A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop: You Are My Anchor

Welcome to A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop! We'll be showing you some alternative projects that you can make with your Paper Pumpkin kit - each one of us has a card and a 3D project. I think you're going to really like what I created along with some of the fishermen (and women) friends in your life!

My husband and I LOVE fishing, so as soon as I saw the anchors in this Paper Pumpkin kit, my creative gears were in overdrive figuring out how I could make something with a fishing theme!

First, my card features repeated stamping using Crumb Cake and Island Indigo ink. It was so easy to do!

My 3D project is my favorite part of my alternative idea. I used an Acetate Box to hold 8 treat tubes filled jigs! For the walleye fisher in your life, this gift will hit the jackpot - trust me. I'm including some photos from my fishing adventures as proof.

I've got a video tutorial showing you how I made this card and 3D jig tube box. You can watch it by clicking the video below:

Card Dimensions:
  • Crumb Cake card base - 4 1/4" x 11; score & fold at 5 1/2"
  • Crumb Cake - 4 1/8" x 5 3/8"
  • Whisper Whit - 4" x 4 1/4"
  • Striped cardstock from kit - 1" x 4 1/4"

Jig Box Dimensions:
  • Anchor cardstock - 1 1/2" x 6"
  • Striped cardstock - 1" x 6"

Anyone in your life that loves fishing would LOVE to get this jig box, and this card coordinates perfectly. I just love how every Paper Pumpkin kit can be turned into so many more projects!
