Ho Ho Ho #2

Paper Pumpkin is Stampin' Up's monthly subscription box. October’s "Ho Ho Ho” kit included supplies for 9 cards—3 each of 3 different designs--along with matching envelopes. Kits always include an exclusive stamp set, a mini ink cube, embellishments, and adhesives.

The intended projects are always fun, but I love to find different ways to use the kits and show their versatility.

Like the previous alternatives, this project allows you to customize your card with a favorite picture. This time, the picture is also a removable ornament!

The face can be cut out from any photo, but I like to make a photo collage so that I can get multiple images. I put 6 faces onto a 4" x 6" photo, cropping the individual images so that the face took up about half the space on each of the 2" x 2" squares. I used the Project Life app to create my collage, but there are many other apps and websites available.

Here's the tutorial if you'd like to make one:


-Basic White Thick cardstock

  • 5-1/2” (W) x 8-1/2” (H), scored at 4-1/4" along the long side

-Basic White cardstock

  • 5-1/2"(W) x 3" (H)

  • 2" (W) x 2" (H) to diecut ornament back

-Cherry Cobbler cardstock

  • 1-1/2"(W) x 1-1/2" (H), or scrap to fit hat image


  • TWO 5-1/2" (W) x 1" (H)

-Sweet Sorbet Baker's Twine

  • 10”

November 10th is the last day to sign up for next month’s kit, called From the North Pole. This kit coordinates with the October kit and will make a dozen 2" x 3" tags, 4 each of 3 designs. We'll get a Cherry Cobbler mini ink cube and some Mint Macaron glitter paper! If you‘re in the U.S. and would like to subscribe to Paper Pumpkin with me, I’ll send you a handmade thank you card, and I’ll be sure to let you know when I post new ideas!
