It’s Spring with Paper Pumpkin

I got a little behind with my Paper Pumpkin since the beginning of the year. We have been doing some work in our house that started with an estimated time of two weeks but lasted two months! I have been cleaning and reorganizing every room of the house along with closets and cupboards. I have donated and thrown away so much stuff that Peter Walsh will be so proud of me! LOL Anyway, I was finally able to get a chance to play with the wonderful Paper Pumpkin and decided to get out the February kit.  Here is the video of how the kit is put together:

Isn’t it a great Paper Pumpkin?! I love getting it in my mailbox every month! It is perfect for a quick project, to put together with children or grandchildren, or just for a time when you are stuck or in a rut with your own papercrafting creativity. After putting a couple together from this kit (they will make wonderful gifts and I can even tuck in a gift card!), I decided to do something totally different with the next one. I  am now thinking that I can do something like this on the BACK of the THANKS to make it something that they can display longer. Anyway, here is what I made:

  6. I love this idea. I love my paper pumpkin but sometimes the projects just don’t speak to me to complete the whole kit the way it is intended. I love the idea of making it reversible so that it can be used for longer. Thanks for all your wonderful ideas.
