Paper Pumpkin – Something Good To Eat – September 2016 Kit Review and Giveaway
The neighborhood I live in is one in which we all know each other, and are friendly. Last year during the holidays I gave each of my neighbors a gift that I thought they might enjoy. The gifts ranged from mugs to pet gifts. The best part was that everyone loved it, and it inspired another neighbor who made all the neighbors fleece blankets.
In an effort to become best neighbor ever, I wanted to do something special for people for the upcoming Halloween holiday since we do not get trick or treaters. I had not decided the exact way I was going to deliver this treat, but as I often say, timing is everything.
When I received the September 2016 Paper Pumpkin kit “Something Good To Eat” happens to be the perfect way for me to deliver a small amount of treats to many neighbors.
The products featured in this post were provided to me free of charge courtesy of Paper Pumpkin/Stampin’ Up, but this in no way will influence the review to follow and all opinions are my own.
This month is a kit that makes 16 adorable vials with tags and is titled “Something Good To Eat“.
Each month I look forward to the 10 by 6.5 red box, to see what new project I will be embarking on. Each month the kit comes complete with the items you need to create the project for the month. Included in this months box was the following:
- Something Good To Eat Photopolymer Stamp Set
- Old Olive Classic Stampin’ Spot Ink
- 16 plastic food-safe tubes
- 3 sheets of adhesive banners
- 3 sheets of printed die-cuts labels
- 5 yards of Linen Thread
- 35 Adhesive Dots
Included with each box are written instructions with full-color photos but also there is an instructional video available (Online Instructions) to help you complete the project each month.
This months stamp included stamps that are geared towards the greetings and floral pattern’s. The set includes 4 word/phrase stamps and then 4 stamps that are more on the floral end. These 8 clear polymer stamps stick well on a clear block and are easy to use with the enclosed tags. Included was a stamp pad in Old Olive, which is a dark green color that is similar to a green olive.
The general concept behind this months kit is that when completed you have 16 vials that are not only decorated but also able to be stuffed with small treats. I tried two different treats in these – the first was our cats favorite dairy treats and the second were M&M’s (which fit about 10 of them when stacked in the tube).
Paper Pumpkin by Stampin’ Up boxes are available for $19.95/month, $59.00/3 months, $114.00/6 months and $215.00/12 months and the shipping is included in the cost. The 6-month is a total savings of about $6, about a $1 a month savings and the 12-month is total savings of about $24, about a $2 a month savings thus ends up totaling the amount of receiving one kit free.
Buy one get one (BOGO) on Paper Pumpkin August 11 – October 10.
