Kisses & HUGS!

We all know that roses are red and violets are blue—it’s time that love-themed cards got an upgrade! The January Kisses & Hugs Paper Pumpkin Kit will help you express that forever kind of love with heart-shaped cards that would make Cupid jealous. 

The Kisses & Hugs kit is not bound to just Valentine’s Day, it works for all love occasions year-round like anniversaries, weddings, birthdays, or those “just because” days.


You have your set of instructions included in the kit—but why stop there? The contents of the Kisses & Hugs kit can be turned into more than just cards. The unique heart-shaped cards can be trimmed into three separate hearts. Turn them into tags, backgrounds for scrapbook pages, or whatever your creative mind can think of!  


This Paper Pumpkin kit was created to be shared! While heart-shaped cards might make you think of Valentine’s Day, Kisses & Hugs goes beyond that single day in February. You can use this kit for many love occasions like weddings, anniversaries, or even those “just because” days. And with universal sentiments like “Friend” and “For You,” this kit can perfectly celebrate cherished friendships, too! 


The Kisses & Hugs Mini Treat Boxes (item 160147) are an exciting add-on to this month’s kit! This is a chance to create stylish treat boxes to match the heart-shaped cards in the kit. While these boxes are small, they make a big impact that shines with gold foil printing. The Kisses & Hugs Mini Treat Boxes are sold separately starting 25 January and only available while supplies last, so don’t wait too long to snag them!
