“Noel” November 2013 Paper Pumpkin Craft Kit from Stampin’ Up!


Nov 2013, Noel, Paper Pumkin, iPhone Case

The November Paper Pumpkin kit was the ABSOLUTE BEST kit since I’ve joined Paper Pumpkin back in August!!!  I loved this kit and made one of the cards exactly as featured on the packaging, it’s even cuter in real life than in the photo….but of course….I wanted to see what else could be done with the kit’s contents so I made several more projects!  My favorite project was the cover for my iPhone! I love to change the design on my iPhone to match the holidays! I’ve had lots of people ask me where I got my fabulous iPhone case!!! It’s so much fun to say, “I made it myself.”

Then I made three more projects! I loved how the gift bag turned out, I’ve added a close-up photo below so you can see the details. The darling little box was made using a template that I found on Martha Inchley’s blog, Inch of Creativity.  The card in this photo was one I saw on Pinterest by Amy O’Neill.

Paper Pumpkin, Gift Bag, Close-upIn the close-up photo of the gift bag you can see where I used the Northern Flurry embossing folder from Stampin’ Up! to emboss both the brown paper lunch sack and the “Noel” layer. I added a Real Red Glimmer Brad from Stampin’ Up! to the top to hang the star garlands from and I used glue dots on the backs of a few stars so they would hang where I wanted them to. I then layered the “Noel” over the card front, using Stampin’ Dimensionals to give it more dimension, and used my paper snips to cut the red & white striped card front to match the angle on the “Noel” layer. It made a fabulous looking gift.

  1. Just curious how you emboss the brown paper bag? Do you stick the whole thing in the embossing folder or do you slide the folder down just on the top layer?

    • Hi Tara,

      Sorry that I haven’t responded sooner. Today (June 5th) is the first time I’ve logged onto my blog since late April. I was on vacation for two weeks then when I got home both my husband and mother had major medical issues that I’ve been dealing with. Anyway, I place the entire brown paper bag in the embossing folder, that way both the front and back of the bag look pretty! I love how great brown paper bags look when they are embossed!!!

      Peace, Love and Joy,
