September 2012 Papertrey Ink Blog Hop


Can you believe it, we are almost to the end of September and it really feels like it just started! October will be here is less than a week, my favorite month of the year.  So in celebrating October just a bit early I decided to make my PTI Blog Hop project a Halloween one.  This month's theme is felt and fabric wrap challenge and as soon as I saw the theme I had my idea...I have had these Trendy Tubes from PTI for quite some time and thought they would be perfect for holding cupcake toppings!  I am going to give them as a gift along with some spooky Halloween cupcake papers and the some homemade cupcake mix in a Mason jar. Since I knew what I wanted to do I just had to figure out how to do it, so I went through all of my dies and found one I had never even pulled out of the package, the loopy bow die, just too much fun and I look forward to seeing what else I can use it for.


After I put the felt bow on the tubes it still needed something so I pulled out the label from the Tea for Two set and stamped the outline only and then used stamps from the Everyday Treats. 
Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek!
