Pins To Creations Design Team Winter/Christmas/Hanukkah Blog Hop

Hi everyone!  Welcome to my blog and the Pins To Creations Design Team Winter/Christmas/Hanukkah Blog Hop!

Today the amazing Pins To Creations Design Team is showcasing Pinterest inspired creations Winter, Christmas and Hanukkah style!

If you are just coming from Esther's Blog, you are right on track.  If you just came across my blog and would like to hop along, please start at the beginning at the Pins To Creations Blog!

So I've been pinning like crazy for the holiday.  I was pretty focused on finding a different way to package/wrap gifts.  I came across this pin that was using kraft paper and parchment paper.  They also shared a way to use the front on old Christmas cards.  Click here to be taken to the original pin.  Here is the picture....

Wrapped gifts

So here is my creation....

So as usual I took my own take to the inspiration.  I used freezer paper instead.  Because it's been eons since I've seen a store bought card I decided to use a piece of pattern paper from Martha Stewart's Snowflace that I knew I would never use.  I also used a Snow Marker, Jaded Blossom Christmas Wishes, Berry Red twine from Trendy Twine and a White Gel Pen.

It's a picture frame that I had wrapped up.  I am loving all the unique packaging they have around Pinterest.

There are some awesome prizes being given away so be sure to check out the Pins To Creations Blog!

I am giving away a $10 gift certificate to Designs On Cloud 9 here on my blog!
To win:
1.  Leave a comment on this blog post
2.  Leave a way for me to reach you

I will announce the winner on Monday, December 31st.

Thanks for hopping by!

Your next stop is Ann's Blog.

I too have some 12 x 12 sheets that I will never use as a layout...this is perfect for them! Love that snow pen effect and I have had freezer paper for like 12 years in the pantry. Awesome way to finally get to use it! Thanks for the inspiration Ashley!
