It’s the last Thursday of the month but it’s the first Hop of the year!  Welcome to A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop for 2018 when a group of Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators bring their alternate creations using the Paper Pumpkin monthly subscription kit supplies.  Haven’t heard of Paper Pumpkin yet?  Check it out here..

This month’s Paper Pumpkin kit is so cute, and the intended purpose is to get you ready for Valentine’s Day!  If you have a little one who needs some Valentine’s for class, this kit is perfect!  Check out this fun video that shows you how the kit comes together:

These little Valentine’s are adorable pocket notes that are mailable size OR you can stick some candy treats down in there for your Valentine.  But maybe you don’t want or need Valentine cards or treats.  Don’t count this kit out!  With the supplies from the kit and just a half sheet of Flirty Flamingo cardstock, you can make a gift bundle perfect for any time of the year!

I cut apart one of heart adorned notes and used for both the banner on the card and the 3D box (what’s in it???).  I used one of the striped notes from the kit, kit it down, on the curved end, about 1/4 inch and rounded the corners again.  I also rounded the corners on the bottom of the card to match.  I layered the banner cut from the heart adorned note with the two other banners in the kit.

I used one of the striped notes to actually form a layer on the card.  I popped the scalloped layer, also from the kit, with Dimensionals.  The sentiment is stamped in Rich Razzleberry and the card was sprinkled with those cute littles enamel shapes, included in the kit.

Don’t you just love a bitty little box?  I do!  This little box has a sleeve made with the heart adorned notes from the kit.  I snipped a smaller banner from the kits banner and wrapped it with the ribbon, finishing off with a bow.

So what’s in that little box anyway?  A fun lip balm!

Thanks for hopping by!  I hope that you will keep hopping through to see what everyone else designed just for you!  Start with Monika Davis next:
