Hello my stamping friends.  It’s time for our monthly A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop.  A blog hop filled with alternate ideas using contents from the monthly kit. This month our kit is – Broadway Star (June 2018) and an added bonus it coordinates with the Broadway Bound Suite in the Annual Catalog.


This months kit is bright and bold and full of star power!  The kit includes supplies to make 8 cards to celebrate a birthday, graduation or other event. 

For my first alternate idea I made a very simple change to the card base and turned it into a triangle box.  You aren’t going to believe how simple this was to make and I only used supplies in the kit.  Well I did use black ink instead of the Lovely Lipstick from the kit but that was it.

Triangle Treat Box

I used the black and white striped card base and added two additional score lines half way between the center score line and the edge of the card on either side – that’s 2-1/8″ from each side.  Then fold on all three score lines and overlap the two end sections and you have a triangle box.  The ends are open so just slide in a treat.  I’ll confess that I actually made my box and then took it to the store to find a treat to go inside.  I came up with four different treats that fit but I’m sure there are more. 

  1. two Hershey’s almonds bars
  2. Zebra roll cake
  3. Hershey Snack Mix packet
  4.  Take 5 bar

Here is a closer look from the side so you can see the shape. 

Supply List

The additional supplies that I added to complete this project were:

  • Memento Black ink


For my second alternate idea I decided to make a card to go with my triangle box. 

Congrats Card

Since I stuck with the black, white and gold I wanted to basically do the same thing on my card. To make the banner piece I used some of the paper from the coordinating Broadway Bound Specialty Designer Series Paper.  I took some left over pieces of the gold sticker sheet from my kit and cut enough of a scrap to add to the stamped piece of cake.  Gold cake anyone?  I stamped multiple times with the CONGRATS stamp to create the background piece.
