Paper Pumpkin July 2017: What a Gem!

Oh. My. WORD!!! I LOVE this months Paper Pumpkin!!! I'm for sure buying refill kits for this one! They are PERFECT (and just in time!) for this months customers thank you gift. Also great to attach to a birthday bag, or as party favors, and they would be GREAT for any church youth group! 

The sayings remind me of one of my favorite "motivational" scriptures (aren't they all motivational???) Matthew 5:16 that says "Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven." (KJV) Whether you are a Christian or not, it's a great reminder that we are each unique, and have something to offer as a light to this ever darkening world. No matter how small your efforts, you can improve the world around you. As Rabbi Schneur Zalman of Liadi said, "A little light dispels a lot of darkness."

Who wouldn't smile at a shiny little treat like this? It's almost too pretty to open! You're going to have to put something extra special inside to be sure not to disappoint! Ideas: mini candy bars, a few embellishments or a small spool of ribbon, earrings, or other sparkly jewelry, or... wait for tattoos. I have a TON leftover from Valentine's. (I may or may not have bought an extra dozen or 30 boxes. They were 90% off at Hobby Lobby! Tattoos don't expire!) 

Speaking of treats, I have an extra surprise for you. I'm finishing up a video on how I make these case inserts. So check back soon! Or better yet, sign up to get notified by email every time I post! (See that box on the right side? Yep, the one right under the sparkly buttons you can click to find me on Pinterest, Instagram, YouTube, Facebook and Etsy!)
