Hello, welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month our Design Team’s theme is “Tag, You’re It” – tags or 3D projects to get you inspired for the upcoming gift season. We hope you enjoy and will be inspired by them! Don’t forget to leave comments! We love hearing from you. At the end of my post, you will find the full line-up to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.


I am so excited to share with you these super duper, Mini Paper Pumpkin Boxes! They are a great size for holding notecards and envelopes, or innumerable, small gifts. Mr. Moose said the outside of the box was just as important as the inside, and wanted a prominent position. Follow along to see how all of this took place.

Decorated Mini Paper Pumpkin Box


First, I have to tell you about the Mini Paper Pumpkin Boxes. They measure 5 7/8″ X 3 3/4″ X 1″, and are food safe. Mr. Moose has already asked me to fill his box with his favorite twigs. There are 10 boxes in the pack, so I can spare one, don’t you think?

The boxes come scored, and ready to fold, and no glue is required; they just fit together. Isn’t that fantastic?


Decorating the box is fun too, and reminded me of my grandmother’s beautifully wrapped packages. She would wrap just the lid in Christmas paper, so the boxes could be used year after year. I loved seeing the familiar boxes under our Christmas tree. This box was “wrapped” in the same fashion. The gingham paper is Heartwarming Hugs Designer Paper, cut in five pieces: top-5 1/2″ X 3 3/4″, long sides-5 1/2″ X 1″, short sides-3 3/4″ X 1″. They were easily glued to the box with Tombow.


Mr. Moose is so cute, made with the Moose Punch, Copper Foil, and the Subtle Textured Embossing Folder. I layered him on cardstock before placing him on Dimensionals, because he wanted to “stand out.”

His next request was soft pine limbs to walk on, which I found in the Sound Of The Seasons Die Set, and cut from Pear Pizzazz Cardstock. But, he explained that he’s too tall to eat from the ground, so he needed trees where he could reach their tasty limbs. The trees are from the Pine Woods Die Set, cut from Mossy Meadow Cardstock.


Mr. Moose thinks surprises are important, so he wanted me to say,”No peeking until Christmas,” which I found in the Itty Bitty Christmas Stamp Set. It’s stamped it in Real Red Ink, cut with an Ornate Frames Die, and attached to a tree limb.


For extra security, he said I should tie some Real Red Braided Linen Trim around the end of the box. Although, it’s easy to slip off the side, I like the added touch.


Thanks so much for hopping by! Mr. Moose and I hope you enjoyed seeing our decorated Mini Paper Pumpkin Box. All of the supplies are in my Product List below.
