September 2015 Stampin' Up! My Paper Pumpkin Wickedly Sweet Treat Kit - Alternate Treat Bag Idea


I am love, love, loving my Paper Pumpkin Kit this month!  This month's kit was designed to create the treat bags in the photo above.  I loved the design and wanted to use them for my Son to give treats to his friends in his toddler preschool class.  My only problem was that the applesauce pouches I wanted to use as the treat inside didn't quite fit.  So, I played around a bit and I'm loving the alternate design that I came up with below!


How cute is that?!?  I love the kraft fringe!  And, because the bag is open on top, you have a lot more possibilities with the treats you can include!


In the side view above, you can see that I just added the fringe layers to the front of the bag.  The top layer of fringe goes all the way around because I just folded over the top of the bags included in the kit.  So easy and so cute!  And, just about everything I used was included in this month's kit.  I really just added in the washi tape from the Happy Haunting washi tape set.  I have been loving those washi tapes recently!


I made another video so you can see how quick and easy these little treat bags are!  I promise it is one of my shorter videos :)

September 2015 Stampin' Up! My Paper Pumpkin Wickedly Sweet Treat Kit - Another Alternate Card Idea


I have a quick card to share with you today!  I have been loving this month's My Paper Pumpkin kit!  The stamp set is awesome!  To see the full reveal of the kit along with the first card I made, go to my post HERE.


I loved the color combination of Cajun Craze, Blackberry Bliss and Mossy Meadow so much that I used it again on this card.  I stuck with the same background stamping and just switched up my tag.


Above you can see the tag I made with Mossy Meadow Card Stock and the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch to layer with the tags that came in this month's kit.  I used the thick baker's twine that came in the kit to make the bow and I also wrapped it around the tag three times and adhered it in the back using tape to hold it in place.


Here you can see the little bit of depth achieved by adhering the tag to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals.  I just love those things!  They gave this simple card a little pop :)

September 2015 Stampin Up! My Paper Pumpkin Wickedly Sweet Treat Kit Reveal and Alternate Card Idea

It is time for another My Paper Pumpkin Reveal!!!
Are you ready to see the September 2015 Wickedly Sweet Treat Kit?!?

I loved these little treat bags so much that it was hard for me to think outside the box, or in this case bag :)  The stamp set included in this month's kit has so many possibilities! 



For this card I paired the Cajun Craze with Blackberry Bliss and Mossy Meadow.  I used the stamps from the kit to create this fun, fall background.



I was determined to use that cute little paper straw from the kit on a card and I love how it turned out!  I cut the paper straw in half and used it to make two cards.


Here you can see the dimension that the card has.  It almost certainly would require extra postage if mailed, but it is not too bulky.

I made a kit reveal video this month where I also show you how I created the card above.
Watch the video below from My Paper Pumpkin to see how to use the kit as designed.
