Hello friends!  I hope you are doing amazing on this fun-filled Saturday.  Today I am hopping with some Crafty Collaborators along the Paper Pumpkin Blog Hop as we share lots of inspiration related to the November 2021 Gifts Galore Paper Pumpkin Kit.  There are several of us hopping today - you will find the list to follow along towards the bottom of my blog post - so sit back and enjoy your favorite coffee, tea, water or smoothie as we share some handmade projects with you!

Today's Project

This kit is so amazing and I cannot wait to complete all the treat packages to share with others this holiday season.  I had fun being inspired by the adorable snowman today...

Gifts Galore Paper Pumpkin Kit - November 2021

Project Details

The Stockings Dies came in handy for creating the background for the Snowman Season snowman that was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento ink onto Basic White Cardstock.  This was done twice along with die-cutting two additional shapes from Pool Party Cardstock.  The two different colored shapes were adhered together with Multipurpose Liquid Glue to create the front and back panels.  The snowman was colored with the coordinating colors from the Paper Pumpkin Gifts Galore Kit - Flirty Flamingo, Poppy Parade, Old Olive and Pool Party.

The base was cut and scored from Basic White Thick Cardstock using my trusty ol' Paper Trimmer and Paper Snips.

Tear & Tape Adhesive was applied to the tabs to adhere the project base together.   Tear & Tape was then applied to the largest sides of the base to adhere the snowman panels.  Such a sweet size to contain smaller treats or even taller treats (which I would suggest filling with tissue paper or shredded paper to help keep them steady.

I am participating in a Holiday Bazaar next weekend and will more than likely make more of this project to share there!  So stay tuned for pictures that I'll be sharing of that event in December.
