When I Count My Blessings
Today's post is my take on the Challenge for Papertrey's September Blog Hop starting at 8 p.m. EST. The challenge was to reuse & recycle portions of our newly arrived Papertrey order in an earth-friendly way. Wow - what timing! I had just saved the clear plastic boxes from my most recent order and already had in mind what I wanted to use them for and then they released the challenge.
I am also using this for the most current Basic Grey Challenge to use embossing and a Basic Grey product.
I wrapped my Papertrey box in Bazzil Basics CS, made a panel out of Basic Grey Indian Summer, dry embossed a panel with the CB Leafy Branch embossing folder, tied it all up with button twine from Paprtrey along with a sentiment from their new Fall Elegance set and a little leaf charm from my stash, then randomly stamped small leaves from the same Papertrey Fall Elegance set. Inside are 2 6x6 Basic Grey paper pads - they fit perfectly and will make a great gift!
This was great fun. If you are not already following the Blog Hop, you can go HERE and see some wonderful creations!
