Today's post shows just a few different ways that you can use the November 2014 My Paper Pumpkin kit. I took an idea posted by my friend Boni, who made a cute hot chocolate gift with this kit.
Like Boni's idea, I cut off one side of the snowflake and glued down the other. For this card, I cut off the discarded snowflake and glued it down on the top. The sides of the lower portion are glued to make a pocket. Then it was just a matter of making a note to put into the pocket and decorate with the baker's twine and the silver snowflake and jewel.
The next thing I made was a gift card holder using the same basic idea as the card above. However, this time I stamped the snowflakes from the stamp set that came with the kit and added a snowflake charm that retired last fall. Quick and much prettier than gift card holders you buy in the store (or get free when you purchase the gift cards)!
Finally, I was left with all these parts that I cut off of the cards. I wanted to use all the pieces, and these make great gift tags! I glued down the white snowflake pieces and then the Soft Sky snowflake over it (like you would have done on the card), corner-rounded the upper corners and punched a 1/8" hole in the top center. I had enough silver tabs to add over the hole and tied baker's twine through it. The little sivler dots are the centers from the tabs, and a few jewels finish it off. On the back, I stamped the "to-from" stamp that came in the stamp set.
Thanks for stopping by!
