September's Paper Pumpkin Does Double Duty

 I had two purposes in mind for my September Paper Pumpkin Kit! I haven't done a Kid's Class since the pandemic hit so I thought the treat holders would make a great project for kids to give to their best friends for Halloween. That will be a class coming up in October, so keep your eyes on my online events if you have kiddos! That will be limited attendance so you will have to register quickly once the class is open for registration.

The second project I had in mind was to make simple customer thank you cards using the left-overs from the treat holder projects and Whisper White Note Card & Envelopes.  I also added some leftover strips of Plaid Tidings 6x6 Designer Series Paper on some of them.

The treat holders are super cute! I think the kids will enjoy putting them together:

  • These adorable little pentagonal Halloween crackers are big enough to hold 3 or 4 Hersey kisses or a small chocolate bar. In order to have enough for a class, 2 of the bases come from the kit and 2 of them are made by me using the kit base as a template and covered with panels of Plaid Tidings 6x6 DSP.
  • The embellishments are all from the kit - lots of fun die cuts to use!

  • I managed to get 19 Thank You cards from the left overs supplies. Besides using strips of the Plaid Tidings DSP and the die cuts from the September Kit, I also stamped several pumpkins using the stamp from the set that came with the kit and coloured the images in using Stampin' Blends in Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive and Soft Suede.
  • I've just shown you a sample. Each card was different in some way, depending on which elements I used and how I arranged them.
If you like what you see, Paper Pumpkin kits are always a good value. The next kit is a holiday themed one. To get it you need to subscribe by Oct. 10, by clicking HERE.

Keep on the look out in my Online Classes for the Kid's Halloween Class coming up in October.
