Here we are all waiting for the July Paper Pumpkin to ship to us and I’m posting an alternate project from the June Paper Pumpkin kit. It arrived just before I left for holidays in June and it took another week after I returned before I had a chance to sit down and create with it.
While I did create several alternate projects, I will share just this one with you. The other designs I only share with my Paper Pumpkin subscribers! It’s a bonus for them as a thank you for subscribing through me 🙂
The first glance of the watermelon skin patterned envelopes and I knew that I wanted to die cut a Wood Crate from it! In addition to that the Watermelon Seed tissue paper was perfect to line the inside of the wood crate. It makes me think of a picnic!
To complete the crate I added a half moon for the word sweet and attached it with one of those fun Lemon Lime Twist clothes pins.
So far simple, right? Well how about creating a couple cute cards to sit inside the crate? I took one of the note cards in the kit and cut in half. They were 4-7/8″ long so I had to make sure to cut 1/16″ smaller than 2.5″. I cut one of the watercolour wash banners in half to allow me a card front for each card and stamped my sentiments on them.
The mini notes now fit perfectly inside the crate! Do you agree that the colours in this kit are so fresh and summery? I love how these items just pop and grab your attention.
