Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Back To School Blog Hop!

  • Welcome to the PPPR "Back to School" Blog Hop. 
    If you came here from Ana Maria's Blog you're in the right place.  If you just stumbled upon this post and would like to start from the beginning, please visit Lisa's blog.
    This months Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons blog hop theme is "Back to School". The DT has been working on school themed projects using Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons files.  
    I decided to do a treat box for either s student or a teacher.
    I started by printing some notebook paper from the Man O Man paper Pack 1 for my box cover.
    I then cut and paper pieced the super fun school bus from the Back to School cutting file set. The apple in the middle of my sentiment circle is also cut from the Back to School.
    For the inside treats, I covered chocolate nuggets with some printed school bus wrappers that I found here. I used a simple black marker to draw on the wheels on each side of the candies.
    The box, scallop and sentiment are all from My Creative Time.  

    Now before you hop on..I need to let you in on all the blog candy you could win.
