Give the gift of monthly crafting to someone who loves to craft but doesn’t have a lot of time, space or supplies! Personally, I love craft kits. I love getting the package in the mail every month and I love having a kit that has everything that I need to complete a quick and easy project in a short amount of time. Stampin’ Up! has the perfect little monthly craft kit subscription and it’s called My Paper Pumpkin!
I’m always looking for new and creative gifts to give family and friends. I remember one year when I was just learning to read, my Uncle Wayne gave me a gift subscription to a magazine. I loved getting that magazine in the mail each month. It was filled with stories and puzzles and it came in the mail just for me!
My Paper Pumpkin is a great gift idea. Give someone special a gift subscription to My Paper Pumpkin and they can look forward to receiving a new project to create each month. The kits come with all of the supplies you need to complete the project of the month: ink, papers, stamps and embellishments. (The only thing that you will want to add is an adhesive and paper snips. I recommend the Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue and Stampin’ Up!’s Paper Snips. If you are giving this to a younger child, you will want to consider a glue stick and safety scissors.)
I’ve subscribe to My Paper Pumpkin since Stampin’ Up! began releasing them several months ago. I’ve been surprised by the variety of projects that they have come up with. I think that the kits are perfect for beginner stampers who don’t have a lot of supplies, college students who don’t have a lot of space to craft and store supplies, kids and crafters of all ages who like to have kits on hand for a 30 minute craft escape! If you are a very experienced crafter, this is probably not the kit for you unless you love the challenge of stepping it up and adding your own twists and techniques from your stamping stash!
I also think that these are perfect kits for parents and grandparents to have on hand for those rainy days! I still keep craft kits on hand for my daughter to use during her quick vacation visits home. She loves to bake and she loves to craft. (The kits make clean up so much easier!!!) These also make great quick gift ideas, whether you give the craft kit itself or make the project and wrap it up and give it as a completed gift.
- The kits are $19.95 a month (that includes the cost of shipping).
- You get all the supplies you need to complete the project of the month except for adhesive and scissors.
- The first kit you receive is the welcome kit and it includes a clear block that will work with all of the stamps that you get for future kits.
- The kits are shipped automatically each month and you can stop your subscription at any time!
