PPP Blog Hop: Joy to the World


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: Joy to the World


This month's kit made 8 cards, 4 each of 2 designs. Here are the cards as designed:

If you follow me at all, you know I love to make boxes out of the Paper Pumpkin card bases. This month's worked perfectly! So I had to do it!! 

Here is my alternate project, a cute little box! I used the included stamps for the flowers, as the diecut flowers were too large for the box. I colored them with our Stampin' Blends. I think they look great! I used other elements of the kit, like the "sweater" embossed paper, the beautiful gold "love" and the cherry cobbler twine.  I added the Sea Foam Green paper for the sentiment, and the cobbler colored jewels. 

I lined the inside with some of the envelope, and Cherry Cobbler cardstock. 

Glad you could join us, and hope you have been inspired to get your kit out and create.  Click on the pumpkin below and hop on over to Deb's blog to see what fun she has created to share with you!


It would be awesome if you leave a comment on our projects along the way!!

  1. Love your box! Would love the scoring dimensions!

    1. The most important thing is do not fold on the pre-scored line. Leaving card flat, score at 1" on all 4 sides. Then on the 8.5 side, score at 3 3/4" and 4 3/4" too.

  2. Such a cute project - thank you for hopping with us!
