Hope Box by Paper Pumpkin

August 25, 2021

The Hope Box Paper Pumpkin Kit was inspired by Stampin’ Up! cofounder, Shelli Gardner, whose vision was to add more hope into the world—a goal that needs the help of our global Stampin’ Up! community to complete. So, get ready to empower yourself and others with the Hope Box Paper Pumpkin Kit!

This one-of-a-kind Paper Pumpkin kit includes enough supplies to create nine encouraging cards and coordinating envelopes in an inspiring color palette and a specially designed Hope Box! The Hope Box is designed to be a keepsake box—keep mementos of cherished memories or reminders of what’s yet to come. Collect treats and trinkets that represent what hope means to you and look inside for inspiration or share it with a friend who could use some uplifting!

What will you put in your Hope Box? Letters, song lyrics, inspiring quotes, and photographs are powerful reminders of hope and connection—and great additions to a Hope Box. For more inspiration on how to build your Hope Box, watch Shelli herself put one together in this video.
