December Papertrey Blog Hop - Holiday Leftovers Challenge

Here's what Papertrey has challenged us to do this month:
Since the blog hop will be taking place the day after Christmas, we thought we would hold to our traditional "Holiday Leftovers Challenge".  Of course we aren't referring to food, but all of the wrapping paper, bows, ribbon, tags, canceled postage from holiday cards you have received, photos from holiday cards and anything else you might have laying around after the holiday preparations have ended.  Your challenge is to use some type of leftover materials to create a project.  And if you really want to challenge yourself even further, you can try to create a non-holiday card from your leftovers.  We look forward to seeing what you come up with!


And here's what I came up with:
 It's hard to see in the photo but the gift wrap is white foil with shiny silver ... so cute!

Supplies:
Paper: Leftover Christmas wrapping, Autumn Rose and white cardstock
Misc: PTI Quatrefoil coverplate, M's foam dimensional alphabet stickers

Very pretty seeing that snowflake paper peeking out from behind the quatrefoil die. Very effective.

That is such a great idea! I love the silvery paper peeking through that die cut. So elegant, perfect for a thank you note!

The rose colored cover plate is so pretty atop the snowflake patterned paper-like looking through an iron gate! Beautifully done.
