Hey, everyone! Welcome to the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Gift Giving Blog Hop. My wonderful design team friends and I have created all sorts of beautiful gifts using Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons (PPPR) files. We also have some blog candy to share and a fun freebie (just for this weekend). Oh, and we'll be kicking off a new challenge today. So, be sure to read on to find out how to join in on all of the fun.
For this hop, I created two little gifts to give some friends this holiday season.
This box is the new Gift Box with Window Cutting File that is this hop's freebie. The hot cocoa mug is from the PPPR Hot Cocoa Cutting Files. The pattern on the box is from the PPPR Vintage Christmas White Polka Dots Digital Paper Pack. I added a sentiment from the Close to My Heart Very Merry Christmas Stamp Set and a pretty snowflake ribbon. The box holds 3 packets of Hot Cocoa, some marshmallows, and some peppermint sticks.
This is a smaller version of the same box. The wood grain pattern is from the PPPR Man, Oh Man Pattern Pack 1. I created the poinsettia using different sizes of a flower from the PPPR Flower Assortment Cutting Files set cut in red and green. I think it turned out great! I added some little yellow enamel dots and another sentiment from the Close to My Heart Very Merry Christmas Stamp Set. Then, I filled it with a little bag of Dove candies. YUM!!!
Now, if you'd like to try out this file for yourself, you can find it HERE. It will only be available for free on Saturday and Sunday, but it will be available for purchase in the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Store after that.
Our hop also kicks off our 7th monthly challenge. Woot woot! The theme this month is Gift Giving. Create anything that has to do with Gift Giving using Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons files as the focus, and link it up for a chance to win a gift certificate to PPPR.
