Blog Hop Monday!

It's super, hybrid blog hop day! So if you are in the mood for a ton of great hybrid ideas using Kelleigh Ratzlaff Designs' fabulous templates you are in for a great day. Grab a cup of coffee and come hop along! Did I mention there's a prize? Make sure you hop to Kelleigh's blog and comment on which of the projects you liked the best (vote for me!). You can win a gift card to Kelleigh's store at the Digichick and I could win too!

My project features Kelleigh's Toolbox Template (The Digichick) turned into a makeup box party favor. I mixed it up a bit and made it all girly!

I used Traci Reed's and Meghan Mullen's Girl's Day Out (Sweet Shoppe) kit to decorate the box. To make this easier on me - I opened Kelleigh's template in Photoshop Elements and colored the box black. To figure out how big to make each of the paper pieces I used the shape tool to make a template for each section by making the box just smaller than the actual box. I then moved all the pieces to a printing sheet. I printed on glossy presentation paper and trimmed. I pasted the decorative pieces on to the box before assembly (makes things much easier!!! I added a simple ribbon handle, a button and some little bows on the side to make this extra girly. What little girl wouldn't love this as a birthday favor??

For the invite I used my Cricut to cut the 4" scalloped paper for the background. Everything else was done in Elements.

Here's a few close up shots for you.

For more awesome hybrid ideas hop along and check out a few more cool projects on the blogs below.
