Will You Be Mine?!? January 2015 Paper Pumpkin Alternative Project


Craftastic Passion - January Paper Pumpkin - FIlled with Love - Alternative Idea 1

I’m a lucky mom! My son is a senior in high school and still loves to give out Valentines.  I guess when you grow up with a crafty mom you just get used to hauling projects to school to give away 🙂  And . . . what high school kid is going to say no to candy, right?


So, this is what Hayden will be taking to school on Friday.  I used the stamp set from the January 2015 Paper Pumpkin kit to stamp the labels.  I also used some of the leftover Baker’s Twine from both January’s and November’s kits.  They were so easy to put together.  Can’t wait to see how his friends liked them.
