PPPR ~ Under the Sea Blog Hop

Hi everyone!
Thank You for joining us for the PPPR Under the Sea Blog Hop.
You should be coming her from  Lisa's Blog, if not please sure to start there.

 For my project I made a Fish Bowl Gift Box using a few PPPR cutting files, I always have fun playing around with PPPR files. I really love the way this turned out and can't wait to give it to my godson. 

 Here is a picture of how I used the PPPR Pineapple Gift Box Cutting Files as the base. To cut a straight line on a image make sure you are holding down the shift button while using the knife.  

Here is a picture of how I made the fish bowl with PPPR

Here is a picture of how I made the trim of the fish bowl using PPPR  Weeks 7-12 Pocket Cards Cutting Files. Make sure to leave a copy of the bowl without the trim so that you can add the waves.

Picture adding the waves and than you deign the front of the fish bowl as you like.
 What I used:

 MCT Alpha Pack stamp set
Ranger Archival Ink
Tim Holtz Tea Dye Distress Ink
Tim Holtz Tumbled Glass Distress Ink
 Tim Holtz Twisted Citron Distress Ink
  Tim Holtz Iced Spruce Distress Ink
Glossy Accents
Peachy Keen Stamp Set
