VIDEO: January 2017 Paper Pumpkin Kit, Alternate Projects & Giveaway


I made this quick and easy Valentine’s Day gift set from the January 2017 “Adoring Arrows” Paper Pumpkin kit. I always make an alternate project from the kit. This one was super fun to play with. I did some heat embossing (my fav) and made a matching Candy Heart window bag/box.

See my video tutorial below for instructions.
