February Paper Pumpkin

Yesterday, I promised you a look at what you get with the February Paper Pumpkin kit and I know you're really going to like what you see.  I was very impressed by the quality of everything in the kit.  Here's a photo of the innards:

  • The kit includes 5 kraft heavy duty gift bags.  They are well-made and would stand up to a lot of wear.
  • There are die cut letters (with lots of every vowel - Yay!!), die cut Bermuda Bay circles and die cut Whisper White starburst circles that you can stamp on.  There are also 10 heavy-duty white ribbon handles for the bags - also impressive quality.  You get a stamp set, ink, dimensionals, mini-clothespins and bakers twine.
Here's what I made with mine:

  •  I've decided to use mine as gifts for some of my Hostesses in my Stamp Club, when it is their month to get the benefits.  I will fill them with Stampin' Up! goodies.  The letters were already printed as I mentioned before and they are mounted with dimensionals on those white starburst shapes, stamped with each of the 2 design stamps that were included along with a little stamping spot of Pistachio Pudding.
  • I added the panel of DSP from the Brights Collection Designer Series Paper Stacks, front and back.
  • I used the mini clothespin to clamp the first and last circles to the bag, then slipped a pre-cut piece of Baker's Twine (included) under the circles and up and into the clothespins.  Then I clipped the middle two circles to the twine.

  • In this shot you can see the heavy duty grosgrain ribbon that you add for the handles.  You feed the ends through the grommets and tie in a knot on the inside of the bag.  Those babies are NOT coming out, ever!

  • Here's a side view that lets you see how well constructed the bag is!  Would you like one of those filled with Stampin' Up! products?  Then why not host a workshop during Sale-A-Bration?  You could even have it at my house to save you the cleaning and baking!  Just invite your friends for a fun Girls Night Out (or Guys) and you could earn yourself extra free Hostess Rewards that Stampin' Up! is offering only during Sale-A-Bration until March 31.  Give me a call or email.  Times are booking up quickly.
