March Paper Pumpkin

I love getting my Paper Pumpkin in the mail every month.
It arrives,
I do a little happy dance,
a few tee hee's and ooh's and ahh's,
and then...
I set it aside and
forget to do it!

I don't know why, as I really do love it. It is so nice to create, without having to do the creative thinking.

Anyways... so here I am AGAIN, only a few days before the next on is to ship, sharing my paper pumpkin.

March's Paper Pumpkin was a card kit. You received enough materials to create four "Congrats" cards and four "Thank You" cards + gold lined envelopes! Fun!

But you know me... I like to play and create a whole new project for you. So... why not create some coordinating gift boxes to go with those cards! I just can't resist making cute little packages. They are too much fun!

My box is made from a full card base (8.5" X 5.5") - open and unfolded.

- On the 5.5" card length: score at 1.25", 2.5", 3.75" and 5".

- On the 8.5" card length: score at 1.25" and 7.25"

- Stamp as desired.

- Fold all score lines.

- On both 5.5" card lengths: cut score lines up to the perpendicular score line (1.25" in), to create box flaps

- Cut and discard the tiny end flaps.

- Place sticky strip on the small 0.5" flap and attach to the other side.

- Fold in flaps and stick down with sticky strip. Fill box and repeat to close the other end.

- Attach wood accessories and glitter dots.

Here is a visual for you!

To make the bow:

- Cut two - 0.5" strips from an envelope liner.

- Glue one strip together end to end, to form a loop.

- Glue down in the centre to form an "8"

- Attach the second strip to the back, wrap around the centre of the bow,  and glue it down in the back. Trim excess.
