Print Candee Blog Hop!

Time for the first Print Candee blog hop! Woo hoo! You should be coming from Marion's blog. If not, be sure to start at the beginning on the Print Candee blog so you don't miss any of the amazing projects.

We're working with a baby/kid theme, and I decided to make 3-D stickers:


Aren't they adorable? They're from the Friendly Frog Kit by Pixel Paper Prints. I printed each one three times, cut out the frogs, and then layered them with foam tape. It was a great and easy way to make customized stickers. I ran the bottom layer through my little Xyron, but if you don't have that, you could use computer sticker paper or just stick adhesive on the bottom, too.

I was done with the stickers, but then I realized I needed to put the stickers on something, so I made a cute little gift bag:


The paper for the bag is from the same Friendy Frog Kit. The digital patterned papers are fantastic! You know how sometimes you want a larger scale than 6x6 paper pads? With digital papers, you can make the scale any size you want and print it on white cardstock. Love that! Here's a side view of the frog and bag:


Anyhoo, the cute little bag is Print Candee's Ribbon Bag template, and all you have to do is open the pdf file, print it, cut it out, and score it. And here's a tip, if you print the patterned paper on both sides, you have a lined box and you can fold the box so the lines are only showing on the inside.

So what's a bag without a gift? I thought this bag would work great for a gift card, but I searched around my house and found this little baby rattle:


Wouldn't that make a great baby gift? You could also make these up pretty quickly for shower favors...candy treat bags...party favors...get the idea?
