Today I'm sharing an alternative idea using the Hope Box, August 2021 Paper Pumpkin kit.
The Hope Box kit included additional supplies to decorate the box. But I decided to use some of those supplies to make two cards instead, specifically the large butterfly. I cut it in half on the diagonal.
For this card, I cut a 4-1/4" x 5-3/8" portion from a card base from the kit. It already had the "splatter" printed on it.
For the other half of the butterfly, I used Pretty in Pink cardstock (4-1/8" x 5-3/8") and stamped the splatter with the same color ink. Both cards are mounted on 4-1/4" x 11" Basic White Thick card base.
- The colorful ribbon that came with the kit, was a little wide. So I trimmed it down the middle for a narrower piece of ribbon.
- Pull off the loose pieces and tie in a bow.
These are the 9 beautiful cards the kit makes, along with the decorated box. The Hope Box Refill kit is available to Paper Pumpkin subscribers.

NOTE FROM DAWN: even though these are treat packages, I love to use the supplies to make cards. This seasonal paper pumpkin kit is typically a favorite of mine and I can't wait to get it!
