Sending Sunshine Mini Boxes

Surprise – here’s one more project I was able to make with my Box of Sunshine Paper Pumpkin kit that I showed you yesterday.   This is a Mini Paper Pumpkin Box from the Annual Catalogue (p. 152).  They are sold with a matte white exterior, so I pulled out my blending brushes and added Crushed Curry and Poppy Parade ink to coordinate with the Box of Sunshine colours. Stamping Sponges or Sponge Brayers can be used instead.


I added some of the decorative elements from the Paper Pumpkin kit.

I used a bit of the kit’s yellow tissue paper to line the box, and added a couple of packs of Peanut Butter M&Ms for my upline, Kylie & Bruno Bertucci.  There are quite a few varieties of M&Ms available here, but Peanut Butter still aren’t.  ​I placed an order from USA Foods the other week and added these, since I know they are Kyle & Bruno’s favourites.

I’m going to be making a few more boxes this week to share some goodies with my apartment building’s front desk staff.  They keep going above and beyond for us residents while facing the public on our behalf so we can get our grocery and parcel deliveries, making everything Covid-safe, and keeping everything in the building running smoothly.

Here’s what I used for this project:
