PPPR "Love is in the Air" Blog Hop

Hi everyone!

Thank You for joining us for the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons "Love is in the Air " blog hop.

 I'm so excited to be a part of this design team family! Make sure you start the blog hop at the beginning over at Lisa's blog HERE if you just happen to be passing by. You should be coming here from PPPR.

Wait till you see all the wonderful Love projects the design team has made using Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons files, which you can check out HERE.

For my project I made a little gift box to hold some Hershey kisses. For the box I used  PPPR Gift Box with Window Cutting Files. This cut file comes with two boxes, I used the smaller one. I cut the box out two time's. Once with kraft cardstock and then with the printed paper. The hot air balloon is from PPPR Patriotic Balloon Cutting Files. I removed the stars on the hot air balloon and replaced them with hearts from the PPPR Valentine Kids Cutting Files. The tiny hearts that are on the top right corner are the cut out hearts from the hot air balloon. The sentiment is from Pink By Design "Ticket to Ride" stamp set and the lips on the Hershey kisses is from Pink By Design "Flirty Girl" stamp set.
