In recent months, it’s become particularly clear who the everyday heroes are—they’ve always surrounded us! Teachers, healthcare workers, coaches, hairdressers, delivery workers, and our friends, family members, and neighbors continually run the extra mile to enrich our lives. These important, impactful people are truly the world’s greatest at what they do! And, there’s no better time than now to create something that’ll show them just how great you think they are.
Celebrate and appreciate life’s champions with the August Paper Pumpkin Kit! In this month’s medal-worthy kit, you’ll have enough supplies to create nine uplifting cards for the first-place people in your life. With die-cut watercolor trophies, Distinktive award ribbon stamps, and glimmery gold accents, this kit has everything you need to express gratitude in a heartfelt—and handmade—way.

Show appreciation for a friend with the World’s Greatest Friend Card! First, cut and fold a card base using Mint Macaron Cardstock. Set aside, then grab one of the kit’s Mint Macaron patterned card bases. With a Calypso Coral Stampin’ Write Marker, trace over the card front’s Bumblebee-colored lines. Cut the patterned card front from the card base, then adhere it to your handmade Mint Macaron card front. Cut a rectangle from Whisper White Cardstock and add texture with the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder. Cut another rectangle from Terracotta Tile Cardstock, slightly larger than the Whisper White rectangle. Then, adhere the rectangles to one another.
Assemble a gold ribbon using the die-cut gold foil accents from the kit, then cut a small circle from Night of Navy Cardstock. Using a VersaMark Pad, ink up the “World’s Greatest” and “Friend” stamps from the included stamp set, stamp onto the Night of Navy circle, and sprinkle with Stampin’ White Emboss Powder. Adhere to the center of the gold ribbon, then attach the ribbon to the Whisper White rectangle. To complete the card, use Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blends to add color to the die-cut vellum laurel accents. Adhere them to the card front—along with the gold ribbon rectangle—and add some gold star sequins. Pair the card with a coordinating envelope, and it’s ready for a grand slam send-off!

School’s back in session, and teachers need our support more than ever before. Express your gratitude with an adorable appreciation gift! First, cut a piece of Whisper White Cardstock to fit the front of your white gift bag. With a Balmy Blue Classic Stampin’ Pad, add ink to the “#1” stamp from the kit’s stamp set. Create a pattern by stamping all over the cardstock, then adhere the cardstock to the gift bag and set aside.
To assemble the pencil, cut a rectangle from Daffodil Delight Cardstock. Then, use the diamond-patterned die from the Many Medallions Dies to create the pencil’s edge. After cutting a square from Terracotta Tile Cardstock, use the Detailed Trio Punch to round two of the edges. From Crumb Cake Cardstock, punch the writing-end of the pencil with the Tailored Tag Punch. Cut a small triangle from Basic Gray Cardstock, adhere it to the punched piece, and attach it all to the pencil. Finish the pencil by cutting down a rectangular gold foil accent from the kit and adhering it where the pencil and eraser meet.
To create the award ribbon, gather the kit’s grosgrain ribbon and use our Multipurpose Liquid Glue to secure it to the back of a round gold foil accent from the kit. Use Real Red ink to stamp the “You’re the Best” and “Teacher” sentiments onto one of the kit’s round, white sentiment labels. Add some gold sequin stars from the kit, then adhere the sentiment label to the gold foil accent. To complete the tag, attach the award ribbon to the pencil, then punch a hole into the pencil eraser with the Detailed Trio Punch. Slip some white string through the hole to tie the tag to the bag, then finish it off by tying Bumblebee Gingham Ribbon and trim from the Playful Pets Trim Combo Pack to the handle. Fill the bag with crayons, chalk, and other classroom essentials to brighten a teacher’s day!
