Valentine's Paper Pumpkin

I was SO EXCITED to get the January edition of Paper Pumpkin. I was in need of something cute for my kiddos Valentine's and boy did Paper Pumpkin deliver! We created a ton of different variations with this kit, and I can't wait to share them all with you!

First off, I made a couple per the directions. Aren't they adorable!!

And a little close-up of all the shiny beauty :)

But my daughter is only 4 and my son 1... so I didn't want to use all those clips for kids so young. In addition, my daughter and hubby had picked out some cute 'Frozen' hearts for her Valentine candy, and they didn't fit in the bags that came with. So this is what we came up with for her:

First off, I used some of the bigger cello bags I had. Then I cut the banners in half and stapled them on the bags sideways. We also added the little flags from the hearts sideways too. Elli had a blast helping me out with these :)

Then for my li'l man I had a bunch of the bags left over. I love the size of these bags- they are perfect for filling with candy (minus the hearts that my daughter had to have of course). I really hope they put these in the catalog next year!

So, back to my son's valentine. I pulled out some of the leftover DSP from my stack last year, added the matching stamp and punch, and it turned out great! I especially love the little label punch sticking out the sides of the sentiment :)

   Last, but not least, I had some extra pieces left still. So I decided to treat my class this month to a little grown-up chocolate. Yum :)

Now go and finish up your Valentine's! Flutterby again soon :)

Pin It!
