Knowing for whom you are creating a gift makes the creating so much easier – and fun, at least for me. What it does, is put a smile on my face thinking of how the person will receive it :O) Here’s the Mini Paper Pumpkin box packaging…

Mini PP Packaging

I began by covering the Mini Paper Pumpkin box with basic Gray card stock, then a panel of Heart & Home 12 x 12 DSP (yes, this is new in the Jan-Jun 2022 Mini Catalog). I then added one of the very sweet (& NEW) Heart & Home Doilies, also in Basic Gray, adhering that with Stampin’ Seal just in the center. I stamped the floral bouquet in Basic Gray ink (from the Blessings of Home stamp set – also new in the same catalog!)and colored the image with various Watercolor Pencils: Garden Green, Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo. There is something relaxing for me in doing this :O) I then took a Blender Pen and moved some of the pencil color around, which gave it a bit of watercolor look. I used the coordinating Flowers of Home Dies (yep – new too) to die cut the bouquet. I put several min i dimensionals on the back and adhered it over the doily. I tied a pretty bow using the Glittered Organdy Ribbon in White and added it with a glue dot. For a little glam, I added three 2021-2023 In Color Jewels and the box top was done! I love this wood grain paper!

And what went in the box you ask? Well, note cards of course :O) And the very top one coordinates with the box.

Blessings of Home Note Card.1

As you can clearly see, I used the same design idea as the Mini PP Box top on a Basic White Note card. The difference is in the stamping and coloring of the floral bouquet. I stamped the image (from Blessings of Home stamp set) in Misty Moonlight ink. I then colored the two larger flowers with a sponge dauber tapped in the Misty Moonlight ink pad and gently pulled the color from the inside of the flower to the outside of the flower. Because the image is small, I then used the Watercolor Pencils for the small flowers (Balmy Blue), Daffodil Delight pencil for the flower centers and Garden Green pencil for the leaves. The ribbon comes from the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack using the Misty Moonlight and Silver, and was attached with a glue dot. For the sentiment, I taped off a portion of the stamp from the Blessings of Home stamp set inked it, removed the tape and stamped the Thank You in Basic Gray ink. Done.

I added a bit of tissue to the inside of the Mini PP box, and slipped in the card. I had two other note cards previously posted, that I slipped in as well.

All of these note cards were created with the Blessings of Home stamp set, coordinating Flowers of Home Dies (10% off when purchased as a bundle Jan 4, 2022!) and the Heart & Home 12 x 12 DSP (also available Jan 4, 2022) Love how this set came together and it’s already been gifted :O)
