September Paper Pumpkin: Something Good to Eat

Whether you’re planning Thanksgiving, Halloween, or other fall festivities, Paper Pumpkin has everything you need. This month’s kit, Something Good to Eat, includes 16 food-safe treat tubes plus stamps, stickers, and embellishments to help you dress them up for any occasion.

This kit comes together quickly so you can party right away. No tricks, just treats! Watch it in action at PumpkinHowTo.com.

While you’re experimenting with your trendy treat tubes, don’t forget to try some other projects. Here are some additional ideas to get you started.

For instance, if you’re going for a strictly spooky theme for Halloween, pull in some holiday catalog products like the Halloween Night Designer Washi Tape and Baker’s Twine. Then, stamp the Jack-o’-lantern face and bat from the Spooky Fun Photopolymer Stamp Set using a Basic Black Archival Stampin’ Pad.

The stamps in the kit are great for cardmaking too! Use the sentiment to stamp a fun background and banner. To achieve a two-tone pumpkin, stamp the solid pumpkin image on some scrap paper first, then (without re-inking) stamp it again to get a lighter tone. (This technique is called stamping off and it’s one that you can use again and again in your projects.) To finish, stamp the outline image on top of the solid image. (That’s called two-step stamping, another technique you’ll use a lot.)

Here’s another card with a completely different look, proving the versatility of this kit. When we were planning this stamp set, we couldn’t help but “oooh” and “ahhhh” over this adorable little sunflower! Isn’t it lovely? Use the Crumb Cake Note Cards & Envelopes to create a simply sunny card and you’re sure to put a smile on a friend’s face.

Now is a great time to stock up on refills so you can keep using the treat tubes for more projects this season. They’d be great filled with bath salts as a stocking stuffer or neighbor gift. Grab yours now before they disappear.

    I just subscribed to PP and looked forward to getting my first box, especially after seeing those beautiful cards made with the August kit. I was really disappointed. I didn't read the fine print, so I thought all of the kits were card kits. I have absolutely no use for these tubes and I have no one that wants to trade anything for them as others have suggested. Glad there are alternative ideas on Pinterest! Hope the Oct kit is more useable, may not continue my subscription if it's not. I'll give PP a chance, but just for a few months.

    I too opted out of the September kit. I just don't have any use for favors of any sort. Why not a kit just making Halloween cards. I would rather have two or three big stamps rather than all the little ones you come up with. A get well kit would be wonderful. The company just never address that issue,

    I like the kit. I don't want all cards, it's nice to have something different. What would I do with cards every month? As a subscriber, I enjoy the variety and would rather do a project. Good job paper pumpkin, keep up the fun projects!

    Ugh. Another PP kit that is simply not useable. I want to make cards, not figure out what to put in a silly tube - that I have no one to give it to anyway.

    I know not everyone is a fan of "favors" as their kits but many have made a great point, fill them and give them to either your downline, customers, or friends. Who cares if you don't celebrate the holiday it is intended for, shake it up a bit and make it your own. I'll admit when PP first came out, I wasn't impressed but now I LOVE waiting for the surprise each month. Do you think Bark Box gives previews of what their customers may be getting?? Thank you Stampin' Up! for making my mail box fun again!

    This kit is so versatile! Putting tic tacs in the tubes can offer a cute after dinner treat when company comes for Thanksgiving, or when friends come over to craft. Even a sweet treat for your hairdresser or doctor's receptionist or other valuable person in your life! For the person who said that the stamps that come in the kit are too small, remember that they have to fit on the D block. August's stamp set featured some lovely bigger stamps that filled that block.

    I have not really cared for the past several kits, am more interested in card making. Plan on canceling my subscription.

    I, for one, think this was fun to make and give. I want to get a refill as I can see these tubes filled with lots of fun things for the holidays and Valentine's Day. For those who did not like the kit or parts of the kit - why don't you trade somebody for something else. Maybe SU could use this as a trading post per se. We get a bunch of tags so maybe someone only wants the tubes in this kit - maybe trade for the cards from another kit? Think outside the box - nobody to give them to? How about making them and giving them to a senior center or take the kit there and let them make them. Newspaper person, mail person, grocery carry out person, or even your library. I ended up making 5 of the kits from the gem boxes and giving them to our police and fire dept as a little thank you with candy in them. Some of them really appreciated them and they see me walking our dog and stop and ask if I have any of the candy on me or just say hi and thanks. My parents are ceased and I get very sad around mother's day and father's day so when the kits are geared towards them, I give them to someone else or use just parts of the kits etc. Yes, it would be nice to preview kits but then you lose the element of surprise. Plus, you always have the option of not getting a certain month. So, since we figure the September kit will be Halloween and you don't have anyone to give treats to - then pass on that month.

    I LOVE the September kit. I don't do Halloween treats at my door, but have a handful of special kids that I want to do something special for. This are perfect! Also love that I can make many non-Halloween cards with the stamp set. Home run with this month's Paper Pumpkin, Stampin' Up!!

    Wish yo u could preview the kit so that you knew if you wanted it. I would have opted out of this one.

    The September kit did nothing to help me gain PP customers. In fact it turned away several that were considering it. I also wish we could preview the kits. Or, even better, I wish there was a 'cardmaking' PP subscription.
