Deck the Halls Blog Hop-PPPR

Thank you for stopping by today and joining our Deck the Halls Blog Hop..
You should of arrived here from Melissa's blog.
If you just stopped by and want to join the hop, just click HERE and it will link you to the beginning of the hop..

All of design team members are showcasing projects we created using the cute cutting files from the pretty paper, pretty ribbon's online store..

I decided to create a Christmas card holder to hold all our Xmas cards we get this year..
I have it hung up in my kitchen and I already have my first xmas card tucked in nicely in the pocket I created..

I used the clipboard cutting file and some chipboard to create the base of  my little card holder..
and then some cute files to decorate it..

how about a few close ups and some details:

I cut some of the stars in the "Best Buddies-cutting file" and created these 3D stars with them..
added some foam tape to the backs and attached them to wire which I tucked in underneath my flap to my pocket..

I printed the the words right onto the paper which I attached to the back of the clipboard..
The little twig looking things are from the Winter Cardinal cutting file and the scalloped edge to my pocket is in the Borders 2 cutting file

The cute little ginger bread men are in the Christmas cookies cutting file, the hearts are in the Valentines Sweets cutting file and the snow flakes are in the Winter Wonderland cutting file..

and this is what is looks like hanging up with my first xmas card tucked in the pocket.. 
It's not the best photo.
