Be Mine Valentine ~ A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop

I don't know about you, but January has been the LONGEST month ever!  I can honestly say that I am so happy to see the end of the month.  Not only are we getting closer to spring, but the end of the month also means an all new A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop!
We're back at it sharing our alternative creations using the January Be Mine, Valentine kit. I look forward to Paper Pumpkin every January because I know it will cover school Valentine's for my youngest!  While I'll be using the kit as intended for his class treats, I had a few pillow boxes left over, which I cut in half to create some mini treat holders for his friends at church too.
The 2x8 cello bags fit perfectly inside the pillow boxes once I cut them in half.  After filling them with some tasty treats, I trimmed off the excess and tied the tag around the top to secure treats.

Stampin' Up! was brilliant to coordinate another kit with a catalog suite!  Animal Expedition is one of my favorite suites!  I used a bit of the Animal Expedition DSP along with some extra tags to create a couple of cute Valentine cards.  These went together so quickly thanks to the punch out pieces!
I hope to see more Paper Pumpkin kits coordinating with our catalog suites.  This helps in creating so many more fun projects!

I'm so happy you hopped on by today!  Be sure to hop along to all the other participants and see their amazing alternative projects!

Happy Stamping!
