Papertrey Ink Blog Hop

Tonight is the monthly Blog Hop at Papertrey Ink! The challenge this month was to use one of the My Timeless Templates. I have quite a few of the templates and I just LOVE them all! :) Lauren really does a fantastic job with them and she does an even greater job of making you "need" them when you see her projects with them! LOL




For tonight's Blog Hop, I decided to use the Rounded Wrap Up template. As much as it's difficult to photograph well, I LOVE using acetate for these gift boxes. . .especially when you have colorful, cute things to display inside them. I bought this set of lip balms a while ago at Joann's in the clearance bin, but the packaging they came in wasn't too exciting. I thought making my own packaging with some Bitty Dot Basics patterned paper, acetate and one of my favorite PTI sets, Little Lady, would make these lip balms absolutely adorable. (Since I made the package, my 5 year old has been trying to swipe it!) LOL Berry Sorbet was the perfect match for the already decorated lip balms.

If you're as interested as I am in seeing what everyone else created using the My Timeless Templates, head on over to the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop Forum and follow all of the links! Thanks for stopping by and have a great night hopping! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Little Lady (PTI); Ink- Berry Sorbet (PTI), Onyx Black (Versafine); Paper- Bitty Dot Basics (PTI), Certainly Celery (SU), acetate; Accessories- Rounded Wrap Up template, Berry Sorbet ribbon (PTI), hole punch, Dazzling Diamonds glitter wire
