Thursday Tutorial - Picnic Paradise July 2018 Paper Pumpkin Alternatives (Plus A Free Tutorial!)

Good Morning Everyone! My Thursday Tutorial is a Teacher Gift Set created with the Stampin' Up! July 2018 Paper Pumpkin Kit. Called Picnic Paradise, it has everything you need to create 12 (3" x 3") Cards with Envelopes and 4 Paper Picnic Baskets. Although this kit was already pretty and easy to assemble, I decided to step it up by turning the 3" x 3" Note Card into a Full Size Card, and adding sentiments from the Picked For You stamp set. Next, I used the Hand Delivered stamp set to add the Apples and Books image to the Picnic Basket Tag and then, I filled the basket with Strawberry Starburst Candy. Finally, my last project was Mini Hand Sanitizers Gift Boxes. I hope these alternatives give you more bang for your bucks and Look Below for the Mini Hand Sanitizer Gift Box Tutorial
