Paper Piecings by Nikki DT Christmas Blog Hop

Welcome to the PPbN DT Christmas Blog Hop. The emphasis of our hop today is to show you how you can create practical gifts for the season using PPbN patterns. Hopefully you leaped over from Linda but if you stumbled on our hop go to Nikki - she's our blog hostess!

Mama LoveBug up first today. I love PPbN patterns to make unique and useful gifts. Here's my perpetual calendar - a gift that keeps on giving - instead of throwing away your calendar each year before you transfer all the important dates in your life - make one calendar that will last a lifetime. The first pattern collection I used is Gingys With Milk and Cookies

On November 4 I posted another picture and write up of the soon to retire PPbN Baking Memories Perpetual Calendar

Here's a picture of the inside of the calendar

Hope you enjoyed the calendar idea.

Kimi here... For my project I used the "Santa & Friends Cutting File"  to add a little something to this adorable paper and chipboard Stocking Ornament!!! Isn't it cute? I also added the Christmas Past Rumple Ribbons as the hanger part of the ornament! I can see me making a lot of paper ornaments for our tree!!! Hope you enjoy my project!!!

Remember, no matter how you piece your paper and rumple your ribbon, have fun with it.......cyberhugs......LoveBug Creations

Now swing over to see Amanda and her DT offering today.

Love both of your projects. The calenders are a great idea, perfect for the stocking stuffers. The fronts are so fun and festive - great job.

Love the ornaments!!! I will have to make some for my tree - it is doesn't have a whole lot of homemade ornaments this year.

Thank you for the inspiration.

Love the perpetual calendar idea. I have a little book similar to this I bought years ago, and have never seen them anywhere since. It's a great idea to make your own!

The stocking ornament is adorable! I think maybe next year Kaylee and Nana will try some ornaments. The wall hanging was enough excitement this year! lol
