PPPR ~ Girly Blog Hop

Hi everyone!

Thank You for joining us for the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons "Girly" Blog Hop.

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 don't want to miss all the wonderful and super cute "Girly" projects that were made using PPPR files. If you're coming here from Brianna's blog than you're in the right place.

For my first project I used  the blog hop freebie PPPR "Purse Gift Bag 1 Cutting Files". It's free for today and tomorrow only so make sure you grab it after you hop along with us. I love this purse gift bag and see myself using it a lot. It was so fun and simple to put together and I was able to fit a good amount in there.

For my second project I used the same PPPR "Purse Gift Bag 1 Cutting Files" but added some velcro to close it together. I love how something so simple can change the look of the purse.

For my third project I used this weeks freebie PPPR "Purse Gift Card Holder Cutting Files". Another great file! I used my Zig marker for the stitching and added some glossy accents the button.
For the tab to be able to open and close I used my Zig two way glue pen. I let the dap of glue dry completely for repositionable bond.
What I used:
Pink By Design "Artisan Tags" stamp set
Pink By Design "Black Friday" stamp set
Glossy Accents
Memento Tuxedo Black Ink 
Zig marker
