A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop — Winter Gifts Holiday Banner

Hello Stampers and Papercrafters! and, welcome to our monthly A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop!!   My name is Lori Mueller and I'm part of a team of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from all over the world that have joined together to share alternative projects using supplies from the November Paper Pumpkin kit.PPHop-HeaderGraphicThis month's kit (Winter Gifts) is filled with supplies to create 20 oversized gift tags (5 each of 4 different designs.  And, boy, are they super cute!

Every month, the kits include enough supplies to create the designed projects. And, that is what I primarily focus on using when creating my alternate project to share with you.  With the exception of not adding the ribbon tails to each tag, I followed the instructions to create the tags. 


To make them into a banner, I popped each tag up on an Early Espresso Nested Stitched die.  I used the largest die in the set.  I loved the designed tags in the kit that I thought it would be super easy to create this adorable banner that can be hung from an office door, adorning the front of a desk, or added to any wall as festive decoration.


When coordinating home decor, it is a pretty strong rule that you really need the arrangement done up with an odd number.  Since there were only 4 different tag designs, I had to come up with a 5th banner pennant.  So, I 'borrowed' the sentiment from the Perfectly Plaid stamp set and stamped it with Poppy Parade ink onto a Whisper White die cut from the Roses Dies (part of the Christmastime Is Here suite).  The patterned paper is from the Wrapped in Plaid designer series paper pack.  It coordinates perfectly with the kits color scheme – Shaded Spruce.

To get more inspiration for alternative ideas creating with the November Paper Pumpkin kit, make sure you visit the other A Paper Pumpkin Thing Group members' blogs to see what projects they have created to share with you.  I'll be on your heals to soak in the new ideas and inspiration.
