This month's Paper Pumpkin kit Picnic Paradise is soooooo cute!!! Very timely too-makes great teacher gift for back to school-just saying!!!
It makes a ton of fun items!!!

So here we will give you some ideas on alternative uses for the materials in the kit! There are so many fun materials in this kit!!! I know you'll find some amazing ideas!!!

Here's mine:

So I made a simple little card to go with the gift set! 

Whenever I "alter" the  kits for these hops I like to try to stick to using only the materials in the kits, keeping it very CAS (Clean And Simple)! I have some beginners using these kits, & I want them to feel comfortable also! 
Clearly we have a ton of other products that you can use, but a lot of people are exclusive with the kits! Plus, those little red boxes are perfect to take on a vacation or business trip for some "quiet" time! I know I always have one with me. I throw in the block & some scissors & maybe a piece or 2 of card stock & I'm ready to craft anywhere! Card making is my "therapy", so after a busy day I love to settle down with a Paper Pumpkin kit!

All I added to this card that's not included in the kit is some                           Soft Suede card stock & one of our Note Cards & Envelopes.

Just for comparison sake, here is what the kit is designed to look like:

There are some adorable little note cards to fit into the cute little basket! The plaid paper is included-as is everything else you see here!!! Ink, adhesive, papers, baker's twine, etc., etc., etc.!!!

So just a simple little card to give with the cute basket of cards as a nice gift!
