July 2023 Paper Pumpkin Alternatives

As usual, the alternatives are a little behind, but I want to share the three July 2023 Paper Pumpkin Alternatives I made with you today.

July 2023 Paper Pumpkin Alternatives

This was such a great kit and I had a lot of fun with it. From a little redesigning, to a decorative box, to a full-blown pop up card, it’s all here!

I stuck with the original colors in this kit, and they are;

The first alternative

The first alternative is just a simple re-arrangement of the elements in the kit.

It’s a really easy design that you can put together in minutes.

The second alternative

The second alternative, is a lot more challenging. The outside is seemingly normal…

but the inside is a pop-up surprise! I placed strategic score lines and folds in the elements to make them stand out.

Everything used to make this one is in the kit too, with the exception of a Crumb Cake card base.

The last alternative

The last alternative is another simple one. I decorated one of the Envelope Treat Boxes from the annual catalog.

The inside of this one has a nice surprise too! It makes a great little box to gift something as simple as a package of Tic Tacs.
