November Blog Hop Challenge

By November 16, 2013General


The November Blog Hop is not taking place until November 25th, but we thought we would share the challenge as well as the inspiration photos here to give you a head start.

A day dedicated to seeking inspiration through projects utilizing Papertrey Ink products.   This event allows all of our customers who enjoy sharing inspiration & artwork with their peers do so through their personal blogs.


The actual Blog Hop will take place on November 25th, beginning @ 10 am EST.

If you have done any holiday shopping yet, you might have noticed that miniature holiday houses are making appearances everywhere!  Whether it be as an ornament, a gift tag or mantel decor, they are popping up everywhere.  We have provided you with a very simple printable template below so you can create your own holiday house.  Feel free to alter it in any way: add windows or doors, additions, glitter, trees, garland, mica flakes, artificial snow, woodland animals or whatever else you can dresm up!  You can even display your house in a unique way such as on a cake stand, nestled in a wreath or in a glass dome!  We are looking forward to all of your amazing house creations!

    Thank you for the free template, Nichole, – this is going to be so fun! I still have a little birdhouse that I created using one of your older templates and I hang it on our Christmas tree every year. I [heart] that little birdhouse and I’m so looking forward to using your new template to make a little house:)

    Hi Nichole,

    Just wanted to let you know that the proper link for the house village no. 2 is…

    This glittered Christmas village by Livy of “A Field Journal” was made from cereal boxes, bottle-brush trees and glitter and she shared a few of her techniques. There are lot more pictures to see and be inspired.

    I think I am the only one ( perhaps stemming from
    my “fear” of Oragami?) that doesn’t get the
    line of directions. I see how big you cut the
    initial rectangle and where you score it in the middle,
    but then there are other lines that I am unclear
    about! Is it just me?- Probably! Really want to try
    this gorgeous house but I need more directions
    please. the dotted lines are lines that
    you fold .. but could you please give me all the steps.
    I have no natural savvy.. sorry! thank you!
