October PTI Blog Hop Polka Dots...


This month for the Blog Hop Nichole asked us to use Polka Dots on a project. I can't get enough of PTI's Polka Dot ribbon with every new color if I can't afford all the beautiful ribbons but I make sure to Purchase the Polka Dot, it is beautiful! Now with the addition of the new Polka Dot Parade DP it is a little slice of heaven.

The project below is a going away snowbird gift for my Dad, he will be leaving for Arizona to spend the winter. On the back of this I glued a 2009 calendar. Nice and easy project for some paper and a calendar organized all in one small place. Perfect for living out of a 5th wheel.





Above photo shows two projects I have worked on the first is a magnetic coaster covered with the Polka Dot Parade DP.

Next is a magnetic 4 by 6 photo sleeve here are some previous ones I have made along with the tutorial for making them {HERE}
