A Paper Pumpkin Thing - Box of Sunshine

Welcome to the A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop! I’m super-excited to be joining this awesome group of stampers for the first time this month. Welcome to my blog and thank you so much for visiting today! 
We are a group of Stampin’ Up!® demonstrators who love to share alternative project ideas for Paper Pumpkin, the monthly One Stop Box from Stampin’ Up! Today we are sharing ideas from the June 2020 Paper Pumpkin - Box of Sunshine! This kit is truly one of my favorites. 
My alternative projects feature a fun fold card and a treat box which can hold a variety of little goodies to spread some sunshine to the recipient. 
The particular fun/fancy fold card is called either a pop-up card or a shelf card, depending on where you look. What I love about this particular style of card is that is has that “Wow-Factor” but still folds flat to mail. 
For this card, I used the following components in the Paper Pumpkin Box: 
  • Die cut lemons and leaves
  • Polka dot sticker strip
  • Adhesive backed sequins
  • Box of Sunshine stamp set
  • Basic Black Ink Spot 
  • Stampin Dimensionals
I added in a few other items, like cardstock, designer series paper, a punch, an embossing folder and some additional adhesive to show how you can step-up your Paper Pumpkin just a little more. I have a list of the supplies I used at the end of this post.

I created the coordinating gift box around one of the polka-dot stickers from the Paper Pumpkin Box. The box itself comes together really easily and has an open top, which would work for a variety of different treats. For this box, I filled a 6” x 8” Cello Bag with some Werther’s Original candies. I filled one side of the bag and then folded the other side over to make it a little smaller to fit into the box, then tied it closed with some ribbon. You can fit about 16-20 pieces of candy in the bag to fit comfortably in the box.
In addition to the kit components, I added some cardstock, ribbon and the cello bag. Everything else was in the Paper Pumpkin box! 

Again, you can get the measurements for this box and the coordinating fun fold card by clicking HERE for the free PDF. 
Lastly, since I mentioned using additional cardstock, here are my cards from the kit with a couple additional layers. I had a fun crafting day with a friend over the weekend and put these together while we were chatting away. What I love about Paper Pumpkin is that you can create your projects YOUR way. Paper Pumpkin is truly for every stamper, whether you are a beginner or more of an avid stamper.
