Thursday ended up being a Paper Pumpkin day, although it definitely didn’t start out that way! I thought it was going to be a regular old Thursday until Luca woke up with a 102 degree temperature. He ended up staying home from school, I stayed home from work, and since he slept most of the day, I got to catch up on using my September and October kits!
The first thing I made were some whoopie pies for a bake sale this weekend. I put them in cellophane bags and had twist ties that I could have used to keep them closed, but I wanted to dress them up a bit! So I used the Jack O’ Lanterns and black twine from September’s Paper Pumpkin kit! Check out what the full September kit makes. It includes supplies for 8 of each treat bag shown below, for a total of 24 treat bags:
Isn’t it cute? So perfect for Halloween treats!
The second kit I used was the October kit called Friends of a Feather. Take a look at what the full kit makes:
The kit makes eight cards total, four of the larger, brown cards that I made on Thursday, and four note card sized ones, which I have not finished yet. I really love the color combo in this kit! Such pretty colors for Fall!
I put together my four cards as directed in the kit, but switched up a couple little things. First, I used a Thank You sentiment from the Thankful Thoughts stamp set instead of the stamps that came in the kit. I also pulled the metallic thread out of the baker’s twine before using it. Here’s a close up the finished product, with its matching, lined envelope:
Here’s all four cards together:
