A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop ~ Giftable Greetings

Happy Thursday everyone! I hope you are enjoying your last day in August! For those who may be new here, my name is Carolynn Sander. I am Canadian Stampin' Up! Independent Demonstrator located in Calgary, Alberta. Today's post is showcasing the Giftable Greetings August Paper Pumpkin kit! This kit is by far one of my favourites to date. You will see why when you check out today's project as well as the rest of today's blog hop. Make sure to click on the next button at the end of this post so that you get to enjoy all of the fun ideas to be shared!

This month's kit was intended to be a box of "Giftable" cards (as shown in the photo above). The original project was so awesome that it was truly hard for me to sway from the norm. But, the goal of this hop is to come up with alternate ideas. As my wheels began to turn the 1st thing that came to my mind was chocolate! Go figure! lol ... I then couldn't help but fill this box with some of my most favourite chocolates.

When it came to prettying up this box of sweet treats I had to add some gold bling to tie in with the gold foil on the chocolates I used here. The Stampin' Up! Metallic Foil Doilies as well as the Metallic Enamel Shapes were perfect for this task! You can check them out up close in the images below!

Aren't they pretty? After decorating the box of chocolates, I then wanted to create a card to go along with this sweet gift! Here's what I came up with...

My task is to now deliver some thanks before I gobble up these chocolates myself! That shouldn't be too difficult right? I also have left over Paper Pumpkin supplies to create with! Honestly ... these kits are such an amazing value! If you haven't subscribed to Paper Pumpkin yet you need to give it a shot! You won't be disappointed! I promise!

  3. Oh my goodness so yummy! The added doilies are perfect and the gold - I love your alternate ideas!

  4. What a beautiful gift! I love all of your layers on both creations.

  5. Such a yummy idea to put chocolate in the box! And who doesn't like chocolate?! Love your perfect idea to give chocolate instead of all those beautiful cards. Now you can use those cards for many more people.
