Thank you to everyone who is participating in the My Pumpkin Challenge. It is wonderful to see all the creative ideas everyone has! Since today is November 1st we begin a new challenge. This month the Challenge is "Make a Gift." I used the stamps that came in the October kit to decorate my gift.
I got the idea to make a mini album from Maggie Peterson. It is such a great idea and you can change it up for any occasion. I decided to make my album a little note holder. I used wide ruled notebook to decorate my gift. Most of us have notebook paper lying around right? I placed notepaper inside each envelope sleeve so you can pull it out and write notes. You can also stash receipts and coupons in the pockets!
I also decorated the outside of the gift with notebook paper. On the front I stamped "jots & thoughts" from the Try It kit. I also used some of the buttons and white bakers twine leftover from past kits to tie the front closed. The three envelopes I used were also from the My Paper Pumpkin kits! It was quick and easy to make. It would be a nice gift for a teacher or your friends. It is nice and compact and fits nicely in a purse and it is cute to be displayed on a desk too. I hope you give this a try! Be sure to check out the My Pumpkin Challenge blog to see what Jessica made today!
