Paper Pumpkin April


Usually I’m on the ball with my Paper Pumpkin kit.  This month I’m thrilled to say that I at least got it done before the May kit releases.  That’s pretty good I suppose.

I did end up making the wreath by the instructions.  I wasn’t so sure about it, but when it was done I was very happy with it.  It looks great as a embellishment for a gift for my mom for Mothers Day.  I bet she hangs it in her craft room.DSCN5387 (600x800)

Then…what to do with the extras.  I wasn’t feeling the creative juices past the little cactus idea that is all over Pinterest, so I tried a few of those.  Actually really cute.

I was only going to do two, but I stumbled upon this sentiment from the Garden in Bloom stamp set and I couldn’t resist doing another.  How perfect is that!

Then I tried really hard to come up with something creative with those green strips of bumps……I really wanted to do something with a monkey swinging from a vine but I couldn’t get it right.  However, I ended up finding some punch art animals that I had put together several years ago and were just waiting for the right time.  I love these.  (not too creative with the green strip……I didn’t want to show up the great punch art!)

I’m still grinning that I actually had a stamp that said “Hip Hip Hooray”.  I knew I kept that retired birthday set (from many many catalogs ago) on hand for something!

Hope you enjoy these.
