Gift Giving Blog Hop-PPPR

Welcome to Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Gift Giving blog hop..

You should of arrived here from Melisa's blog,  if you just stopped by and want to join the hop, please start at Lisa's blog by clicking HERE

For today's hop we were to create projects for gift giving and we used lots of cute files that can be found in the pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbon store..

I decided to make some gift bags (Oval Window Treat Bag cutting file) and when I started with one, I just couldn't stop and ended up making three..LOL  These really were THAT much fun to make..

Are these cute or what?..LOL  

This is the first one I created.. Used the Scalloped Circles for the cookies and then added white leaves (Falling leaves cutting file) with diamond Stickles on them..  I  shadowed the scalloped oval surrounding the window, I wanted a layered look..

Check out this cute bear.. He's in the "Forest Critters" Cutting file and so is that tree, which I cut in half and instead of having a green top, I wanted it snowy so cut it in white :)  The snowflakes are in the Snowflakes cutting file..

and my personal favorite (because its pink)..  I added the layered snowflakes from the snowflakes cutting file and cut them as one instead of each layer individually :)  also added a flourish and silver ribbon..

We also have some cute blog candy for you :
