Image may contain: text

Welcome to the Paper Pumpkin Pop Up Blog Hop!

We are all fans of this monthly crafting kit and want to share with you our enthusiasm for this box of fun and creativity. The beauty of the Paper Pumpkin kit is that you can follow the directions provided in the kit and make the projects as they were designed or use the supplies as a starting point and let your creativity run wild. On this hop we will be sharing lots of ideas with you on how to use this January Paper Pumpkin kit: Be Mine Valentine.

The kit makes 24 super cute Valentine's Treat Pillow boxes and it also coordinates with the Animal Outing bundle in the Stampin' Up! annual catalog. This is my first hop and I would like to share with you the cute project I decided to make. I chose to spotlight the Animal Expedition Designer Series paper and the Animal Outing Stamp set.  Here's two of the projects I made.
