Paper Pumpkin #redboxchallenge!



Stampin' Up! Paper Pumpkin is hosting a "Red Box Challenge"!  

Take the Red Box Challenge! Happy New Year,everyone! The Paper Pumpkin team is especially excited for 2018, and we have two great reasons: 
(1) This year’s kits are amazing; 
(2) We’ve decided to kick off 2018 with a super fun giveaway. We ’re calling it
the Red Box Challenge, and it’s easy to get in on the fun!

Simply put together a WOW project using an unused, past kit - or buy a past kit that you’ve had your eye on. Then share an image of your project on Facebook or Instagram with #redboxchallenge hash-tag and you will be entered into a random drawing to win a Paper Pumpkin kit. 


Now, we think all of our kits are wonderful and amazing--but our random drawing winners will receive the upcoming Paper Pumpkin fifth anniversary March kit. Think: Gorgeous and collectible. Everyone is going to want one. AND the winners will get it in their mailbox before anyone else . Sound fun? Check out the terms and conditions at the bottom of my post,then start crafting your Red Box Challenge project today!

Note: Some project ideas will be selected from the entries and featured in Paper Pumpkin’s monthly newsletter and on our Facebook and Pinterest pages. Past alternative Paper Pumpkin projects you’ve created and posted on social media are not eligible for this contest.

And without further adieu, this is the project I created for the #redboxchallenge :



I decided to alter the Paper Pumpkin Box from the past kit from November 2017 which was called Back In Plaid. I had two kits for November so I broke into my second box for this project. If you follow me regularly, you know that I had also altered the box from the coordinating October Kit. These boxes are just too pretty to part with. Here are some more photo's so you can see all of the detail:


And these are the additional Stampin' Up! products I used:
  • Calypso Coral Cardstock
  • Lemon Lime Twist 1/2" Finely Woven Ribbon
  • Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper cut with the Flourish Thinlits Dies
  • Watercolor Wings Stamp Set
  • Calypso Coral Ink
  • Lemon Lime Twist Ink
  • Handle
So yes, you read that correctly. I added a carrying handle at the top of the box for some interest. The handle is screwed to the inside flap of the box with two screws once I poked two holes through the lid. Isn't that neat?


The ribbon was glued around all four sides of the box using Tear & Tape, over the Calypso Coral Cardstock and I also added a triple bow on top of the box. The Glimmer Paper die-cut leaves are so pretty in person as well as the beautiful stamped and die-cut butterfly:




Don't forget as a subscriber, you can still purchase past kits and enter the #redboxchallenge :
