I’m tickled to be joining the Paper Crafts magazine crew for a blog hop today in celebration of Holiday Cards & More.
If you haven’t heard of the issue yet, here’s a briefer on it. It’s an all-new go-to guide of sorts of holiday cards, packages and other cool craft projects from Paper Crafts magazine. You can get it craft and book stores around the country. And you can find it online through the Paper Crafts online store by clicking here.
Twelve crafters (me, included) were challenged to make a project using one of the downloadable patterns from the special issue.
I was asked to make something with the box pattern from the cool gift box made by Leslie Webster. You can find the pattern here.
I went a little different direction that Leslie in making a traditional box. I made two boxes with her pattern. I stacked them together and decorated them up like a snowman!
If you make one like this, be sure to use buttons and not brads. I originally tried to use brads for the buttons on his chest. Let’s just say it didn’t quite work when it came to opening the bottom box. 😉
Be sure to leave a comment for me today here on my blog. I’ll be giving someone picked at random a copy of Holiday Cards & More.
That’s because the Paper Crafts editors will pick someone at random from all the comments made along the hop to receive 12 Christmas collections of paper crafting goodies! Woooooo! 🙂
That’s all for now.
Be back again soon.
