December 2021 Paper Pumpkin Alternative cards and projects from the Tons of Pun kit

This kit was an interesting one, I can’t say I have made cards before featuring eggs, toast, cherries and bananas before but then that is what I love about Paper Pumpkin kits every month! They push me out of my comfort zone and because I love the challenge to create, no need to the directions from Stampin Up are great fun cards and projects each month. But I like to push the box, lol or see what I can come up with for fun and different cards projects each month and share them with you. I love to see how far I can take these fun set and challenge myself to use every last piece each month and to see how many items I can make. I love to adapt the cards to common cards needed such as birthday, sympathy etc. However, eggs and toast were a bit of a challenge! The eggs turned into flowers in my world, I used the toast and the cherries and bananas were fun! Sometimes, I need to be less serious and just have fun and this kit was a fun kit!
