January Paper Pumpkin-1

The January Paper Pumpkin has my heart. I couldn’t love this kit more. Playing around with this kit and coming up with a few different ways to use it was so much fun.

January Paper Pumpkin-2

First, I made a super simple valentine. This is for those of you, myself included, who are super busy and usually put off the treats until the last minute. This little treat is beyond easy to throw together, but it doesn’t look that way at all. The packaging and size of the chocolate work perfectly with the colors in this kit. Just a little stamping and some glue and you will have 24 of these put together in no time.

Of course I had to make a card with this kit too. I pulled in the Perpetual Birthday Calendar stamp set and some Blushing Bride ink. It is such a simple and fun card. 

January Paper Pumpkin-4

For this cute gift I made a background with the love heart stamp from the kit using Versamark ink. I then embossed the hearts with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder. I placed it on top of a piece of black and white paper from the Stacked with Love Designer Series Paper Stack. (I love that paper so much!) I wrapped a little twine around the package and clipped on the heart with the cute gold clips from the kit. Those gold clips are so darn amazing. The Happy Day stamp is from the Cheerful Critters stamp set from occasions catalog.

I hope you have as much fun playing with the Filled With Love Paper Pumpkin Kit as I did.

    Love what you did with this kit. The Packaging if really stunning and looks involved - even though I know it is quite simple to do. This set has my heart too. I just taught a class to 7 girls ages 8-11 and they LOVED making the treat bags, but I also used the stamps to have them make 2 different cards. SO easy!
