3D Project (Blog Hop)


Welcome to the November 2018 Blog Hop with Stampin’ Pretty Pals. Holiday cards are done. It’s time to start on gifts and gift wrap. Let the Stampin’ Pretty Pals inspire you with “Anything But A Card” today.


You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

I am doing this Blog Post a little differently.  As this is a project, I thought it would be best if you had the instructions.  We often make gift holders for cocoa and I thought we need to recognize the tea lovers.  So here is a cute quick tea holder which can be used for any time other than Christmas.  Just pick your favorite stamp set and create.
