This was another of the Paper Pumpkin kits (June 2013) I knew I needed to add “more umph!” to it, but my creative brain just wasn’t working with it for the longest time. Several weeks ago as I was sorting through my unmade Paper Pumpkin kit stash (just an aside – I do make many of the Paper Pumpkin kits the week they come in, but sometimes time gets away from me and I forget them. Do you do that too?).
I looked on Pinterest for ideas on what to do differently with this kit and fell in love with the “hexagon” shape idea from Debbie Henderson’s blog. I added a bow on the outside and a flower, hexagons and the sentiment on the inside. You can see the flower and several of the hexagons peaking through the punch hexagon areas. It took me quite a few try to figure out how to get the hexagon shape (I should have remembered my math training on using a protractor to create a perfect hexagon. Hmmm, maybe I’m dating myself again. Does anyone know what a protractor is? Do you have one? I still do!). I was pleased with the final look and so were my class attendees!
