PP Blog Hop - Box of Sunshine

Welcome to the Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop! The beauty of the Paper Pumpkin kit is that you can follow the directions provided in the kit to make the projects as they were designed, or use the supplies as a starting point and let your creativity run wild.
On this hop we will be sharing lots of ideas with you on how to use the
June Paper Pumpkin kit: "Box of Sunshine".

These are the original cards:

Inspired by Stampin’ Up!’s CEO Sara Douglass, this June Paper Pumpkin Box of Sunshine kit is here to help you #sharesunshine. When you’ve made all the cards, fill the box with yellow goodies, add the included adhesive label, address it to someone special, and brighten their life with a little sunshine!

  • Kit contains supplies for 8 cards and envelopes (2 cards of 4 designs)
    • Card size: 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" (10.8 x 14 cm)
    • Envelope size: 4-1/2" x 5-3/4" (11.4 x 14.6 cm)
Coordinating Colors: Basic Black, Bumblebee, Crushed Curry, Poppy Parade, Shaded Spruce, White, and Gold

Box of Sunshine Information: This kit includes extra pieces and stickers (including a sticker label) to help you create cards AND a Box of Sunshine filled with treats and goodies to send to a friend. (Treats not included.)

For my alternate projects I made a box and a bag using two of the card bases.  I want to share with lots of people so this gives me extra ways to share sunshine!

For the box I used the card base with both Poppy Parade and Crushed Curry.  This is what it looks like close up and with the treats that I put inside.  I used the supplies that came with the kit and added some ribbon that I coloured to match with my Poppy Parade Stampin' Blends.

For the bag I used the card base that was mostly Crushed Curry with a little Poppy Parade swirled throughout.  I used the supplies from the kit and added a piece of ribbon (from the Forever Greenery combo pack) that I coloured with my Mango Melody and Poppy Parade Stampin' Blends.

The extra supplies that I used for my projects are listed below.

    1. This was my measurements!
      Using the card base that has not been folded, place long edge at top of scoring board.
      Score at 3/4"/3-7/8"/4-5/8"/7-3/4".
      Turn and on short edge score at 3/4" and 4-3/4".
      Fold and burnish all score lines.
      Cut the tabs on both 3/4" sides up to score lines.
      Make box bottom by adhering tabs inside on back and front both sides.
      Box top has only front tabs to adhere.
      Please let me know how you make out Nicole!
