Paper Pumpkin: Full of Possibilities

You've heard it from me before: I love Paper Pumpkin. The projects the kits make are fantastic - always - but what I extra love are the supplies in the box that can be used to make something unintended. Since I'm a fun fold card fanatic, each month I challenge myself to make a fun fold card from some of the items in the kit. From the last few kits, here is what we've made (I and my Paper Pumpkin subscribers).



I have written a couple of blog posts featuring these cards. The post about the first two can be found here, including a link to a video tutorial. The butterfly shutter card how-to can be found here.


When September's kit dropped in my mailbox, I got right at it. It was a little more difficult, since there were not as many pieces in the kit as there normally are. The creative juices needed a little help, so I ended up using a number of extra supplies for this sweet pop-up card.











Here are the items from September's kit that we used to create this card.



The extra paper supplies we used are as follows:


Thick Basic White cardstock:

-5 1/2" x 8 1/2"


Basic White cardstock:

-2" x 5 1/2"

-2" x 3 1/4"


Pale Papaya cardstock:

-2 1/4" x 5 1/2"

-scrap large enough for two Medium Daisy punches

-3 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored at 1/2", 2 3/4", and 5" for the inside pop-up mechanism


Hand-penned Designer Series Paper:

-4 1/8" x 5 1/4"
