PPP Blog Hop Winter Gifts

Hello friends and welcome to the Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop featuring the November Winter Gifts kit!  Tonight we are sharing alternate ideas for your kit supplies and stamps.

The Winter Gifts kit makes 24 amazing gift tags as pictured below.  I really loved the tag designs and unique look of each design.  I wanted to find a, application for tags using them as designed, so I made a banner above. This is a cute home decor item that I can make several and gift to friends to use at home, on their desk at the office, or even at a care home where space is limited for decor.

Here is a further back look of it on my cabinet.

You will need about 60 inches of the Real Red ruched ribbon from our Holiday catalog.  I measured in about 12 inches and tied a knot onto the silver twine (left photo).  Then I measured over about 6 inches and tied on the next tag (center photo).  Repeat until you have all four tags attached to the length of ribbon.  You will have about a foot of ribbon on each end.  Tie a knot about 3-4 inches in from each end which you can use to hang with tack; or in my case, to tuck into a slot and the knot keeps it in place (right photo). 

Here is a close up of the tag tied into the knotted ribbon banner.  I think I will make a banner for my grandma, it will look festive hanging from her shelf.

Next I couldn't resist the holly stamp as a card background, so I HAD to make a card!

For my card, I stamped the image in Shaded Spruce on the same card stock.  I used the tag hole punch outs in Real Red and I used my 1/8" hole punch with the negatives to acquire smaller Real Red punches (left photo).  Using liquid glue I adhered the holly berries into place, shown in photo below.

Three loops of silver twine were adhered onto the back of the sentiment and then dimensionals give the sentiment some "POP" onto the card front.  Oh! I also couldn't resist the "made with love" stamp and used it on the back of my card - now I can add my name below.
