Sweet Springtime: A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop



Hi! I’m Vy with Crafting Daily Dose. Welcome to this month’s A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop, featuring alternatives for the February 2024 Sweet Springtime kit.


This kit included supplies for 6 cards, 3 each of 2 designs, along with 3 gift boxes. Kits always come with an exclusive stamp set, a mini ink cube, embellishments, and adhesives. As of today, refills are still available for this kit.


I cut up one of the treat boxes to add special touches to the cards. A single treat box can be used for 2 pop-up cards and up to 4 of the slimline cards.


For this first project, I used 2 of the floral panels from the treat box and scored 1/2" tabs on the sides in order to adhere them to the card to create a pop-up. Leaving the white flaps off would make the card easier to close, but I love how they look, so I kept them and trimmed the taller one down.


I added a pop-up support for the bunny and chick die cut using a small 5" (W) x 3/4" (H) strip of cardstock, folded into fourths along the long side. To decorate the box, I cut off the bottom section of the flower wreath to form an arch, creased it in half, and glued it to the inside of the card. I used my bone folder to curl the bunny and chick die cut and adhered it to the left half of the support. And finally, I cut out grass blades from the frame die cut and adhered it to the inside of the box.



Because there's a lot going on inside, I kept the front simple. The printed card base is already so pretty! I only added a sentiment label and a few embellishments. This card was made using the original cardbase from the kit, but if you have enough extra cardstock, you can start with your own cardbase, build the pop-up inside, and just add this panel to the front. The extra weight from more cardstock will actually help make the card lie flatter!



 

Don't worry--the gingham part of the treat box did not go to waste! I adhered one of the panels to the front of the slimline card for a quick alternative project. I then tied a 10" length of twine through the holes and tacked down the flap with a Dinensional foam sticker.
