belli challenge day!!

Oh, yay...it is Wednesday and I LOVE my project for the Belli Challenge this week! This week is Wrapping Paper! Make a card, alter an item, or make anything...like this stocking...with wrapping paper. This stocking is the presentation that I will place my son's teacher's gift in. It is also one of Lauren's FREE templates that you can download from PaperTrey Ink. Go HERE to see what I'm talking about.

So...what materials did I use for my stocking? I used SU! Bashful Blue and Chocolate Chip cardstock and some of the wrapping paper that they sold last year. I stamped it with snowflakes from the SU! set Snowburst and added a Merry Christmas tag from PTI's 2008 Christmas Tags set.

Although I didn't get a picture of it this is a box (as is shown in the link above) and I will place candy and the gift card for the teacher in the box portion. Here is the fun part...I'm pretty sure I will be the only person with a gift presentation like this. So FUN!

So? What can you make with wrapping paper? I would seriously love to see! As a matter of fact...if you post your card to my blog AND Chrissy's and you end up being the winner at Chrissy's blog...I'll send you some SNSS images (my choice)!! So...link your projects here so I can see as well as at Chrissy's blog for a chance to win fun candy twice!

Would you like to see some inspiration? Go check out the following blogs...Holly, Chrissy, Danita, Christi, Shelly, Sarah, Courtney, Joan and Jennifer.

So, girls...that is it! Oh, wait...no it isn't. Did you see what I added to my sidebar...oh, yeah...the Blog Hop break down for the Sweet N Sassy Stamps new release. I hope you'll be able to join us! Let me know if you have any questions at all!

Okay...that is it! Have a super Wednesday!
