Download a Cutting Template for the Box from the September 2023 Paper Pumpkin Kit


1- See the above Box Cutting Template and cut the largest scrap piece to 4” x 5 ¼”. Before adding it to the cardbase, cut out the center with a 1” border. This will give you a piece that is 2” x 3 ¼” (save for card #6) See video for instructions.

Then add it to the Crumb Cake Cardbase.

2- Cut a small sliver from the edges of the envelope so it open to the full pattern. Cut off the bottom at 2 ½” to create a piece that is about 2 ½” x 3 5/8”. Add this to the center of the cardbase over the opening with dimensionals.

3- Stamp your greeting in a coordinating color. I used Copper Clay. Add to the bottom right area with dimensionals.

4- Add some Gold Sequins near the greeting.


I have also created a video walking you through each step:
