I promised you in yesterday’s post, that I would share how to create the six (yes, SIX) fresh and modern gift boxes that are included in the Stampin’ Up! Wish Big (July 2014) Paper Pumpkin Kit.  These boxes are IN ADDITION TO everything you need to create six cards (with envelopes), including stamps and a Stampin’ Spot mini ink pad.  What a WOW! kit!  So are you asking . . . is it really that quick and easy to assemble the gift boxes featured above?

I scrunched scallop circle layers(Stampin’ Up! 2 3/8″ Scallop Circle Punch and 1 3/4″ Scallop Circle Punch) and grabbed my Stampin’ Up! Fringe Scissors to create a festive bloom!  Please note additional items used on this sample are NOT included in the Wish Big Paper Pumpkin Kit.

  3. Good suggestion, Lucy. I’ll kick the idea around, probably on another project!

  4. I love your jazzed up flower…maybe a video on how to make one?? Super cute!

  5. This is really a fun pumpkin kit. I haven’t done anything with mine yet, but thank you for the wonderful ideas for both the boxes and the cards. What a wonderful blog you have.

  6. I absolutely love this Paper Pumpkin kit, so many pretty pretty things to play with. The way you accessorize with the flower blossom adds a special touch, such a cute way to step it up a notch.

  7. Oooo, pretty MsMary ,you did vary good on your boxes. And bow too !! Love it , I really love your flower , must make one ,
    Tfs , I love your videos ,
    Hugs frenchie ,

  8. Brilliant tip, Cindy. Thanks for sharing!

  9. Great video Mary and I love my Paper Pumpkin Kits. I am definitely getting the refill on this one.

    With the sticky star of the part that’s hanging over, I like to take my Embossing Buddy Bag and tap a little on the leftover sticker so it’s not sticky anymore.

  10. Thanks, Kadie (my Tucson buddy). It was such a fun challenge to time how long it takes to create the box. We should get together for the next Paper Pumpkin Kit (August) and do them together in My Stampin’ Studio!

  11. WELL WORTH the 3 minutes to watch you complete this ADORABLE gift box. LOVE the jazzed up version you made at the end. Might have to complete all 6-of my July Paper Pumpkin Boxes and have them on-hand for quick gift giving. THANKS for the video!
