This month’s theme is “Sprinkled With Love”.

Paper Pumpkin Craft and DIY Subscription Box - May 2017

This month was all about donuts, a cute idea since donuts are becoming more popular especially with donut walls. There are three different doughnut card designs that I stamped with the various sayings, such as “May Your Day Be Sprinkled With Love”, Love You A Hole Bunch” and “Donut Forget You Are The Best”, to name a few. A pretty straight forward craft, the kit had everything needed for easy assembly. I had six frosting sheets left over and I made nine cards since they included nine printed craft envelopes but I will use the extra frosting sheets and attach to cardstock or adhere to a gift.

Verdict: This month’s Paper Pumpkin monthly kit was less time consuming than last month and easy. The envelopes are cute but not made to be addressed and mailed. I would have to put them in a different envelope. The adhesive-backed pearls were tiny and didn’t stick well, and as usual, the tiny, adhesive dots are difficult to use. However, the foam dimensional stickers worked well. This is worth $19.95 but the quality of the paper isn’t as good as past boxes. I appreciate how each month’s craft is more creative and not just your typical greeting card. Also, every month there is a craft tutorial of the monthly kit on YouTube, which is very helpful.

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

  1. Sent my son the “may your day be sprinkled it’s love” card with a little mailable gift to wish him Luck on college finals. He texted me right away to tell me that the card was pretty cool and loved getting something in the mail. In the day of instant gratification and texts, it’s refreshing to get old school cards in the mail. I personally love receiving personal hand made cards as well as making them! @paperpumpkin has some pretty fun kits!
