September Paper Pumpkin

The September Paper Pumpkin is beautiful!!!  I love that I can do the Paper Pumpkin anywhere.  I did this kit while hanging with my Dad while my Mom was out.  He has dementia so he can't be by himself.  I brought my Paper Pumpkin kit and sat at the kitchen table and crafted away while Dad slept. 

I'll take you through the steps I followed. First is to open the kit. It has everything you need except paper snips. I did use a few of my clear blocks and my snail to move things along a little faster.

Look at all the goodness in the kit! The supplies give you everything you need to make 8 packages and 8 cards.

First I punched out all the die cuts from the sheets. They were easy to just pull apart from the sheets.

Next I did my stamping. I stamped the leaf image on the punched out leaves.

I stamped all the tags for the cards. Don't you love the gold accent on the bottom. I had a few clear blocks so I was able to mount each stamp on a separate block. This is not necessary if you don't have additional blocks.

I stamped the tags for the packages. I realized that it was easier to stamp and then punch them out :)

Stamping completed, now time to assemble.
