A Paper Pumpkin Thing: October 2017 Kit

Hey Everybody! Welcome to this month's A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop where you'll find tons of fantastic alternative ides for the October 2017 Paper Pumpkin Kit!

The kit has pieces to make ten shaker cards and is so AWESOME! I usually like to use the pieces from the kits to make unique creations but this month's kit is so fantastic that I had a hard time cutting it up to make this card.  

I started with one of the background pieces that was originally intended to be placed inside the shaker and I fussy cut the trees out of the background. I layered the trees over the window of the shaker so that the trees would be the focal point. Check out the cool sequins. There are three kinds in the kit: Pool Party, Gold Stars, and iridescent white.

One of the fun things about this kit are the sentiment banners that layer perfectly over the gold banners. It's such an easy way to get a classy look (and all of the work is done for you). It also came with precut acetate and circles of foam adhesive to make the shaker cards really easy to put together.

Did you know that this kit coordinates with next month's kit? If it's anything like this month's kit you won't want to miss out on it. You can sign up for Paper Pumpkin HERE!

  1. Great idea to add something else to the back and move the trees to the front!

  2. Great idea to move the trees outside the shaker! Gives the card an entirely different look.

  3. Bringing the trees to the front really brings life to your version of the shaker card. Nice job!

  4. So cute...I had to f#@&y cut the trees, too ;-) Thanks for sharing!
