CTMH Spotlight Blog Hop - October


Welcome to the CTMH Spotlight Blog Hop for October!
This month we are highlighting Christmas project ideas.
You should have arrived from Melinda's blog.
But this is a circular hop, so it doesn't matter where you start along the hop.  ;)

For my Christmas project I decided to create a card box, using my A2 card box template, with our new Christmas paper called Mistletoe and mixing it with the Creative Basics Mistletoe Collection. 

I created a decoration to add to the front of my card box by layering some different Dimensional Elements, and using some natural hemp for the string/bow.  I then glued them onto a circular piece of black cardstock.



I also made a card to go inside the box.  Now I just need to make about 5-7 more of them to fill it.... lol




I hope you enjoyed your short visit, and be sure to continue along on the hop by heading over to the next blog to check out Wendy's fab ornaments. 

Happy creating!  :)

What a pretty box! Isn't it nice to be in a hobby where we can create our own gift wrapping?!
