Unofficial Crop Chocolate Blog Hop

Hi everyone!  Welcome to the  Unofficial Crop Chocolate Blog Hop.  Some of the talented crafters who love Crop Chocolate decided to get together for a fun hop.  In case you don't know about Crop Chocolate....it is a website that offers a couple of really great deals on awesome paper crafting supplies each day.  What I love about it, is that you can hold all the items in your cart until your ready to check out.
For my project today, I used the Dots and Stripes paper from Echo Park that I recently purchased from CC.


I cut the starts from the the Gypsy cartridge and the hexagon shapes from Winter Woodland.  I used hide contours to hide all the snowflake cuts.  This font is from Nate's ABCs.

I also made this fun ribbon topiary....well it's supposed to be a topiary but I left off the stick.  I just hot glued it to the terra cotta pot.  I've found several tutuorial on the web and picked up all the stuff at Michaels yesterday.  All you do in cut strips of ribbon at 4" and the make the strips in to circles....I glued the ends together to form the circle.  Then you use straight pins to stick them to the styrofoam ball.  Really simple and fun to make.

Your next stop on the hop is http://engineeringmemories.blogspot.com/.  Make sure to visit all the stops on the hop for a chance to win some candy from our hostess.

I also have some of my Crop Chocolate goodies to share.  Make sure your a follower and leave a comment on this post for a chance to win some Alphas, Stickers and some paper.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
