I'm popping by today to tell you about the Box of Sunshine Paper Pumpkin kit that is now available to purchase in Australia, while supplies last. Paper Pumpkin is a monthly subscription based kit that is only available in North America. Occasionally (this is the second time), we get the opportunity to purchase one of these fun kits.
The idea behind a 'Box of Sunshine' is to fill a box with fun, bright, yellow/orange goodies to help brighten someone's day. The Box of Sunshine Paper Pumpkin kit was inspired by Stampin' Up! CEO, Sara Douglass so we can bring some colour, fun and smiles to friends and family during this crazy time of the COVID-19 pandemic. While the kit was available in June in North America, it is now available in Australia from today, 11 August 2020. This kit would also make a fabulous gift for a crafty friend.
Here is a short video from Sara, giving some more background to the development of the kit.
In the bright yellow box, there are enough supplies to make 8 full sized cards (2 each of 4 designs) and extra pieces to decorate the front of the box to send to your lucky recipient. The finished cards as designed are shown below.
• Box of Sunshine Photopolymer Stamp Set
• Basic Black Archival Stampin’ Spot
• Card bases with gold foil
• Printed envelopes with gold foil
• Die cuts with gold foil
• Printed die cuts with gold foil
• Die-cut stickers
• Adhesive-backed sequins
• Mini dimensionals
• Adhesive dots
The coordinating colours for the kit are Basic Black, Crushed Curry, Poppy Parade, Shaded Spruce, White and Gold. If you were thinking of gifting the kit to a friend, then a 'D' size acrylic block is required for the stamps.
The 8 piece Box of Sunshine Photopolymer stamp set that is included in the kit has a great set of versatile greetings and a couple of fun elements that you will continue to use long after making the cards in the kit. Here is a close-up photo to see the detail:
The cost for all of this sunny goodness is just $37.00AUD (before shipping) and the Item # in my Online Store is 155231. You can click on the link to go straight there. If you have Bonus Days Coupons to use, then this kit could be even cheaper!
If you would like to send all of your sunshine cards, why not use these Mini Paper Pumpkin Boxes that are available in the 2020-21 Annual Catalogue, to fill with sunshine. You get 10 in a pack for $13.00AUD, so they are great value. The dimensions of the assembled boxes are 14.9 x 9.5 x 2.5 cm and are food safe.
Of course, the fabulous thing about a craft kit is that you can use the elements to create alternate designs with the supplies. There are extra die cut pieces and stickers included, so you can make additional cards or change up the designs. Because the kit has just become available today to both customers and Demonstrators, I'm unable to show you any alternate designs I've created. However, I've been busy curating a Pinterest Board to give you heaps of inspiration for some alternate designs.

I love the idea of a 'Box of Sunshine' and if you are Victoria or have friends and family in Victoria, then you know how much we/they need some sunshine at the moment. I can't wait to get my kit and to start creating some sunshine!
