I was working on another Paper Pumpkin card (this card here) & the strips I had cut off to make a smaller size were laying over another card & I saw chevron.... major AHA! moment for me! Oh I felt all warm & fuzzy inside. Love it when those moments happen.

Now listen me out please, this card is truly easy. Take your striped card front from your Paper Pumpkin kit, or any diagonal stripe for that matter & cut 1/2 inch strips. I started with the bottom & cut three 1/2" strips. Then I turned the card a quarter turn & cut three more 1/2" strips from the other side. This way I could line up the colors of the chevron. 

Then I adhered them to my daffodil delight layer, trimmed it to size & it was done! 

(Of course then I shared at My Pumpkin Challenge... It's one of my favorite Paper Pumpkin Challenge blogs. They come up with so many fun ways to  use the kit! Do check it out!)

And then they chose me for the Awesome Pick! Wow.

That gorgeous 'hello friend' sentiment is from a previous Paper Pumpkin kit. Yup. Paper Pumpkin is a great deal! Especially now when they are offering new subscribers 50% off their first 2 months!

Now what exactly were you waiting for? 


It's here. 

Oh. I heard you. You say you are busy in summer. Right. So. It's just a little box. Put it on the shelf. Doesn't take up much room & it will still be good in fall. Think about all the fun you will be saving just for yourself.  The deal is only for now. Not later.

(Although I'm gonna guess you will quick do it because it doesn't take a lot of time. Truth!)
