Paper Pumpkin Subscription Box Review – June 2017

Paper Pumpkin - One In A Melon - June 2017 Box

Paper Pumpkin is a monthly paper crafting subscription box from Stampin’ Up! They send everything you need for a creative paper project right to your door.

This month was the unveiling of their new logo. I like how their new logo is centered on the box instead of off to the side of the box like before. A nice touch.

This month’s theme is “One In A Melon”. The project for this month was fairly easy and straight forward. The kit consisted of 2 projects: the 6 cards and 4 mini bags that resembled watermelons, hence the theme’s name. My only complaint is with the ink pad, specifically, the melon mambo one. It was not as saturated with ink as the emerald envy pad. Also, this month there’s a sketch of a ruler on the bottom of the instruction booklet for measuring the twine for the project.

Here are some of the cards. There were 6 cards total in the kit. They were super easy – I stamped the envelopes and assembled the watercolor square, leaf stickers, and banner together and placed everything on top of the card.

Here’s the finished product for the bags. The kit included 4 bags. The bag had a few steps as well. I assembled the bag and attached the watercolor banner and tag together and clipped them to the front of the bag.

Verdict: This month’s Paper Pumpkin monthly kit was not as exciting for me as others. The bags are adorable and I specifically like the detail of the bag resembling a watermelon and the tissue paper resembling the seeds from the watermelon. The cards were okay, but I need to find an occasion to send them out. Overall, an enjoyable afternoon spent crafting. This kit is worth the $19.95 monthly price. Also, every month there’s a craft tutorial of the monthly kit on YYouTube which is very helpful.

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

  1. Love this kinda gift wrapping…darling projects…

  2. Love the cheerful, vibrant colors! And the watermelon design is always fun for the summer. There’s not really enough bags provided to distribute for a party, but maybe you could use them as centerpieces dropping a little vase of flowers or balloons in the bag.

    • Good idea! Thanks Ava.
