Xyron and Doodlebug Blog Hop - Day Four and a Giveaway!

It is beginning to look a lot like Christmas on the Xyron/Doodlebug blog hop today!  We've got some fun holiday projects featuring the Home for the Holidays collections - prepare to be inspired!

We can't stop talking about how much we love upcycling - and today on her blog Yvonne Yam shows us how to turn an old cardboard tea box in to the perfect Christmas gift box. This will make you look at your trash in a whole new way!

You can't think about Christmas without thinking about Christmas cards - and Gini Cagle gets us in the holiday mood with this darling card!

This could fall under the category of most ingenious home decor project ever - Van Nguyen created this super cute shadow box, but used Xyron Magnet Tape so she can change out the photos and embellishments throughout the year!  On her blog today she shows us how - what a great gift idea for someone on your list!

  46. I have said it before and I am saying it again I love Doodlebug Designs and Xyron!!! As the days go by I am so impressed daily by the gorgeous projects both companies make from their DT members. I do recycle stuff, I have 2 big tubs in the basement with all kinds of boxes and canisters. I can't wait until I get my hands on some new Doodlebug Christmas papers and embellishments. Thank you for all the inspiration I find on your blogs every day. Your the best!
