PTI September Blog Hop




It is time for PTI Blog Hop. This time the challenge is to reuse, re purpose or recycle packaging from the Papertrey Package. I did two projects this time for this challenge.



I used the clear boxes that the stamps come in and re purposed it to be a card holder. I used the PTI 6x6 designer Paper and covered this clear box on both sides. I put a ribbon and the used the new holiday sets - Vintage Label, Signature Christmas and Sweet Poinsettia to create the tag for the front of the box.



I also use the Corrugated Chipboard packaging that they use to keep the PTI Papers from getting bent and created a card with it.



I kept the card simple with the bird house as the focal image.

Supplies:
Stamp - PTI Bird Watching, PTI Vintage Label, PTI Signature Christmas, PTI Sweet Poinsettia
Paper - PTI Rustic White CS, PTI Everyday Blessings DP
Ink - Memento Black, Copics, PTI Dark Chocolate, PTI Hibiscus Burst, PTI New Leaf
Other - Nestabilities
