This month's Paper Pumpkin is adorable! It's great just the way it was intended and would make perfect Valentines for school. For fun, I like to show variations of my Paper Pumpkins and I've made a few, so stay tuned. :)

You're going to see lots with this little guy. He's one of my favorites! I can't get enough of him, so I've been making several little treats with him. This project is made with the square pillow box thinlit. I sealed the sides and left the top open. He's stamped on the back of the box too, with the sentiment "hugs" inside his tummy. He's so dang cute!! :)

Not sure what else I'll do with this stamp set, but when I saw the little truck in the Sale-a-bration catalog I wanted to make one. Of course mine had to be for Valentine's Day. It was time consuming but fun to make. Now I'm hoping I'll find lots of greats ideas on Pinterest for other projects I can make with this set. ;)

The Sealed With Love stamp set in the new Stampin' Up! Occasions catalog is so darn cute! It has so many fun stamps in it, which makes my mind race with so many fun ideas. It's a must to put the hugs & kisses stamp with the lips, don't you think? :)

Yay, onto Valentine projects!! :) I'm starting with a simple treat bag. It has a card tucked inside so a note can be written on one side and a treat attached to the other, a twofer. :)

I'm trying to build my birthday stash for the year. So, I used the Two Tags Bigz Die to create a birthday box. I made sure to use colors versatile enough for a guy or girl. The candle is a strip of designer paper and the flame is the wing from the bird builder punch.

Welcome 2017! As a Paper Pumpkin subscriber I was given an updated 2017 calendar template for my "One Great Year" Paper Pumpkin. I decided to try something a little different with it and made this small matchbook calendar. Now I have a great little calendar to carry with me!

Gift cards are fun to receive but not much fun to give if they aren't presented in a cute way. For this gift card I used my Sizzix pocket die to create the bottom half of my gift card holder. The top is a 3 X 3 piece of cardstock I folded in half and glued on each side. When you slide the top into the pocket it makes a little present with a bow on top! Happy Holidays!

What do you think of this little Rudolph bag? He's made out of a kraft bag. I used my fringe scissors along the top then tucked a treat inside before tying it off and curling the fringes with a bone folder. Eyes and a shiny red nose finish him off. He's so cute!

I searched Pinterest for things to make with a 6x6 sheet of designer paper. This is one of the ideas I found. I used the same concept on another project I'll be showing soon. Gotta Love Pinterest! :)

When I found this foil wrapped chocolate at Target I snatched it right up. It didn't take much to turn it into an adorable little gift. I used a stamp from the Tin of Tags set and the Holly Berry Builder Punch to embellish it. I love the results! :)

You know how much I looove die cuts! :) Well the Cheerful Tags Framelits Dies are no exception. They are so much fun to create! By adding a fun tag I turned my small bag of candy into a sweet Christmas gift.

The November Paper Pumpkin is one of my favorite card kits! Of course I didn't turn it into a card, but no worries I definitely will. I created a wrap for a candle then tucked it inside a takeout box. Now all I have to do is tie it closed with pretty ribbon.

I found the instructions for this box on pootles.co.uk. Thank you Sam for your creativity and willingness to share! :) Its made with the envelope punch board. I think it makes the perfect Christmas wrap and the bow builder punch made the perfect size bow for the top.

Remember the Festive Flurry Ornament Kit? I assembled mine a little different and attached it to a Polka Dot Tag a Bag gift bag. I altered the bag a bit too. I'm excited to put a gift inside and give it for Christmas!

As I looked through the Stampin' Up! holiday catalog the first stamp set I had to have was the Tin of Tags set. I knew exactly what I was going to make with the "warm wishes and mistletoe kisses" sentiment. Hopefully you have the mitten punch because it's a perfect little addition.

I made this with a 4 1/2 x 6 1/2 piece of designer paper. It's scored on the long side at 1, 1 1/2, 2, 4, 4 1/2, 5. The short side is scored at 3/4. Cut the 6 small score lines just up to the 3/4 score line. Remove all the 3/4 pieces except for the 2" center piece. This will be the bottom flap to seal it closed. Decorate as desired! :)

Here's a festive way to give cash for Christmas. I made it with the scalloped tag topper punch, small oval punch, owl builder punch, bird builder punch and blossom petals builder punch. He's a little too small for a gift card but you can alter it to accommodate one.
