Creations by AR ‘Love is in the Air’ Customer Blog Hop

 Welcome to the Creations by AR 'Love is in the Air' Customer Blog hop. I am the last station on the hop and if you happen to come by here, please start on Lisa's to get hopping.

The theme of the hop is Valentine's Day and I chose the Paper Planter Freebie as my template. All instructions are included with this template which to me was a bonus.  I chose to do two planters since I wanted to showcase how they can be decorated differently.

I did not need a lot of tools since I needed only a scoring board, my pair of scissors and my printer. The rest of the supplies used for each template is listed below.

 For this one, I printed the template on Gina K Cherry Red Cardstock, scored and cut the template. I also chose to decorate the outside with some Martha Stewart Valentine's papers, added some adhesived heart ribbons on a roll and tied the corners with some red baker's twine.

For the second one, I chose to print the template directly on the Martha Stewart patterned paper and scored. Instead of punching the holes on the corners, I decided to hold the corners with some brown baker's twine and added some adhesived glittered ribbon on a roll for the borders.

ETA: I thought I had this picture here but I was wrong. My sincere apologies!
There will be one blog hop prize (a new, not-yet-released CbyAR template) randomly chosen from all comments. Please leave comments on each of our blogs and once you finish hopping, please visit the CbyAR Facebook page and leave a comment there as well - . Please 'Like' the CbyAR page, if you haven't already done so. Comments will be accepted through midnight Eastern time on Sunday, Feb 10. The blog hop winner will be announced on Mon., Feb. 11 on the CbyAR Facebook page as well as on Lisa's blog.

Such cute 'planters'. Mind you, I don't think the chocs would be around long enough for me to make boxes for them! LOL. Fun projects.

I don't know what looks yummier, your pretty planters or the chocolates!!! Thanks for showing two different and cute ways of using the baker's twine on the planters.

Thank you for sharing your pretty little boxes with us! They are wonderful for so many things!

I'm afraid many of us cannot participate because we are no longer using Facebook, though. It just isn't safe anymore.
