Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop: Winter Woods

Welcome to the monthly Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop. We love Paper Pumpkin and love to share our enthusiasm for this monthly box of fun and creativity with you. The Paper Pumpkin kit is designed so you can follow the instructions provided in the kit to make the projects, or use the supplies as a starting point to let your creativity run wild (as we have!) Hop along with us, as we will share alternate ideas on how we used the October Paper Pumpkin Kit: Winter Woods.

This month's kit was beautiful cards, evergreens, birch, cardinals and snowflakes...what a winning combo. Here are the finished cards as designed:

I could have made an alternate card, but I have been a little obsessed lately with making explosion boxes. They are fun and easy to make. So, I thought, why not, and I challenged myself to make an explosion box with this month's kit. I love how it turned out:

Here is what it looks like open:

I had to add the Poppy Parade card stock to make the actual box base and lid, but everything else was from the kit. I used the inside of the envelopes for the wood sides, and cut the birch trees down to fit the front. I punched the sentiment from the leftover paper of the birch trees. The little red cardinals and snowflake sequins finished it off perfectly!

We appreciate you hopping with us!  Click on the pumpkin below and hop on over to Elizabeth's blog to see what fun alternate project she has come up with to share with you!

Leave us comments, along the way, and let us know what you think of our projects. 

Until next time...Happy Craftin'!
