A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop - You Are My Anchor

This month is our 13th #APaperPumpkinThing Blog Hop. Our kit this month is called You Are My Anchor. It came with supplies to make 20 cards, 4 each of 5 designs - the cards are 3"x3" and there are coordinating envelopes included for each card. There are also 4 boxes that slide open, so you can fill each box with 5 cards (that's one of each design), plus an envelope for each card. Here are my alternates:

The picture below shows how the kit would look if you made everything according to the kit instructions:

As usual, I tried to stick closely to the Paper Pumpkin kit supplies. For my alternate projects I added Sahara Sand Card Stock to create standard card sized bases, plus a little bit of Pool Party Card Stock for an accent layer. If you're going to mail your standard sized cards, you'll definitely want to grab a package of Whisper White Medium Envelopes.

As for the boxes, I decorated them a wee bit differently, and used them to hold some treats instead of cards! I bought one pack each of the Coconut OCHO bars, and the Peanut Butter OCHO bars, and 2 (4-packs) of the Haribo Roulette candies. That gave me exactly enough treats to split out evenly in my 4 boxes...with two candy bar bites left over. They aren't really left over. They are gone. Lol.
