Pile o’ Christmas Cheer

It always starts with someone in mind. A person may need cheering up or wishing birthday greetings. This time, I had my senior living communities to design for. What would I gift them for a little Christmas cheer when I visit in December?

The package needs to be easily opened and can be reusable. I let people know they can enjoy the treat inside, refill it and re-gift it. It needs to be festive and fun and easy to assemble since I have many to make.

So I started gathering piles of supplies I had on hand, designed the favor and then ordered the supplies needed to make about 300. Each resident and staff will receive one. They were a big hit with the first communities I visited yesterday.

If we cross paths in December, I’ll gift you one too. In case we don’t, here is a Youtube video showing how to assemble plus a few other ideas at the end of the video.

 

Happy Holidays!

My front step provides the perfect scene for photos. Newly decorated with finds from Gap Hill and around our house. One detail that will not be added is my stick snowpeeps. That will wait until we get the first snow and then it is usually stuck in the snowbank. It blows in with the snow, haha!

Sunny Thanks

I needed a quick party favor so I pulled out my Paper Pumpkin bits box. Can you tell which parts are leftover bits?

The sunflower (edited from the original snowflower typing error, must have snow on my mind!) tags are leftovers from the Something Good to Eat kit available at my online store here. The stamp is from the Layered Leaves kit which is sold out. I have an extra Layered Leaves stamp set if you would like one.

The 2×6 cello bags are currently sold in the annual catalog. I cut them down to fit 2 colored coordinated tootsie rolls. Gotta have candy that matches the packaging! 🙂

Paper Pumpkin kits are a monthly program that delivers paper crafting kits to your snail mailbox with almost everything you need to create the projects inside (you may have to add your own scissors). FAQs and sign up is through this link.

Kits are affordably giftable at $20 plus tax per month. Order subscriptions to bring the price down $1 or $2 per month based on the number of months you order. Subscription orders are placed through my online store here. Scroll down to Paper Pumpkin on the left side after reaching my online store to find subscription pricing. After purchasing subscriptions, Paper Pumpkin will email you with the promo code so you can add it to your Paper Pumpkin account.

I hope you like Paper Pumpkin as much as I do!

Toil and Trouble, Boil and Bubble

Jim’s sister Sue created this pin worthy tablescape. It screams Something Wicked This Way Comes. Notice the test tubes? These are left overs from her Something Good to Eat Paper Pumpkin kit from last year. Full kits, refill kits and test tubes are available through my online store here.

She created her own labels that say spider venom, unicorn fur, toad pee, raven’s blood and zombie blood. Fun!

I’ll be handing out candy tonight. I plan to create some owloween treat bags like I shared in this post for my stamping neighbors. So unmask yourself so I can give you the chocolate!

Happy Halloween!

Paper Pumpkin visits with Ronald McDonald

I asked my fellow demonstrators to bring Paper Pumpkin kits to our all demonstrator meeting on Saturday. This stack plus pop tabs was delivered to the Madison Ronald McDonald House today. Before I left, there was a note on the stack to please take one.

Guests of the house are welcome to take the kits with them to the hospital or back home with them since the kits are all inclusive and transportable. We hope that the kits provide a diversion from the medical issues they are facing and allow the kids and parents to be creative without a lot of effort or prior paper crafting experience.

I am happy to order kits if you would like to donate as well. You are also welcome to divert a month to my snail address. I’ll add an acrylic block if the kit was purchased through me and deliver the kit to the house. Thanks for your Paper Pumpkin donations!
