Episode 20: Paper Playtime Blog Hop - Stocking Stuffers


Welcome to the Paper Playtime Blog Hop!  We are giving you ideas for stocking stuffers and little gifts.  You should have arrived here from Carley's Blog at The Real iCarley.  If not, be sure and start at the beginning at PAPER PLAYTIME because there are 7 Blog Candies being given away on the Paper Playtime Blog.

I made 2 projects for my post.  The first is what I made for my nieces and nephews.  They are tin cans filled w/ Pep-O-Mint Lifesavers.  At the bottom of the tin is a piece of paper and under that is $5.  The little penguin is also on there w/ an Action Wobble so it's a rockin' penguin.  :)  You can see exactly what it looks like in the video.  Recipe for this is at the very bottom of this post.



The next one is a card that I made for my siblings.  It holds a gift card.  I talk more about it in the video.  Recipe for this is at the very bottom of this post.







For my blog candy I am giving away 4 Petaloo Paper flower packs that are just GORGEOUS!  Please leave a comment on this blog.  Also be sure to leave a way to get a hold of you with your comment.  You do need a US address for this blog candy.  Sorry.  You don't need to be a follower to win the blog candy but I don't mind making new friends.  :)  You have until Monday, December 13th, at 10pm MST to enter.  1 entry per person.


Your next stop is Mary -  http://cardztv.blogspot.com/!  Thanks so much for hopping by.  Be sure and leave a comment for a chance to win my BLOG CANDY!
