More I'll Bee Yours Paper Pumpkin Aternative Ideas

I'm exited to share my last three Paper Pumpkin I'll Be Yours samples with you today.  They were featured on the Paper Pumpkin Facebook Live on Tuesday.  So, now can share them.

But first...the Refill Kit is still available for subscribers!

My first alternative idea only uses items from the kit.  Both the 3" square card and the "treat" bag.  My favorite thing about this project is the way the heart shows both on the front of the treat bag and the card when you pull it out (clever, huh?).

How'd She DO That? Valentine card

  • Trim off 1" from white part of "unfolded" 3" square card...SAVE.
  • Stamp sentiment on the white half  (below the scored line) - near left side.  Also stamp trio of flowers image randomly on piece that was trimmed off.  Add sequins, that adhere to bottom of card.
  • Insert card into bag.  Adhere heart die cut to card only - using dimensionals at the top of the heart (so it slides out easily.)
  • Stamp sentiment on tag.  Add a piece of twine, tie in a bow.  Adhere to heart with glue dots.  Then add sequin.
  • Optional:  For mailing, it will fit perfectly in a Note Card Envelope size.  But will also fit into our regular medium envelopes

For my next alternative project - I added a little color to the bee die cuts with Highland Heather!

For my last project...this fun Heart Foil Tin treat will be going to my hubby, who is a fan of Bit-O-Honey.   This would also be a fun little treat for co-workers (and...Bit-O-Honey is gluten-free).

I picked colors that coordinate with the candy wrapper: Real Red, Pacific Point and Crushed Curry.  Extra supplies include:  Heart Doilies,  Heart Punch Pack and Real Red 3/8" Double-Stitched Satin Ribbon.
