Make it Pretty!

Dispel the Monday blues with this Monday morning to Sunday night challenge.

Happy Thanksgiving Week!

I know you are all busy prepping for the "feast" and for "Black Friday" shopping...but I'm sure you will need a "hostess" gift or treat boxes! This week's challenge is for you to make a box (any style), bag, basket, or bag topper.

For a couple of my friends, I made an Advent "Calendar" and a 12 days of Christmas gifts. I wanted to make sure that their presents could be displayed but not just "wrapped" in ordinary paper. I made match boxes of different sizes, envelope style boxes, paper bags, milk cartons, treat boxes, octagon boxes, envelopes, and paper purses to but their presents it.

I hope you have as much fun making "pretty" packaging and I can't wait to see what you packages look like! I will have a prize for one of the lucky participants!

Very cool projects Trudi. Thank you for hosting. I'm in FL this week, so I won't be playing but will be checking in.

Wow! Trudi, you went all out. This will take some thought. Nope, never mind, I'm giving cash to my niece and nephew for Christmas, so will make something to put it in. Perfect!

Trudi, what a fun challenge. We are doing secret Santa exchanges at the office, so this will encourage me to wrap them in creative ways!

All of my gifts are going to be gift cards this Holiday Season this way everyone will get what they want and I won't have to fight with traffic and Vince is happy about that...
So I made decorated envelopes...I hope this counts!
