PTI August Blog Hop...CD Case Photo Cube Planter


PTI August Blog Hop Details from Papertreyink.com...
"Just about any paper crafter you meet will let you know how much they love to alter regular household items they already have in their home. This month's Blog Hop Challenge is to alter a CD case into something other than it's original purpose. You can use some of the new CD Calender Cases we have just begun to carry or a standard version that you recycle from your old music stash. You can take it apart, add additional pieces to it, cut it, punch it, stamp it, heat it & bend it. You can have it hold something, display, contain, carry or collect anything! The sky's the limit! We look forward to seeing all of your ideas!"
