More Pocketful of Cheer Paper Pumpkin Ideas

I can't stop playing with the March 2016 Paper Pumpkin Kit, Pocketful of Cheer.   I created these two cards using one of the card bases from the kit, and cut it into two 4" x 5-1/4" panels (I like that the pattern was printed on both sides!)  Both were adhered to a 4-1/4" x 11" Whisper White Thick cardstock (140272) card base to make two cards.  See what I came up with...

Mini Drapery Fold Pocketful of Cheer March 2016 Paper Pumpkin kit alternate ideas shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #stampinup

Mini Drapery Fold Details:
(see here for another example)

  • Start with 6" x 2" piece of the printed envelope
    • (note: I squared off the bottom and the top of the envelope first.  Then trimmed out a 6" wide piece, trimming off the right scored side.  I was able to get two 6" x 2" pieces from one envelope)
  • Use Simply Score Tool to score at 3-1/4", 3-3/4", 4-3/4", & 5-1/8"
  • Turn and put a "tick mark" at 1"
  • Use Stampin' Trimmer to diagonal cut from the 1" "tick mark" to the 3-1/4" score line  
    • (note: ignore the original score line from envelope)
  • Fold back and forth at each score line - like a fan fold
    • (again, ignore the original score line from the envelope)
  • Adhere to the 4" x 5-1/4" card panel (created from one of the card bases from the kit).
  • There may be a slight overhang on the right side, just trim off with scissors.

The Pocketful of Cheer Paper Pumpkin kit has been a lot of fun to play with.  I still have two more ideas swimming around in my head.  The printed envelopes make for some great pattern paper ideas.  We'll see if I can squeeze anymore time in to play, in between working on my taxes.
