PTI April 2015 Blog Hop - Plant a Seed

 It's planting season at my house. We received over 2" of rain yesterday so everything is so pretty today. Plants literally grew overnight. So it seems only fitting that PTI would grow at my house as well.

Did you order the pint size containers? They are sooooo cute. The challenge for this month's PTI blog hop is Navy paired with shades of pink! You can see the inspiration photo and see what everyone else made here.

I followed the lead of several of the PTI design team and painted my pencils with acrylic paint. It was easy and dried quickly so I could keep working.

Erin Lincoln also answered my SOS on the forum for adhering the paper wrap to the pint container. It works so WELL!

She said, "I have a nifty way to do that! I put double sided tape along the two side edges. Nothing on the top/bottom edges at all. And I leave a bit of an overhang of adhesive off the bottom of the die cut. Without removing the tape backing, I put the die cut in place against the container. Because no adhesive is exposed, you can move it around a bit to get perfect placement. When you have it where you want it and holding your die cut against the container to keep it in place, you peel the backing paper off your double sided tape at the overhang and pull it down and off. (Reminds me a bit of when magicians pull a tablecloth out from underneath dishes and the dishes stay on the table.) Do it to the other side. And then trim the overhang."

Happy Hopping everyone! Enjoy your weekend. ~Rhonda
