Time must be flying, because it’s Paper Pumpkin time again already! The November 2021 Paper Pumpkin kit – called Gifts Galore – is an adorable one designed to make holiday gift packaging. The treat bags are absolutely precious if used as intended, but I love that the elements for this kit are so easy to use for cards or scrapbook pages if desired. Keep reading and I’ll share several alternative ideas for how to use your kit!
First let me share the video I created with you.
November 2021 Paper Pumpkin Video Overview
Watch along here to see all about this kit and an explanation of my alternative ideas, or keep reading for photos and more information.
Let’s start by taking a look at what came in the November Paper Pumpkin kit.
This month’s kit included the paper supplies to make nine adorable holiday-themed gift bags, along with a cute stamp set, flirty flamingo ink spot, and adhesives.
One of my favorite things about the Paper Pumpkin kit program is that it helps you build up inks and supplies over time for a very reasonable cost. I’m excited to add a Flirty Flamingo ink spot to my collection, as well as this month’s stamps.
Next let’s look at the kit projects as they were designed to be completed, and then we’ll talk about other ways to use the materials!
Here you can see the cute gift bags that I completed according to the kit instructions. Aren’t these designs cute? These bags are the perfect size to hold treats, candy, cookies, small notebooks or toys, lotion and pampering supplies, or other gifts. They could be used as lanterns to hold battery operated candles, just as a decoration for your home or holiday table, or of course as gifts.
Now it’s time for my favorite part…alternative ideas for other projects you can create!
