Happy Saturday.  I hope you had a great Friday night. I sure did!  Last night was my monthly Paper Pumpkin Party and we did some fun Altered Paper Pumpkin projects that I want to share with you!

Below are the finished projects right from the kit.   This month’s Kit is super cute.  The Cards open at a slight angle and the White Stamped card is an insert.  Not only are these cute cards, they also have a Bonus feature. Because of how they open you can also just use them as a Gift Card holder!

 

When I create the Altered Paper Pumpkin Projects – I use a combination of the items in that month’s kit and a few items that I add for my customers.

Last night we made 4 items – A cute Valentine’s treat that would be perfect for children to use as favors for their friends, a treat box/mini gift card set, and a greeting card.
