Banner Surprise Paper Pumpkin Kit

I had some fun yesterday putting together the June 2016 Banner Surprise Paper Pumpkin kit... well, more like taking it apart I guess. You'll see why below. ;)

Above is the only banner I created with the kit - my business name - that I'm proudly displaying under some past Paper Pumpkin samples. The kit is meant to make six banners with cards, but I opted not to make those (I'm not big on banners). Below you'll find some of the samples I've created so far. If you head over to my Facebook Page - - you'll find a video I posted explaining everything.

All the samples you'll see only use pieces from the kit, other than some notecards and envelopes, no other special tools or punches were used. I wanted to focus on just the kit, especially since some of my subscribers don't have a lot of tools.

The left card above most closely resembles the cards you're suppose to make (but I only used one cello pennant) and then the card on the right has a special stamped background (using bubble wrap!!) and the negative of the gold foil letters. Seriously, go check out the video!

If you're willing to cut up one card and one envelope from the kit, you can make these five cards (with the notecards & envelopes) - really, go check out the video for a how-to. ;) 

These last two cards I think are really out-of-the-box thinking. On the left one, I 'painted' the flower using my Stampin' Spots (oops, I did use a punch to add some gold foil dots to the center of the flower) and I did a happy dance when I thought up the right one. A shaker card using only pieces from the kit. SERIOUSLY, go check out the video to see how I did it - 

I hope you enjoyed these extra projects - I'll be making a few more this week I think. I always have so much fun turning the project kits into something completely different!
