It is that time again…Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop…where we get to show you the alternates we made from this month’s Paper Pumpkin kit! And this month’s kit is truly Ah-mazing!
It is called A Little Smile for a reason…we can hand out the sweetest cards for any occasion…with tips at a restaurant, when you see a sales person stressed out, a friend needing a pick me up…whenever it seems like the right time to brighten someone else’s day! Trust me, it brings a smile to your face as well!
AND, it came with this little case to carry the cards in so that they don’t get destroyed in your purse!
So, that is what came in the kit, I used the stamps, ink, and embellishments to decorate one of Stampin’ Up!’s mini pizza boxes. I hadn’t used any of them yet and wanted to make something 3D for a change of pace. With it being summer, the beachy theme was perfect for a little treat box! I added some other ink colors to this as well…it needed a pop of color for those coral and starfish stamps! 🙂
The sparkly sand dollar is my favorite embellishment in this kit! There are also some sparkly starfish that are pretty, but if they were in a more realistic color, then they would have also been a favorite. Still using them, of course, just loving the sand dollars the most!
I also decorated the sides of the box because, well, why not?! Love the Calypso Coral for the coral! WOW, such a perfect pop of color! I also used the Sahara Sand for the sand dollars, but stamped them off before putting them on the box! That helped make them lighter and closer to realistic. Don’t ask me why I was hung up on realistic with this kit…it’s just one of my idiosyncrasies, I guess. 😛
I have to say, I am pretty pleased with the outcome and may have to make a few more of these boxes. Then I need to bake and put treats in them…hahaha, just kidding, chocolate will be way easier since baking is not a favorite past time of mine…cooking, yes, baking, not really. I’ll let my son do the baking. 😉
Below are the supplies I used and the link to my online store. Plus info on next month’s Paper Pumpkin kit…another one you Don’t want to miss!!
