Love You A Lot Paper Pumpkin

The stamp set in the April Paper Pumpkin kit is mostly sentiments with a focus on Mother's/Father's Day. The gift tag card holders are a perfect accompaniment to gift giving for these occasions.

With gift giving in mind I altered the tags to make it easier to add a little something.

The yellow tag is 3/8 in. deep and the last one is a door hanger.

Turn your Paper Pumpkin kit box inside out and adhere wrapping paper to the red side.

I used 2 of the card fronts to make a belly band for the box and added ribbon to hold the pocket tag with the gift card.

This full-size card used a half of a card base and one of the mats from the kit.
 Lift the flap of this card and read the Birthday message.

 Inside this card is a holder for a gift card. The belly band holds it closed.

Fold one of the die-cut bows in half and cut the ends to add shaped tails to the plain bows. I used my discontinued heart punch, but the Hearts Collection framelits works too.

Last, I stapled a stack of papers to a piece of cardboard and slipped it into the pocket tag. Add some magnet strips to the back to attach it to your fridge.
