave my grandson Max a subscription to Paper Pumpkin for his birthday.  Not only is he lovin''s the gift that keeps on giving, as it comes every month!  What fun for a 7 year old, right?

He and his brother, Sam stopped over yesterday (and Angie, of course) for a visit.  They came bearing gifts.  A thank you gift.  Take a look...

The card and box are from the Big Wish kit (from July).  That little box is bigger than you think.  It fit 11 Ghirardelli chocolate squares in there - yum!

I have to admit...I'm having as much fun with him getting the Paper Pumpkin kits as he is.  Whenever he receives a new one, he gives me a call and let's me know what color ink is in that month's kit.  It's a lot of fun to hear your grandkids speak in Stampin' Up! colors.

With the Big Wish kit, there was enough to complete the following projects:

  • 6 cards and envelopes
  • 6 boxes, ribbon, tags
  • 6 extra tags

We have a rating system for each Paper Pumpkin kit.  When he's done making the kit, I ask him to rate it on a scale of 1 to 5 (five is the highest).  The "Big Wish" kit was rated a 5 on the "Max Scale" (though he said that mommy rated it a 3). 

Warms my heart!  If you're looking to create papercrafting memories with your kids, grandkids, nieces/nephews...I highly recommend giving Paper Pumpkin a try!

Or like one of my Paper Pumpkin customers...she received it as a gift from her daughter and is lovin' it!.  I just received a sweet comment from her the other day...

  • "I'm loving the gift.... of paper pumpkins from my daughter and send her one of the cards from the pkg each month. Hope SU keeps up the quality of the pp and I will put a renewal in my daughters ears when the time comes."  (She even sent a card to me!)
