Today is about revamping the July My Paper Pumpkin kit..... 
I mean I'm ALL ABOUT S T R E T C H I N G my  Stampin'Up products so why not My Paper Pumpkin Kits also.

All I did was ADD a few extra products to make this 
fabulous Coordinating Birthday card and Gift Box !

1. Old Olive card stock
     2. Old Olive Baker's Twine
                            3. Heart punch from Itty Bitty Accents pack

Like My Color choices ? it fits the
 Fun Color Challenge at Connie and Mary this week


There are so many fun elements to choose from when making this card,.......remember everything is already die cut and ready to go in the Paper Pumpkin kits. I especially like the die cut letters that I can position anywhere I like. Yeah for the adhesive backing already on them. The silver foil stars are part of the kit also. I just added the Old Olive stars using the Heart Punch. The sentiment and tiny stars are part of the Polymer stamps that comes with the kit. Inked in Blackberry Bliss, also included in the kit ( small ink spot ).

I think my favorite part of today's project is the adorable striped Gift Box. These cute Blackberry Bliss striped boxes are all ready die cut and EASY to assemble, seriously there are 6 printed boxes in the kit. Talk about a quick gift idea.

Let me tell you how EASY this tag was. The tag was punched out of a sheet of 12 tags. The blue Heart was pulled from 1 of the 2 sheets of hearts and stars. The sentiment is part of the Polymer stamp set included....hmmmm see how it's curved?

TIP.....did you know you can bend your polymer sentiments !??

1 Old Olive star was punched as above. The Silver Foil star was pulled from the sheet of stars. The 5/8" White Satin ribbon was cut from the roll of 6 yards included in the kit. And last is the ADD ON bow using Old Olive Baker's Twine.

I was dying to pump up the cuteness factor on my box, look out she has a punch in her hand. O.k. well we know where the Old Olive hearts are coming from but what about those blue ones. You've heard of scraps ??? Well the left over frame from the die cut blue Hearts and Stars were just sitting there doing nothing. Bingo..punch more Itty Bitty Punch Pack Hearts. Maybe the best part is that they already have a peel off sticky back....now that's a real time saver since I put them all the way around the box. I have to say I fell in Love with the coordinated look.
