One of the things I enjoy the most about Paper Pumpkin is taking the ‘left overs’ and creating something new. There are always some fun things left over after putting the kit together. This month was no exception. Earlier this week, I showed you what I made with this month’s Picnic Paradise kit. (See that post here.) Yesterday, I looked at my pile of goodies and was quickly inspired.

And, would you believe it, I still have a few things left!

Design Notes Picnic Paradise – Remix:

To create both the card and the tags, I really used very little other materials. I used Whisper White card stock for both. The flower on the card was created using the Daisy Punch. I just took all of my left over blue plaid tissue and punched out about 8 flowers. I punch one daisy out from Whisper White card stock then glued the others, one on top of another. Next, I placed a Glitter Enamel Dot in the middle. The jar that the flower is in is one of the little tags that were included in the kit, turned upside down. The stem was a piece of left over basket material.Picnic Paradise Paper Pumpkin kit, July, 2018, Stampin' Up!,

The tags were even easier! The Scalloped Tag Topper Punch seems to instantly make any 2″ piece of card stock into a tag. I stamped “For You” and glued down some of the left over fruit. They needed just a bit more color so I added some Blueberry Bushel Ribbon to the top.
