Papertrey Ink December 2010 Blog Hop: Holiday Leftovers
Papertrey Ink's December Blog Hop challenge is to recycle holiday leftovers -- the wrapping paper, ribbon, tags, etc. -- into a new creation. For this challenge I used gorgeous pine cone wrapping paper in coppery brown, cream and gold to die cut one large pine cone, framing it with metallic gold foil cut from the largest Spellbinders' Lacey Square. I then cut my PTI Vintage Cream CS into a 5 1/4" square card, cutting off the lower tip of the "diamond" so it will stand. I stamped my Happy Winter sentiment from PTI's Wreath for All Seasons in Dark Chocolate ink on a Spellbinders' tag. I altered the end of the tag by snipping off the right ribbon slot with my curved scissors and slipped it onto cream raffia that had been tied to the handles of a wine/cheese gift bag we received this year. I ran the raffia through the lacey slots on the left and right at the top of my frame, tied a bow, and it's all ready to be given away to brighten someone's day!
