Papertrey Ink Blog Hop - September

Friday, September 25, 2009

Hello! I'm so glad I remembered the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop this month. I've been MIA for a few months. This month we were challenged to reuse, re-purpose or recycle packaging from your Papertrey Package. I chose to re-purpose the clear boxes that the stamps come in.
This is a box that holds Halloween treats. I mostly used the Hocus Pocus Collection from Doodlebug Design Inc. This would include the papers, spider sticker, and ribbon. This project was very simple. I used my Coluzzle to cut the circles to make a window. You can see the pumpkin shaped Reese Cups peeking out of the window.
I used two Papertrey Ink stamp sets to make the tag. The word "sweet" comes from Everyday Button Bits and I spelled out the word "TREATS" using Fresh Alphabet.

Thanks for stopping by this evening and I hope you enjoy the blog hop!
