Playing with Paper Pumpkin-June 2014

I am LOVING this month’s Paper Pumpkin Kit! If you aren’t familiar with our Paper Pumpkin kits, click here for details ūüôā

Here’s a look at everything that was included in the kit for June. Plenty of supplies to create 24 pinwheels, sticks, and treat bags too!

My kiddos helped assemble some of the pinwheels, but I wanted to come up with a coordinating card as well. Here’s my final product:

card and pinwheelIn case you are wondering, YES, I am going to walk you through the steps ūüôā

1) I started with a card sketch I found on Pinterest. I find it helpful to have a guide when I’m creating a card from scratch…kinda like having a map when you set out on a road trip!

sketch 2-22

2)The square pieces of designer series paper were already pre-cut to create the pinwheels, so I just followed the cut lines to create 4 triangles

step 1

3) Take the triangles and line up the long side with the 1″ mark on your paper trimmer to cut them into 1″ strips

step 2 full

4) Once you have these strips, use your Hexagon Punch to quickly punch your pennant flags



5) The last step is to trim off the top to make it a flat edge. So here’s a quick look at the 1″ strip we started with, and how the finished pennant looks.

¬†Then I just flipped the card sketch on it’s side and started to assemble. The stars and “celebrate” stamped images were part of the kit (woohoo!!!) and since all of the stamp sets are exclusive to the Paper Pumpkin Kits, you cannot purchase them anywhere else. I also used my white chalk marker to add a white center to each of the stamped stars. I tried rhinestone jewels, but felt they were a little big for the image.

I¬†used this card as my inspiration, and changed it up a bit: prominent¬†star, double hearts, and I also added a few “stars” to the blue section with my chalkboard marker.
