Paper Pumpkin Subscription Review – November 2016
This month’s box is winter blue and a departure from their signature red box. There’s a winter scene on the sides of the box and the verbiage, “wishes for a beautiful season” and “may your days be merry and bright” on the flap of the box.
This box was sent to us at no cost for review. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

Once, again I enlisted my friend Ava to join me in this craft. This has become our monthly get together. These cards are perfect for the upcoming holidays and I’m pleased with the wintery scene. There are 3 laser cut-outs that I layered one on top of another and adhered to the vellum and placed on the front of the card. They came out nicely. Adhering the sequins was cumbersome because they were so tiny and was a pain to peel the backing off. I ended up using tacky glue to adhere the sequins and that worked just as well.
I overlooked a step; instead of using the mini dimensional dots, I used the adhesive dots. But I actually think the cards look better without the dimension and slide into their envelopes easier. Overall, this was an easy project. This month’s project included twine again, which didn’t enhance the card so I didn’t use it.
Verdict: This month’s Paper Pumpkin project is appropriate for the upcoming holidays. I appreciate how Paper Pumpkin uses good quality cardstock and envelopes for their projects. The cards turned out super cute and I love the “winter wonderland” theme. The monthly kits are $19.95 a month and you are receiving good quality envelopes and cards with the added embellishments and accessories. I think that with everything included, this is an awesome deal. Also, the stamps and extra twine can be used for future projects.
