Papertrey December Hop


The theme for this Papertey hop is Recycling from Christmas. I decided to use some left over wrapping paper but it was a bit thin. I decided to wrap it around some white card and then 3D mounted it onto the white cardstock. I used a PTI sentiment on a Spellbinder label to wrap around the card.


I also seem to have a LOAD of small pieces of white card left over from all the Christmas projects. I cut out this little notelet and stamped and punched loads of star to use it up. Quick and easy thank you notes for the after Christmas needs. Hope you like.
