PPPR "Gift Giving" Blog Hop


Welcome to the "Gift Giving" blog hop with the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons design team.  You should have arrived at my blog after visiting the lovely Nanne's blog.  If you missed the beginning of the hop just head on over to Lisa's blog.  You won't want to miss out on all the creative gift giving projects the design team has created for today using Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons' designs.

For my project, I created a coffee gift card holder -




I used the "Coffee To Go" file from the "Java Great Day" cutting files.  I created an offset image, duplicated it and then welded it together to create the base of my card.  I did an internal offset to creat the inside layers of my card and then just used some green cardstock for the actual gift card holder.  I adhered the green cardstock to the base and then just trimmed it up using some scissors.  The holly on the outside of the card is from "Santa Titles" cutting files.  My sentiments are from Cardz TV Stamps' "Christmas Joy", "Brew Ha Ha" and "Home for Christmas" stamp sets.

***BLOG CANDY***

Lisa is offering up this great blog candy for the hop.  For a chance to win, you must be a follower of each blog and leave a comment on each blog.
