Christmas & My Paper Pumpkin

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!
Happy stamping.
