My Paper Pumpkin - This is a Test(tube)

My September Paper Pumpkin arrived and I absolutely LOVE it and the potential that comes with it.

After I made up some of them, I decided they really need something to hold them up. There are a lot of plans online for holding tubes, spritzers, etc. but being a late night and getting ready for tomorrow's event with Diana Gibbs, I didn't have the time to build something from scratch.

Then I remembered I have the White Gift Boxes with the plastic sleeve around them.

I punched 4 holes in the top with the 3/4" circle punch, put some of the blue tissue paper from the Paper Pumpkin box in the bottom so they didn't go in so far, plus it keeps them from sliding around.

Then decorated the sides of the box with 2 3/4" x 2 3/4" Halloween Night DSP.

I think with more time, these will be even cuter doing more to the box or the tubes. These will be some really cute gifts for the holidays and I think they can go beyond Halloween!

DID YOU KNOW, you can order refills of past Paper Pumpkin kits when you are a subscriber to My Paper Pumpkin? I think these will go quickly, so if you want them better sign up quickly and get your hands on them!

Please be sure to select me as your Demonstrator on your Paper Pumpkin order and I'll send you something special.

Here is the top of the box.  I also had to cut down the side flaps inside the box so the tubes would slide down easily.  They also help to hold them in place a bit.

Thank you for looking in today!  I'd love for you to sign up for My Paper Pumpkin with me as your Demonstrator.  I think you'll enjoy the fun weekly kits.

Happy Saturday!


  1. Is this the best or what? I love your holder! Thanks for telling us the size of the hole punch! I love seeing what people are putting in their tubes. I can see these for Christmas, little red hot candies for Valentines Day, Easter with tiny jelly beans etc. I agree the refill kits will go fast I think. I love reusing the tissue paper from the PP box and was so happy not to have it stuck with a sticker this time. You could use the PP box to stand up all the tubes even if you really wanted to put a lot of the work in the holes - might have to use the Big Shot. Anyway, just displaying 4 is fun and cute for me! Great job! Have a great time at your retreat!
