A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop: To You and Yours Nov 2018 Holiday Acetate Gift Box

Paper Pumpkin Thing Monthly Blog Hop Dawn Olchefske #paperpumpkin #dostamping

Welcome to the A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop! 

I'm excited to join this talented group of stampers to share alternate ideas for Paper Pumpkin Kits.  Today we're sharing the November 2018 Paper Pumpkin Kit - To You and Yours.

Nov 2018 Paper Pumpkin To You and Yours Blop Hop | Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #toyouandyours #simplestamping

The Holiday Paper Pumpkin kit always one of my favorites that I look forward to receiving and this year's "To You and Yours" didn't disappoint.  I'm sharing a quick & cute Holiday Acetate Gift Box.     

On Tuesday, my Stamping Club Members made this box using the Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper and thought that it might look nice with this month's Paper Pumpkin kit.  Again, I started with the patterned paper on the inside of the envelope (my favorite!)  See the instructions below...

How'd She DO That? Holiday Acetate Gift Box:

  1. Cut an Acetate Card Box in half at 4"  (this will make two boxes).
  2. Create Insert using a card base from the kit. 
    • Cut a 5-5/8" x 2-7/8" piece (don't worry where the score line lands). 
    • With 5-5/8" side against straight edge of trimmer, score at 3-1/4", 3-7/8" and 4-1/2". 
    • Ignoring the original score line - fold on score lines and insert into box
  3. Create cover using an envelope from the kit. 
    • Cut a 4-3/8" x 5" patterned piece.
    • With 5" side against straight edge of trimmer, score at 3" x 3-5/8". 
    • Fold on score lines and insert into box. 
    • TIP: I like to tuck the back piece to rest between the box and the closed lid.  Or you can put a couple glue dots on the back as well.
  4. Wrap completed box with twine from kit and tie in a bow - position it at the lower front of the box.  Put one dimensional over the twine near the bottom of the fold-over flap.
  5. Stamp greeting on a label from the kit.  Adhere one leaf to back, then adhere to fold-over flap with two dimensionals (one in each upper corner).  

Nov 2018 Paper Pumpkin To You and Yours Blop Hop | Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #toyouandyours #simplestampingCreate two Mini Cards/Tags:

  1. Cut two 3" x 6" pieces of Very Vanilla cardstock.  Fold in half.
  2. Stampin greeting.  Stamp leaves with Garden Green ink (one stamped-off)
  3. Add sequin from kit.
  4. Use as gift card or tags.

Candy Bar Wrap (a small Hershey's Chocolate Bar). :

  • You should have a scrap leftover from the card base.  Cut down to 2-7/8" x 2-1/2".
  • Wrap tightly around the card, "creasing the edges" as you go around.
  • Adhere ends together on the back with glue dots.

I hope you enjoyed this fun Holiday Acetate Gift Box.  They make for great last minute gifts or for co-workers, teachers, etc.

Next stop on our blog hop is Candy Ford.  See the full list below.

A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop: Friends of a Feather Oct 2018

Paper Pumpkin Thing Monthly Blog Hop Dawn Olchefske #paperpumpkin #dostamping

Welcome to the A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop! 

I'm excited to join this talented group of stampers to share alternate ideas for Paper Pumpkin Kits.  Today we're sharing the October 2018 Paper Pumpkin Kit - Friends of a Feather.

Oct 2018 Paper Pumpkin Friends of a Feather Blop Hop | Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #friendsofafeather
Am I the only one that looks at the Paper Pumpkin envelopes first?  Often times the inside of the envelopes is patterned, which gives the kits even more possibilities. And Friends of a Feather didn't let me down - in fact, there are two colored patterns - yippee!

My cards came together quickly using the inside of the envelopes and two punches, Pretty Label Punch and Starburst Punch.

Oct 2018 Paper Pumpkin Friends of a Feather Blop Hop | Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #friendsofafeather

This one is my favorite!  I adore the Fresh Fig pattern from the inside of the envelope. The trick is to trim off 1/4" from the sides of the envelope and then unfold to reveal the pattern side.  For both of today's cards, I used a piece measuring 5" x 3-3/4". 

How'd She DO That? Tips for Friends of a Feather cards:

  • Paper:
    • Fresh Fig (8-1/2" x 5-1/2" card base)
    • Whisper White (scraps for Pretty Label Punch)
    • Cajun Craze (scraps for Starburst Punch)
    • Envelope "paper" (5" x 3-3/4")
  • Ink: Fresh Fig
  • Other:  Pretty Label Punch, Starburst Circle Punch, Rhinestone Jewels

Oct 2018 Paper Pumpkin Friends of a Feather Blop Hop | Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #friendsofafeather

Then I just had to use the other envelope with Grapefruit Grove.  Which one do you like best?  Grapefruit Grove or Fresh Fig?

I received most of these fabulous Halloween creations from swaps groups (DOstamperSTARS and Advisory Board Alumni).  Additionally, a few are creations that were on display at our annual Creative Connections event in September.

A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop: Frights & Delights

Paper Pumpkin Thing Monthly Blog Hop Dawn Olchefske #paperpumpkin #dostamping

Welcome to the A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop! 

We are a group of stampers creating and sharing alternate ideas for Paper Pumpkin Kits.  Today we're sharing ideas for the September 2018 Paper Pumpkin - Frights & Delights

September 2018 Paper Pumpkin Frights & Delights Blop Hop | Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #frightsanddelights

I'm really enjoying the Frights & Delights kit.  Even though I don't need a lot of treat bags, I'm having fun creating some alternate projects with the spooky die cuts.   

For my first project, I immediately thought about making a banner with the treat topper tags.

September 2018 Paper Pumpkin Frights & Delights Blop Hop | Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #frightsanddelights

Frights & Delights Banner

This fun banner uses supplies from the kit (plus scraps of black cardstock for the ghost & pumpkin).  You'll notice that the "treat tags" are different sizes - here's how:

  • Short ones are folded on the pre-scored line
  • Longer ones are scored at 1" and then folded (do not fold on the original score line)
  • Each tag is folded over the twine and secured together with glue dots! 
  • This was tons of fun to make and came together quickly - give it a try!

Frights & Delights Boo Card

I'm not sure why, but I'm drawn to Stampin' Up!'s new purples!  So glad they compliment this kit nicely. Once I decided on my colors, everything came together quickly.  Here's how:

A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop: Blissful Blooms

Paper Pumpkin Thing Monthly Blog Hop Dawn Olchefske #paperpumpkin #dostamping

Welcome to the A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop! 

I'm excited to join this talented group of stampers to share alternate ideas for Paper Pumpkin Kits.  Today we're sharing the August 2018 Paper Pumpkin - Blissful Bloom

Paper Pumpkin Blissful Blooms Blop Hop | Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #blissfulblooms

First off - this month's kit is awesome!  The beautiful flower images just take your breath away. 

For my alternate idea, I wanted to come up with an easy way to use one of the kit's cards to make two.  This 2-card gift set was lots of fun to make.   (see below) and are wrapped up with their envelopes with a belly band.

These are what I call, a "panel card".  Which means, the card base is 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" and doesn't open, it's just a panel...hence the name!  They have a simple but clever opening,  As you can see, the "card" that opens is actually approximately one-half of one of the cards from the kit...getting more from your Blissful Blooms kit!

How'd She DO That? Tips for Blissful Blooms Panel cards:

  • Paper:
    • Use the card base from the kit with flowers in the center
      1. Fold card on the score line.  Cut in half at 2-3/4" through both layers.
      2. Cut 1/4" off the "white edge" (top or bottom) from each piece, through both layers. Each piece should measure 4-1/4" x 2-1/2" (folded)
    • Old Olive (card #1= 2-3/4" x 4-1/4", card #2= 2-3/4" x 4-3/8")
    • Daffodil Delight (4-1/4" x 5-1/2" card base)
    • Whisper White (scraps for Pretty Label Punch)
    • Mossy Meadow (scraps for 1-3/4" Circle Punch
  • Ink: Mossy Meadow
  • Other:  Pretty Label Punch, 1-3/4" Circle Punch, Rhinestone Jewels
  • Tip:  Put dimensionals only on the side that adheres to the smaller folded card (not to the Daffodil panel).

To make the belly band:

  • Open one of the envelopes to reveal the inside pattern. 
  • I trimmed the center area of the envelope to 3" (tip: cut 1-1/2" from both sides of the side "points").  Finished piece should measure approx 3" x 11-1/4".
  • Stack up 2 envelopes and 2 cards (faced down), wrap belly band around and secure with a glue dot.
  • Wrap twine around belly band and tie in a bow.  NOTE: I pulled the silver thread from the twine.
  • Tag is 1-1/2" & 1-3/4" circle punches and 1/8" handheld circle punch.  Stamp tag using Mossy Meadow & Flirty Flamingo ink.
  • Use silver thread to attach to twine bow

I hope you enjoyed these ideas. The next stop on our blog hop is Kimberley Morris See the full list below.
