We Create Blog Hop - Haunts & Harvests


Welcome to the OCTOBER 2021 "Haunts & Harvests" Blog Hop!!! We generally hop on the first day of every month, and this month the focus of our projects will be anything associated with Fall, Harvests, Halloween, etc. I chose to feature the September 2021 Haunts & Harvest Paper Pumpkin Kit, and I'm sharing an alternate project I made with it.
{scroll to the bottom of this post for ALL product purchase links}


I created a witch...its hat tips back as the lid to this little container. The kit had enough supplies to make 12 treat boxes, and I used the supplies for 2 treat boxes to make this container...one for the face, and one for the hat. I set aside the adhesive pieces that came in the kit, and instead opted to use the Multipurpose Liquid Glue to assemble my container. You will also need the StazOn Jet Black Ink Pad to color one of the die cut containers for the hat.


As you can see from the side angle below, the hat is hinged on the inside back of the bottom part. Although the ordering period for the Haunts & Harvest kit has passed, you could still get the Refill for the Haunts & Harvest Kit (if you have an email address signed up for Paper Pumpkin), and that would include all the pieces I used for this project.


And here's a closeup of the face...the nose was made from one of the die cut leaves in the Paper Pumpkin kit. Everything else on the face was made from bits that were cut off the two treat boxes. It was kind of fiddly cutting and adhering the tiny parts of the eyes and mouth, and I wouldn't make these for just anyone - but it actually wasn't all that hard. The Take Your Pick Tool was the key! 


Stampin' Supplies: September 2021 Haunts & Harvest Paper Pumpkin Kit or Refill, StazOn Jet Black Ink Pad, Multipurpose Liquid Glue, Mini Stampin' Dimensionals (optional - to adhere the eyes), Take Your Pick Tool, Bone Folder, Paper Snips, Grid Paper.

Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop - Wood Grain

Welcome to the OCTOBER 2021 Edition of the Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop! You'll see projects in our hop from Stampin' Up! demonstrators around the world--I'm in Colorado Springs, Colorado. (Note: I can only sell to customers in the US, so prices are in USD)

We generally hop the first Friday of each month, and our theme for today is Wood Grain! I'm featuring the September 2021 Paper Pumpkin kit, Haunts & Harvest. {you'll find all Product Purchase Links below the Blog Roll near the bottom of the post}


The September 2021 Paper Pumpkin kit came in a woodgrain box, and there was a bonus project of a wheelbarrow, with its pieces printed on the inside of the box. You can watch the YouTube video to see what that wheelbarrow assembly looks like HERE.

I made a crate with some of the pieces of that woodgrain box that were not used for the wheelbarrow. I put the front and back slats together by adhering a piece of Crumb Cake Cardstock across the bottom of this box. The brown tissue paper also came in the kit. All I added were the Round & Square Brads (black) to connect the sides of the box to the front and back.

If you'd like to make the little pumpkin treat boxes, you can purchase the Haunts & Harvest Paper Pumpkin Refill from My Online Store. You will need to have an email signed up for Paper Pumpkin in order to purchase any past kits or refills, and you can enter that email address on a Paper Pumpkin account HERE. You will get all the consumables to make the treat boxes in that Refill, but you will not get the Soft Succulent Ink Pad, or the stamp set with the leaf veins or the greetings that you see on mine. But you will get the labels, and leaf die cuts, as well as the raffia wire!

Stampin' Supplies: September 2021 Haunts & Harvest Paper Pumpkin kit, Soft Succulent Ink Pad (the same color Stampin' Spot was included in the full kit), Crumb Cake Cardstock, Round & Square Brads, Multipurpose Liquid Glue (optional). I also used a Hobby Blade/Exacto Knife with a self-healing mat to trim the pieces. {see Product Purchase Links near the bottom of the post}

A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop - Haunts & Harvests


Welcome to our SEPTEMBER 2021 #APaperPumpkinThing Blog Hop. Each month we share alternate projects using Stampin' Up!'s Paper Pumpkin Kit! We usually hop on the last Thursday of the month, though the kits were shipping kind of late for a while there...but now we're back on track!


  My alternate project this month is a little cauldron. Yes, again. Lol. I made one of these from last year's September kit, you can find that one on THIS POST. I can't help it, Stampin' Up! just gave us another die cut and kit that works so perfectly for this project! All I added to the kit contents was a single StazOn Jet Black Ink Pad, some Multipurpose Liquid Glue, and candy. I guess I also used the Take Your Pick Tool to punch some holes, so you may want to have that handy, as well.
{you'll find product purchase links beneath the Blog Roll, near the bottom of the post}


Our Paper Pumpkin kit for September was called Haunts & Harvest. It came with supplies to create 12 treat boxes, which you could fashion as pumpkins, apples, or jack-o-lanterns. And for a BONUS this month, there were outlines printed on the inside of the box, which was patterned in wood grain just like the outside, and you can cut and assemble those pieces to make a cute little wheelbarrow! Above is a picture of how the treat boxes would look if you make them according to the kit directions. Below is a video showing the assembly of the wheelbarrow. {if you are reading this blog post in your email, you will want to click on the title of the post to view it in your browser, so you can watch the video.}


I used one of the treat boxes with Pale Papaya on one side and Soft Succulent on the other. I laid the box with the Pale Papaya side up, and tapped the StazOn Jet Black Ink Pad over the whole surface to color it black. I cut off the small tabs all along the bottom, as well as the hexagon, though I set that aside to use later. I applied Multipurpose Liquid Glue to the long tab and adhered that just as I would to make the treat box. And I folded the top pieces just like the treat box, too. Then I applied Multipurpose Liquid Glue to the hexagon piece I set aside, and smooshed the top of the treat box - which is now the bottom of the cauldron - to it, to create a base. You could try using the glue dots that come in the kit, but the Multipurpose Liquid Glue does not set immediately, so it helps you to move the pieces for a moment, to give you the look you want.


I cut one of the paper covered wires from the kit in half, and used one half for the cauldron handle. The Take Your Pick Tool comes in handy to punch holes for that, or you could use a small hole punch if you have one. I unwrapped some of the bottom of the other half of the paper covered wire, laid it flat on my Grid Paper, and swiped the StazOn Jet Black Ink Pad over it...which ended up looking like broom bristles to me. I pulled the wire out of the center of that piece, but you could leave it in if you want. I would just cut off the part behind the "bristle" area, or fold that part up so the end isn't sticking out, so no one gets poked on it. I stamped the die cut leaves with the StazOn Jet Black Ink Pad, and stamped the greeting on the tag with the Soft Succulent Ink Pad (the same color as the Stampin' Spot that came in the kit), and attached those as shown. I then took the tissue the kit was packed in, and cut that in half, then folded that half so I had 6 equal square-ish pieces (meaning I'd have 12 total from the whole sheet), and cut them apart. Then I tucked one of those pieces into the cauldron, and put the candy in on top of that.


Stampin' Supplies: September 2021 Haunts & Harvest Paper Pumpkin Kit, Soft Succulent Ink Pad (ink spot is included in the kit), StazOn Jet Black Ink Pad, Mini Glue Dots (included in kit), Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive, Take Your Pick Tool, Bone Folder (optional), Paper Snips, Simply Shammy (to clean photopolymer stamps), Grid Paper.
