This month’s theme is “Positively Picturesque”.

Paper Pumpkin July 2017 DIY Subscription Box

Here are the four card designs. There were 8 cards total in the kit.

There was a lot of versatile to the 4 card designs each one having their own unique style. The assembly was straight forward with little stamping involved. The cards had cut out-outs of circles and hearts with wood cut pieces to add a bit of flare to the cards. The use of washi tape was used more in this monthly kit than others, which I loved. As usual, one of the ink pads was dry and didn’t make for a bright, clear, crisp stamp. It seems that one ink pad is always dry compared to the other. Also, the photopolymer stamp set had a handful of stamps that I didn’t use.

Verdict: This month’s Paper Pumpkin was fairly easy and the designs are cute and useful for all occasion for mailing to my friends and family. The designs of the cards remind me of Spring and I was surprised that there wasn’t a seasonal theme for this month (i.e. summer). Overall, a fun, creative project worth the $19.95 monthly fee. I think it would be nice to have extra cardstock and envelopes in the boxes so I can make additional crafts with the extra supplies left over each month. 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 box before?

  1. You can get a big bag of cardstock & envelopes at Michaels, even cheaper with their coupon 👍
