3D Thursday: Patriotic Mini Paper Pumpkin Box

Twila Davis is our designer this week for 3D Thursday! She has created this sweet Fourth of July themed hanging decor, using one of the NEW Mini Paper Pumpkin Boxes and various ribbons and trims! Such a fun, easy idea!

The Mini Paper Pumpkin Boxes are a NEW item in this year’s Annual Catalog. They come in a pack of 10 for $7.50. They have a nice matte finish, so you can decorate them with paper and embellishments OR you can easily apply ink. Twila did both for this project!

Grateful for Those Who Fought and Died for our Freedom

Today in the US, we celebrate Memorial Day, which recognizes those who fought and died for the freedoms we are so blessed to have here.  I come from a family that has many military servicemen and women, both past and present.  I also have many friends who are either former service members, or are currently serving.  Friend or family, I am so grateful for them all, as well as their service.  I am even more grateful that those I love have all come home safely.  I realize not everyone who has loved ones who serve can say that.

My card today was actually made last year, but I have never shared it here, so I decided to share it today.  It is a very simple design, made in red, white, and blue, with the Loyal & True stamp set.  The only added embellishments are a few silver Metallic Enamel Shapes.


Measurements for this card are as follows:

Night of Navy cardstock card base:  5-1/2 x 8-1/2 inches (scored at 4-1/4 inches and folded in half)

Real Red middle layer:  3-3/4 x 5 inches

Whisper White top layer:  3-5/8 x 4-7/8 inches


I hope that wherever you are and whatever you do, that you have a great day today!  If you are in the US, please take a moment to remember why we celebrate today! Thank you for stopping by!
