PCS Treasure Chest Blog Hop

Hi Everyone, Welcome to the Paper Crafters Sampler blop hop. This month's issue is titled Shore Thing, and this treasure chest template is included in the issue.

If you are following the hop, you have arrived from Kelly's blog. Didn't you love her butterfly version of the chest? I've created a ship chest here, filled with items every ship captain needs.

Necessary ship accessories include a rolled up captain's log, a compass mounted on a chipboard world map, a rolled up length of rope twine, and an anchor covered in Crystal Effects.

The chest hinge was reinforced with Word Window punch-outs.

If you would like to sign up for this month's issue and get a copy of this template, go to Paper Crafters Sampler. Next along our little hop is our fearless leader, Melanie. Her projects are always fabulous! Enjoy the trip!

Your attention to detail is amazing. The cord around the anchor and the double layered circles using the spinner. Great use of the window punch for hinges!
