Paper Pumpkin – Jan Edition – Be Mine Valentine! I just love the look on the kids faces, and usually the teacher’s faces, when I send Henry into school with some handmade treat! Sometimes they are in a big hurry to get to the treat inside, but once in a while, they pause and actually look at the wrapping.
For those of you who have Paper Pumpkin subscriptions like I do… here is the kit that we received mid-January! Aren’t these pillow box treats just so cute? And I love that they coordinated with the Animal Expedition bundle in the annual catalog.
How do you share love with your significant other and/or your own BFF’s? Do you fancy chocolates, a little spa treatment or maybe the sip of the bubbly! How about for our kiddo’s and their school friends? These pillow treat boxes are probably a perfect little project that won’t take you very long at all to put together.
Here I have included Stampin’ Up! video reveal of the package. I really couldn’t do it better myself. Watch the video now to discover how easy it is to make the kit projects.
Now a peek at the coordinating suite of products you can use to make even more great projects.

So, what do you think?
Would you like to start receiving a fun paper crafting kit in the mail each month? I did it when Stampin’ Up! first launched this program… and it was fun, but not challenging enough for me personally. But as the program has continued, it has gotten much better with project ideas and I am really happy with the quality of the products they are offering.
You can subscribe to the service, and pay as you go. Stop when you wish, or skip a month. Or you can purchase a 3-month, 6-month, or 12-month subscription. All the details can be found here on the Paper Pumpkin Offering Page. Sign up to give it a try, and remember, just because the kit comes with planned projects, it doesn’t mean you can’t create “outside” of the box! It’s your project, make it your way.
