October Paper Pumpkin kit

I received my Paper Pumpkin kit for October and it is so cute. They put a card making kit together and it's right on trend with the unique shaker aspect. It was so fun to make! The pictures really don't do it justice. The colors are rich and the sequins are so pretty.

This was the card I made using the kit as it was intended. I did add a decorative paper strip to the top and orange twine instead of the green that comes with the kit. The other elements are directly from the kit.

I had to come up with some other ideas on other ways to use the kit because I knew I wouldn't have use for so many cards.  I keep a stash of boxes and such for gift giving and I found some plastic boxes I thought would work perfectly with the kit. I wrapped a box with decorative paper and embellished with the kit. I used the leaf cut outs and lined them with coordinating Fall papers. I really love how it turned out.

One thing stood out about the kit while I was making the card and that was how many leaf cut outs will be left after making cards or other projects. I used one leaf to embellish the top of the box but then I was trying to think of other ways to use them up. I immediately thought about placecards for Thanksgiving and I cut the little cards out, but then it turned into a little hello card instead. 
I still have placecards in mind, so stay tuned because I will be working on those soon. 

Thanks for stopping by!
