ALTERNATIVES were great with this month’s kit – super cute kit, and we had a great time putting it together!  Here are our finished projects – treat bags and a card – the front was inspired from Pinterest but I added a few of my own touches and then came up with the CUTEST inside surprise – check it out below!


Here is a closeup of the front of the card with the creepy spiders hanging down but a good way to use all those itty bitty stamp pieces:


And here is the inside of the card – a pop out – and I added bats from our new Spooky Bat Punch (Item #148014 for $18.00) – love that it punches out different sizes! (The stamped sentiment is from a retired set):


Here is a side view of the popped up piece:


To do that, just cut a strip of white card stock 3/4 inch wide, then score it five times at a half an inch.  At the fifth score line, just cut it with your scissors, fold at each score line until you can form a block and put adhesive on one end to secure it.  Then add a little bit of adhesive on the two sides that are up against the card top and bottom and adhere.  Then just add your pop up piece to the front and you are done!  Adds a surprise touch to the inside – love it!

The last alternate project was a banner cased also from Dawn O, but I sponged the ghost to have it stand out, had to put a bow on the pumpkin because what is a scary pumpkin without a cute bow!, and added googly eyes to the bat.  I then added orange ribbon to the ends of the strings.  Punched out a creepy spider to hang above and I have a cute door decoration, but this would also look great on a cupboard door, across a doorway, off a mirror – just to give you some ideas.


Hope this gives you some ideas on other uses for this cute Halloween Paper Pumpkin set!

Stampin’ Hugs!
