Paper Pumpkin September Halloween-Themed Review
This month’s theme is “Frights & Delights”:
The instruction leaflet is not as informative as the how-to-video on YouTube, which I prefer to watch before starting the project. I use the instruction leaflet as a guide when I get stuck on a step.
Enclosed in each monthly kit is a water-based dye ink stamp pad, this month’s color is basic gray and a photopolymer stamp set. The photopolymer stamp set has a pumpkin, bats, spiders, stars, crescent moon, “eeeek, Boo!, Spooky, To:, Frights & Delights, From:, Treats for you, and it’s Halloween”.
Enclosed is an info sheet introducing a fun new tool from Stampin UP!, it’s Take Your Pick tool. A multipurpose pickup and precision tool that simplifies meticulous tasks.
Here I have stamped the sentiment onto the tag along with the die-cut and sticker.
Here I am assembling the pumpkin die-cut onto the tag.
Here are the three bag designs, I put candles in two of the cellophane bags and candies in the third bag. I folded the tag over the top of the cellophane that I closed with the adhesive dots(glue dots would be better suited because they are easier to manipulate). I usually view the how-to video on YouTube but forgot to view and missed a step. I was supposed to adhere the silver die cuts to the back of the ghost and pumpkin to give a holographic look. There are 24 cellophane bags with three bag designs, webs, mini spiders, and orange stripes.
Verdict: This month’s Paper Pumpkin was easy to assemble, at first glance I was not impressed, but after assembling the craft it grew on me. I have an upcoming candle party in October and I may use this craft as goodie bags for my guests. I was intrigued at what they had in store for September and was hoping for spooky Halloween cards to send, but overall this is fun too. If you love crafting and sending the cards to friends and family or gifting the cards to another, this is the subscription to try out. However, this month was an exception, and there were no cards. This craft kit sends quality paper products and all the materials to make a variety of items well worth the $19.95 a month subscription cost.
