PTI September Blog Hop: Reuse/Recycle/Repurpose Packaging
Our challenge for PTI's September Blog Hop was: "to reuse, repurpose or recycle packaging from your Papertrey Package." If you're unfamiliar with PTI's Blog Hop, you can go here to find a list participants after 8 PM Eastern time! I kept all my PTI packaging with this very intent in mind! I took two of the larger clear boxes PTI stamps came in, cut them both down at an angle from left to right and then used my PTI 1/8" Scor Tape (LOVE it) to tape them together. Because my plan was to have my Cuttlebug Embossing folders not only handy but easily seen so I'd remember to use them, I kept my project simple. For a little fun I cut letters from PTI Raspberry Fizz Mix papers with my Sizzix to spell "create!", used glue dots to attach them, and now have the perfect grab & go container for all my large & small border embossing folders right at my fingertips on my craft table next to my Spellbinder Wizard machine. Quick, easy, useful "green" recycling!!! Can't wait to see what all you ingeniously clever ladies came up with for this challenge -- so hopping I shall go!!!
