Papertrey December Blog Hop Challenge


It's been several months since I had a chance to participate in the PTI Blog Hop so I decided to make it a point to join in this month. I just got my December release goodies and I think I tried to use almost all of them on this project, LOL!

Here's this month's challenge:

Holiday Leftovers

It's that time again for our annual holiday leftovers challenge!  Use scraps of wrapping paper, parts of
holiday cards, recycle gift tags or bits of ribbon on a paper crafting project.  We all have plenty of it laying around after all the holiday excitement and this is your chance to incorporate some of those pretty

little things into an amazing piece of art!

The holiday leftovers on my project are the pieces of gingham ribbon. I received a gift with this ribbon on it and I saved it because I knew it would come in handy - and it did!


All products are PTI except the black Pearl cotton, the ribbon, and the little heart shaped rhinestones. this was a fun project to make and it will look really good hanging on a special Valentine's Day gift :)

Thanks for stopping by today! Be sure to check out all the other fabulous projects at Nichole's blog. Participants will be uploading there all day today, between 10:00am and 11:00pm EST.
