A Perfectly Odd Hop

PPChop (1)

Welcome to my stop on our Perfectly Odd hop where Perfect Papercrafting and Some Odd Girl stamps have gotten together to bring you some fun projects and inspiration. You should have arrived from Roxie’s blog but if you just love me and came by today, hop over to the Some Odd Girl blog to start at the beginning. 


For my stop today I made a cute lil holiday tag using the Perfect Tools Ruler, a plain ol manilla shipping tag, some scraps, a Holideer, a clear stamp set from Some Odd Girl stamps. 

I wanted some patterned stripes for my tag and I used the ruler and my Xacto knife to have at that poor tag…


After that it was just a matter of layering my scraps behind the cut outs (I just flipped the tag over to hide my marks) and VIOLA!

The non-slip grippy on the ruler (the orange part in the middle pushes down and has the non-slip) made this really easy!


This blog hop runs thru November 17th, be sure to comment at EVERY stop along the way and you’ll be eligible to win one of TWO prize packs that include one of these tools and a stamp set of your choice!

Your next stop is Jenny’s blog.

I hope you enjoy our little co-hop and come away with some fabulous inspiration!

    Kristy, Wow! You’ve just given me another technique I’ve got to use on a project. Why didn’t I think of it. Your tag is amazing as is your coloring. Great hop so far.

  • Jennyfer L says:

    Wow! You used the ruler to make the slits and here I thought it was a die! Ha, this is so well colored Kristy;-)

    • Kristy says:

      now that you say that (which I never thought of), it probably would have been way easier to just cut slits instead of the whole shape out. lol dang it 🙂
