The 4th of July is coming up on Friday and I love to have a few decorations for every holiday, like this Paper Pumpkin Patriotic Pinwheel Wreath. The June Paper Pumpkin Kit contained enough materials for 24 pinwheels, so I made some and put in a “bouquet” in my entry hall and also made a bunch of pinwheels but didn’t put them on the straws in the kit. Instead I ripped apart my spring wreath I had made from the kit in the Occasions Catalog and reused this burlap ribbon-wrapped flat wreath as the base for my pinwheels. For the top I made some stars with the two retired star punches (wish I’d had the new Star Framelits!) and even hand-cut some larger stars. I just used some hot glue to adhere the pinwheels, but for the stars I put on later, I was too lazy to get out the hot glue and just used Mini Glue Dots or Stampin’ Dimensionals.
If you aren’t already a Paper Pumpkin subscriber, you might want to sign up as the kits have just gotten better and better! Paper Pumpkin is a monthly subscription to a papercrafting kit you receive in a bright red box in the mail! You can subscribe in prepaid subscriptions, if you would like to add them to your Stampin’ Up! order. OR you can simply sign up to receive a kit every month. Once you are a Paper Pumpkin subscriber you have the option of purchasing certain past kits and refill packages while supplies last! Even though you missed getting this June kit, if you began a subscription to Paper Pumpkin, you could then purchase the Pinwheel Party refill kit (doesn’t include the stamps or ink).
There’s no risk! Try it out and pause your subscription if need be for a month or two and then restart. Or cancel at any time. Just decide before the 10th of any month before the kits ship. But I think you will enjoy getting that gift in the mail, just for you, with a quick and easy project of some kind inside (it’s not just cards!) with all the supplies you need except maybe adhesive.
If you prefer a prepaid subscription, just add it to your Stampin’ Up! order using these order numbers:
Let me know if you have any questions! I look forward to getting my Paper Pumpkin kit every month and know you will too!
