Hello Pumpkin Card Ideas – September 2020 Paper Pumpkin

9 Hello Pumpkin Card Ideas featuring the September 2020 Paper Pumpkin kit. Yes, today you will learn how to turn those treat holders into adorable cards! The kit is called Hello Pumpkin and features all of the materials you need to make 20 treat holders. However, I only made 4 of the 20 treat holders. Why you ask? Well, one of my team members inspired me to create cards instead! So today I have a variety of different Hello Pumpkin card ideas to share. I also have a cutting template for you so you can cut up the treat holder to create 4 cards!

Hello Pumpkin Card Making Template

Now these treat holders really are super adorable! And I had to make up a few for my grandchildren. However, I am a card maker so I just had to cut apart the treat holders. The idea for cutting up the treat holder and creating a template came from Beth Haubach. She shared some of her card creations at our team meeting last week which were super inspiring! I played with this kit for an entire afternoon!

The little candy wrapper treat holders are so easy to make. All I had to do was fold on all of the score lines, glue the side together, stuff it with treats and decorate it! The kit came with everything and then some! I have so many fun little embellishments to play with! So let’s talk about the card making template. The pic above features one of the treat holders cut into pieces. Each of these pieces can be used to create the cards I am about to share with you. The measurements reflect the width of each piece.

If you decide to use the template to cut up the little treat holders, you will end up with enough pieces to make all 3 of the cards. You can make 3 Halloween or 3 Autumn Themed cards from ONE treat holder. Plus you have an extra lattice piece leftover so you can make two of the lattice style cards. Pretty cool, hey?

Scallop Edge

So first let’s talk about how to use the scallop edge piece from cutting up the treat holder. There is a pattern on both sides of the treat holder so I used one pattern to create the Halloween cards and the other pattern to create the pumpkin cards. No matter which pattern you choose, the measurements for creating the cards are exactly the same.

Start with a 5-1/8 x 3-5/8 inch piece of cardstock. Adhere the 3/4 inch wide scallop edge piece to the left side of the cardstock (the 5-1/8 inch side). Wrap a bit of twine around the cardstock and tie the ends into a bow. Then go ahead and adhere it to the card front. Each of these cards feature a variety of fun shapes from the kit. They are perfect for creating a focal point and embellishing the card. If you do not have last month’s paper pumpkin kit, no worries! Simply use the measurements with ANY patterned paper and embellishments you have on hand.

Lattice Card Layout

The next couple of cards feature a lattice style design. The lattice background piece is the 1-3/4 x 5-1/8 inch piece cut from the Hello Pumpkin treat holder. It makes a super fun backdrop for the cards. If you do not have the Paper Pumpkin kit, simply cut a 1-3/4 x 5-1/8 inch piece of patterned paper to create your card.

Start by tearing a 1-1/4 x 5-1/8 inch piece of cardstock in half. Adhere each of the torn pieces of paper to the left and right side of the lattice paper; then adhere to the card front. The focal point for each of these cards, again, features materials from the kit. Of course you can use ANY shapes or things you have on hand to embellish your cards.

Z-Fold Card Ideas

The next two card ideas feature one of my favorite card designs; a Z-Fold card! To create this Z-Fold, cut a 4-1/4 x 11 inch piece of cardstock. Score the 11 inch side at 2-3/4 and 5-1/2 inches to create the base of the card. Fold the 2-3/4 inch section back onto itself to create the front flap of the Z-Fold. Ok, now we are ready to decorate it!

These two cards feature the 2 x 5-1/8 inch piece and one of the 3/4 inch scallop edge pieces. The pieces are about 3/4 inch longer than the length of the card base. Cut down the pieces so they measure 2 x 4-1/4 inches and 3/4 x 4-1/4 inches. Adhere the 2 inch wide piece to the front flap of the card. Adhere the 3.4 inch scallop piece to the right edge of the inside of the card.

Create two layering circles; one for the inside and one for the front of the card. Circle shapes measuring 2-3/8 or 2-1/2 inches will work perfect! Adhere one set of layering circles to the front flap of the card and one set on the inside. Then simply decorate as desired.

Simple Hello Pumpkin Card Ideas

The last couple of Hello Pumpkin card ideas feature some of the fun little embellishments in the September kit. The only additional item you need is a few layering circles and some gems as everything else came in the kit! The pumpkin card reminds me of Cinderella’s carriage without the wheels! Haha! Both of these cards are simple and fun to make!

Chevron Design

The last card idea I have to share features a fun little chevron design. This is a great way to use up all of the little diamond shapes that are leftover from punching out the treat holder shape. There are so many fun patterns you can create with these little pieces. Simply use the same pattern all the way across the card or mix and match the patterns for a fun look!
