PHP and Xyron blog hop

 Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to day 3 of our Paper House Productions and Xyron mutual blog hop.
Get ready to travel around the world with our design team and Xyron!

Starting on Monday May 19th, each day, for five days, we will feature two travel themed projects on our blog ( from our talented design team and we'll give away some great products! AND, when you HOP over to Xyron's blog (, they will feature travel themed projects using your favorite Paper House Travel Collections and give away great products too!

All you have to do is stop by the blogs, leave a comment and you could win!

And here are my projects made for this hop.
First is this recycled altered box, made as this kind of " survive the flight  box". This is the box you make for those who can't afford the First class flight (everyone I know). You put there  the eye covers, ear pugs, some Aspirin pills, gum, tooth brush and small paste and a note... I really think we can do it for our loved who  travel  a lot (like me, but I never got this kind of a present). So I used this Map paper to cover this chipboard box from all sides, using Xyron Permanent Adhesive Glue stick. This is  the only glue stick I  loved to work with: really permanent and then this agronomic triangle shape is so nice and  comfortable to use.

The Bon Voyage die cut is a very tricky one to glue over the cover. But wait! This Xyron 3'' Sticker Maker was a blast! I made the die cut and then added the adhesive using this tool and it was amazing! 2 seconds and a permanent glue was added only over the cut piece.
The stamped Bon Voyage sentiment  from  Inspired by Stamping company  
 Big Sayings in French #2 over the box was glued using another Xyron Sticker Maker, this time I used this X shaped sticker maker for the thinner surface and it was a perfect experience.

 And now for my other creations for the hop.
The first is a travel tag, made with the very same  PHP paper, 3d Travel stickers and some washi and wood veneer shapes. I glued everything with Xyron permanent tape runner and used STICK  for the rolled " maps" and all embellishments.

And this last one is another travel tag, made with PHP Duck hunting collection, both papers and cardstock stickers.The stamped  flags were stamped with  Inspired by Stamping  Background  Basic #2 set of stamps  and PHP CANVAS sticker sentiment. Again, I used Xyron tape runner for the paper and stick glue for the embellishments.
