February Paper Pumpkin!

I received my February Paper Pumpkin kit in the mail yesterday and couldn't wait to open it.  This is one of the very few times I looked at the project and thought "eh...".  So, I went ahead and put together one of the cards according to the sample.  Here is the kit and the sample included:

The kit came with supplies to make 8 accordion fold thank you cards.  The envelopes are adorable little boxes.  I loved that the kit came with 2 Stampin' Spots, and the stamp set is good too.  

Here's a close up of the stamp set.  
Here is the completed card as shown in the instructions.  
As I was looking at the kit, thinking of other uses, I had an epiphany!  I decided to cut the 8 paneled card down to 4 sections of 2 panels each.  This made 4 2-3/4"x 3-3/4" little gift cards!  YAY!!!  I made 4 envelopes for a 2-1/2 x 3-1/2 card which fit these perfectly!

These cards used only the supplies in the kit this month (except for the envelopes made with the Envelope Punch Board).  They fit just right in the little box.  

Here is another set, but I used some words, ink and sequins from the December Paper Pumpkin kit.  
Using the kit this way, you have 8 sets of gift cards, wrapped in adorable little gift boxes!  YES!  You can use other stamps, ink, etc. to make them just the way you want.  Tomorrow, I'll be sending out the February bonus project to my subscribers who have received their kit this month.
