December Paper Pumpkin- Beary Comforting Alternatives

I love Paper Pumpkin Kits! They help you create so many beautiful projects. Keep reading to see my alternative to December 2020’s Paper Pumpkin Kit, Beary Comforting and to see a preview of January’s kit.

The cards per the instructions provided in the kit are super cute! I love the little critters. However, I love that I can use supplies I already have to create even cuter alternatives.

For the first card, I die cut a circle from one of the kits dsp’s using the Layering Circles dies. I replaced the heart the raccoon is holding with a present and added some Gilded Gems to the sentiment. I’m going to use this one as a birthday card.

For the second card, I used the die cut circle from the 1st card as a background for my bear. I gave him some flowers and added a couple Gold Glitter Enamel Dots to jazz it up.

This card is my favorite. I used the adorable smiling koalas to hold my sentiment. I layered some Gold Trim from the Forever Greenery Combo pack behind them and added a Gilded Gem.

I hope you liked my alternate projects today! Some of the products I used are listed below.
