Paper Pumpkin Possibilities From the North Pole

Welcome to the November 2022 Paper Pumpkin Possibilities blog hop featuring alternative design ideas using the From the North Pole kit.

This kit is designed to make 12 adorable gift tags.  See the photo below of the tags.

There are optional add-on gift bags to make these into cute treat bags!

Okay so I had fun with the extra banner on this card.  It is a simple Basic White card base and layer. There is a Sweet Sorbet layer between. I stamped the candy cane image in Sweet Sorbet to make the background and to stamp the sentiment on the banner tag.

My next card is a layer of Sweet Sorbet card stock and I stamped "JOY" with Sweet Sorbet to make this background layer.  

The circle and candy cane were extras so I stamped the sentiment with Sweet Sorbet.  The adorable flat jingle bell gem was a perfect addition!

If you haven't made up your kit, here is the unboxing and assembling tutorial video:

I hope you like my quick and easy design ideas for the kit extras and putting the stamps to work!
