Sweet Shop Blog Hop ...It's Today....

Welcome to Paper Creations and the CookingWithCricut.com Sweetshop Blog Hop!  If you’ve never enjoyed a blog hop before, it’s where you ‘hop’ between blogs following a chain of links, with each blog in the chain posting something exciting for the event! There will even be some great blog candy (giveaways) to win along the way! More on that in a moment!
If you've come from visitingRoberta at http://www.txscrappermom.blogspot.com/ , you're in the right place! If you've just happened across my blog and would like to play along with our fun hop, you can go to CookingWithCricut.com and start at the beginning. Go HERE..
With Valentine’s Day just a few days away we are sharing some wonderful ideas and inspiration for your viewing and crafting pleasure!  Each Design Team member will be featuring an original project each day (Saturday & Sunday) made especially for this hop. Make sure to check out each DT member's blog and collect the special letter there.   There will be prizes along the way at our DT members' blogs, AND there will be some nice PRIZES with a few different ways to win at CookingWithCricut.com! 
So this is one of my projects.....
This is a basket of flowers, perfect for anyone, or just table decorations...
First to make the basket you need a 12x12 piece of heavy card stock, Then you will need to use your scor-pal and score in both directions at 4" and 8" so you end up with ((9)) 4" squares.  Next on 2 opposite sides cut to center score, this will allow you to bring up sides and shape into basket. Then just decorate as you want to. These baskets can be made smaller, but not larger. Just be sure to keep the dimensions.
.Next I took a 2 1/2" wide strip of paper, and using Martha Stewart border punch I punched both side, added a second strip of white and attached as the handle, added a few rose blooms to the top of the handle. 
  Next step
Glued some lace around the basket, added a floral piece of foam to the inside to hold my flowers, and your good to go.
Then it is time to start making those oh so wonderful flowers... I have used all the flower files from our trusty leader, Melin, and all her little tips for making beautiful flowers... You can find that info HERE.
Once the flowers were all rolled and arranged, I made some cute paper piecings, also designed by Melin, and those files are available HERE .  
Next I cut a Love U bingo card, and also added to my flower basket.... And that's about it...



All of the flowers, were created with paper, and my cricut and are they addicting.. Come back tomorrow for day 2 of the blog hop and register to win . Also  be sure to check those sites I gave you, as you will not want to miss Melin's tips and tricks for making these beautiful blooms....Tomorrow is part 2 of the ultimate V-Day gifts..
Now onto the fun, games and give away's...
1. My secret letter, that you need to complete the phrase is ((P))....Once you have all the letters from each blog collected, unscramble the letters, and submit your answer to the CWC blog...
2.I am also going to be giving away, either a digi stamp or cutting file, all you have to do to win this is leave me a comment today and tomorrow,and become a follower...
Here is the file you can win.....
 I will also be giving away, the cutting files for all the flowers, and leaves.SO leave a comment both days, become a follower, and win...I will also be posting free files tomorrow for all of you.
