Layers Of Gratitude Alternate Project Idea
 for February 2015 Paper Pumpkin Kit
I love getting Paper Pumpkin each month. I know, I gush about it all the time! But really!!
I am a busy mom. I have a bajillion and one things to do, and the same 24 hours everyone gets to do them in. I need a break once in a while!! Crafting really does wonders for me! It lowers my stress, it releases that creative streak in me, and.it.is.fun!! Paper Pumpkin is everything I need in a box. I can sit down for 30 minutes, drink hot coffee or tea, listen to something besides Caillou or Adventure Time, and make the project. And they are cool projects!
I can think about the pieces and dream up NEW ways to use the supplies. Or different ways to use the supplies. Or how I can use the supplies with some of my other craft supplies... its a great creative exercise, whichever way you want to go. If you are NOT creative, try it. If you ARE creative, you should try it too!! It is a great place to start for anyone who wants to get crafty with no stress and no (ok -only a little ;-) mess!

And on to the star of this show!!

Alternate Paper Pumpkin Kit Project Idea
February 2015 - Layers of Gratitude
I am sharing a different project you can make with just the supplies in this months kit, Layers of Gratitude. I used the frame for the letters and wrapped it around the little box. I cut the long fold out card into 4 little note cards & stamped them with the 4 designs. You can tuck them in a gift bag or a bunch of flowers; or just leave them, sitting pretty, out for someone to find. The box is stamped (before I added the thanks frame) and wrapped with the little string included in the kit. I trimmed the top flap down a bit to tuck into the bottom flap, so you don't need the string to tie it closed. This would be a cute gift for someone, everyone can use a Thank You note at some point!

On the inside, I added the Thank you stamp, but you could just as easily leave them blank and add what you REALLY want to say: I love you, you're the best, I'm sorry... whatever the moment calls for. I'm excited to use this GREAT set of stamps!!

Great stamps set for quick or small thank you notes.

There are two things I love about this alternate project. It uses the frame around the letters, so trash to treasure there, folks! AND! If you already made your 8 Thanks fold out cards, and used them for team thank you's or to present a gift card with great style, THATS OK!!
(You can see more of those ideas in my post HERE)

- one of the simplest yet most powerful things -
Gratitude
Use those crazy good stamps, and make a set of note cards to use any old time!! Find a little envelope and stick that letter frame onto it.
Its not as fancy and giftable as my project ;-) but still as useful!!
Tuck the little notes in your purse or glove-box or desk, and practice RAK ((random acts of kindness)) for people as you go through your week. "Thanks for that excellent service. Thanks for your kind words when xyz happened. Thanks for your support. Thanks for your help. Thanks for your big bright smile..." Gratitude. Its a good thing to share. :-)
