Mistletoe and Holly – November Paper Pumpkin

Back in November I shared the opening of that month’s paper pumpkin kit ~ Mistletoe and Holly ~ with a couple of videos and also launched my Facebook page ‘Cindy’s Pumpkin Patch ‘ where I shared each of the projects I made using the supplies within the kit and a few bits and pieces from my ‘stash’.  The kit has supplies to make 10 cards – after I played around I finished with 9 cards, and 2 gift tags and I had a blast doing it!
