Pretty Pansy Paper Pumpkin Box For Pals Blog Hop

 Welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month, the theme is “Wonderful Cards/Projects from the Garden” where our design team showcase projects from things found in a garden, such as flowers, vegetables, fruits, or even a garden scene. We really hope that you enjoy and will be inspired by them! As you hop from blog to blog, don’t forget to leave comments because we love hearing from you. Once you finish here, you will find the lineup at the end of my post to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

Don't you just love these mini paper pumpkin boxes!  So much room to design on the top or all over the box. I just had to use the Pansy Petals suite for the garden theme this month. Love all the colors and it makes me smile! 
I first spritzed the box with a spritzer filled with rubbing alcohol and 5 drops of Fresh Freesia ink. It dries real quick. I folded the box together and wrapped two prints of the Pansy Petals DSP around the box. You can slide it off to get inside the box. I then cut the white scalloped rectangle with the Scalloped Contours dies and stamped the sentiment from Pansy Patch in Blackberry Bliss ink on the right corner. The flowers plus the leaves are all cut from another print of the Pansy Petals DSP with the Pansy dies and popped on. I finished it up with the Fresh Freesia 3/8" open weave ribbon tied in a bow. 

More inspiration awaits, so use the lineup below to visit the rest of the Design Team, because the Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created! Then, please mark your calendars for our next blog hop on August 11th. Our theme will be “My Happiest Season” when our Design Team creates a project showcase projects inspired by their favorite season of the year. Until then, have fun in your craft space.
