PTI December Blog Hop


Once again, I've decided to play along with this month's PTI blog hop. This month's challenge is their traditional "Holiday Leftovers Challenge": to use some of the left-over wrapping paper, bows, ribbon, tags, canceled postage from holiday cards you have received, photos from holiday cards and anything else you might have laying around after the holiday preparations have ended to create a project.

I was honestly a little stumped by this challenge, until I was helping Sage wrap a present and some of the left-over wrapping paper caught my eye. I decided to run the scrap through my Cuttlebug with a Tag Sale #5 die and make a tag for my mom's Christmas gift:


I used Papertrey Ink cardstock (kraft, soft stone), stamps (tremendous treats: Christmas), twine, button and dies (Tag Sale#5, double ended banner).

Thanks for looking!
