{Clearly Quick & Simple}
















OK---I just got the courage last night to post a link to the PTI June Blog Hop. I am a bit insecure about my abilities, but I have just decided---DO IT! What can it hurt!? So, here's my June Blog Hop "entry".

Since I only had a few minutes this morning, I decided I would make it simple. I'm sure there will some amazing folds and uses of transparencies tonight, but I just made a simple 4x4 card. The PTI products make everything look so good! Coordination is a beautiful thing!






I paper pieced the gift to make it look like wrapping paper.














Here's a close up of how it's "popped up" and I had to add a little bling---which looks like it doesn't match in this picture, but it does IRL! I know your time is short, so I'll just post the details below!

Thanks for looking and come back anytime~

Hey Kathleen,

Its Katie again, and yup, that's all I did. Follow the scor-pal directions for the nugget boxes. I just substituted a transparency for cardstock. A bit finicky, but once you get the nuggets in - it all looks good :)
