Paper Pumpkin is a monthly craft subscription box. It’s a fully designed project kit that can be fun for any level crafter. Each kit includes stamps, ink, and paper – everything ready to go. They’ll surprise you with fun projects like cards, gift packaging, home décor, and more. For those who are just starting out, the project has step-by-step instructions on how to create the project just the way it is shown; but for those who want more of a creative experience, they have the opportunity to take the components and create their own unique project.
Cost: $19.95/month (US) | $26.95/month (Canada) – Shipping included

Info for new subscribers: Every month you'll receive a unique stamp set with an ink spot (that won't repeat a colour in a 12-month period). In addition, your first kit includes a free clear stamping block that you'll use every month.
December's theme is "Flora & Flutter" and includes supplies for 8 cards and 8 envelopes. They include written instructions but I prefer to watch the video instructions HERE.
• 8 card bases (4 of each color)
• 8 envelopes
• 8 die-cut elements
• 1 sheet die-cut banners
• 8 Glimmer Paper pieces
• 1 yd. 5/8" Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon
• 3 yds. baker’s twine
• 100 adhesive dots
• 64 adhesive strips
Paper Pumpkin cards have all the supplies pre-cut for you which makes it so easy to do the project. This month, the Lemon Lime Twist die-cut elements were cut backwards but they included the corrected version in the box. These cards consisted of layering the different elements to create dimension and contrast. You had to use a lot of adhesive strips and I found them a bit difficult to work with but in the end, the cards turned out fine. You could stamp your cards with a few different greetings which give you multiple occasions to use the cards.
The cards in this kit are pretty and colourful but I think it's a bit too early for Springtime cards. I tend to feel bored with all the cardmaking kits and would like to see something new and different from Paper Pumpkin. With that said, I do enjoy making the cards and I always put to use some of my past kits to create variations of the cards. Another perk of being a Paper Pumpkin subscriber is you also get access to a selection of past kits and refills that you can order at Stampin' Up!
