Celebrate Paper Pumpkin Style

Did you make all of the pinwheels from your July kit? If not, why not use that cute paper for some festive cards? I am sure I sound like a broken record but the possibilities are endless!

Cut those pinwheels into triangles and you have a fun background for your card. This is note card size at 5"x3.5" and the triangles fit just about perfect. It could not have worked out any better. This was quick and easy to put together and that is what the Paper Pumpkin kit is all about. The kit comes with instructions for the projects included in the kit, but if you have some extra time or are feeling creative, go ahead and think outside the box and change it up!

Show us what you are creating over at the My Pumpkin Challenge. Link up your website or photo gallery page. We love to see what everyone is making. You inspire us. Thanks for stopping by!

My Pumpkin Challenge: Celebrate Week #3

Have you had a chance to check out what Paper Pumpkin is all about? If you have, I bet you are having fun creating and sharing your goodies. If not, what are you waiting for? How about a special invitation, from me! Haha, ok, click here to see what it is all about. Need more convincing, check out the My Pumpkin Challenge for more inspiration!

This month the theme is "Celebrate." I know when I celebrate any occasion there is usually candy involved. What I am saying is that I celebrate on a daily basis! hehe.

Here is my sample for this week.

This goodie bag is full of Mega M&M's. I had no idea they existed until I went to M&M's World in Las Vegas. I must live under a rock!

I transformed the flat cellophane bag from the kit into a flat bottom bag to hold the Mega M&M's by using two glue dots. (I will have to show you a picture of that at another time because taking photos of the clear bag did not work very well.) Then I folded over the top of the cellophane bag and that held the star paper in place. I also made a mini pinwheel by cutting off about 3/4" on all four sides of the pinwheel from the kit.

I love that the Paper Pumpkin varies and we never know what we are going to get. I love the anticipation and giddiness I get when I see the kit in my mail box. Each kit comes with sample ideas, if those are not your flavor, think outside the box and have fun with it!

Share your creations at the My Pumpkin Challenge! Every creation is beautiful.
