This month’s theme is “Giftable Greetings”. Each month, Paper Pumpkin provides an instructional booklet, with written and visual steps.

Here I stamped the flowers and leaves with their corresponding designs. It was cumbersome to line up the flowers and leaves onto the blank die-cuts. I would like to have seen the whole flower on one photopolymer stamp set. Notice how the leaf vein stamp is too big for the blank leaf die-cut sticker.

Here I stamped the words “Thinking of You” and “With Much Sympathy” onto the oval cut-outs. There are two other cut-outs that have “Congrats” and “Thanks” already inscribed on the cut-out. It would have been nice to have “Congrats and “Thanks” included as a stamp so that I could reuse in future projects.

Here I am putting the finishing touches on the “Thanks” card. These cards were easy to assemble and little stamping was involved.

Here are the eight cards assembled: two “Congrats” cards, two “With Much Sympathy” cards, and two “Thinking of You Cards” with their envelopes.

Included in the kit were six tags that I stamped “To and From” on the front and tied with twine. These tags are meant to go with the gift box that’s included in this month’s kit. I only needed one tag for this project, but the remaining tags would be useful for future gifts. Also, there was not enough twine for all of the tags, but luckily, I had left over twine from previous projects.

Here’s the gift box with this month’s cards enclosed and I added more cards to gift to someone. Paper Pumpkin intended this month’s project to be giftable.

Verdict: This month’s Paper Pumpkin craft was beautifully curated. I love the earthy colors. I like how they included a gift box for the cards that I can gift to someone. That was a nice touch. I’m enjoying my crafting days and I look forward to their monthly crafting themes. This month’s theme had somewhat of a fall look to it but not so much that you couldn’t send on other occasions. This crafting kit is well worth the $19.95 a month subscription. Also, every month there’s a craft tutorial of the monthly kit on You Tube, which is very helpful.

What do you think of this month’s Paper Pumpkin box? Have you tried a monthly crafting kit before?
