A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop - May Good Things Grow

This month is our 12th #APaperPumpkinThing Blog Hop. Our kit this month is called May Good Things Grow. It came with supplies to make 8 cards, 4 each of 2 designs, with some fancy top-flap string closure coordinating floral envelopes. The picture below shows how the cards would look if you made them according to the kit instructions:

As usual, I tried to stick closely to the Paper Pumpkin kit supplies, though I chose to add some Crumb Cake Card Stock, Powder Pink Card Stock, and a wee bit of the Myths & Magic Washi Tape  and some 2" x 8" Cello Bags for some of the items inside the box (though you might have different contents in mind, so you may not need those). Everything else, including the adhesives, came from the kit! I made a box for a birthday gift, as well as a Mother's Day card.

Oh, and just a note on the plastic test tube I used for the bath salts inside the package...those actually came from a Paper Pumpkin kit from a long time ago. But right now, you can actually still get SIXTEEN of them in either the Paper Pumpkin September 2016 Good to Eat FULL KIT or the REFILL KIT (includes consumables only), if you are registered as a Paper Pumpkin Subscriber.

I'm really not the "vintage" stamping type, but this kit made it SUPER easy! For my card, I assembled one of the string closure envelopes according to the kit directions, but I made my own card base to fit inside. And my card has a little treat in it--a packet of my favorite Tulsi Sweet Rose Tea!

The May Good Things Grow Refill Kit can now be purchased the on the PAST KITS page in my Online Store. There are sometimes full Kits available on that page, but many are just Refill Kits which include the consumables only...meaning everything but the stamp set & ink pad. By the way, you're gonna have to be a Paper Pumpkin subscriber to buy whatever's available on that PAST KITS page, so go ahead and sign up HERE to get your email address in the system first!
