Project Parade: Day One

Welcome to the November Project Parade: ABC {Anything But A Card}.  The holidays are knocking and Verve has great stamps for all of those ABC Projects {and all those cards that you swore would be done by  now!}.  I have really enjoyed playing with the Snowflake Splendor set and I decided to use it for this project.  I chose to do a coaster box because I wanted something that could hold a small gift.  The directions for this box may be found HERE.

 
 


Wanna play along? All you have to do is create Anything but a Card and link up your creation to this post by noon on Friday, December 5th. You don’t have to use Verve Stamps, but if you have ‘em, why not give ‘em some love? If you upload to SCS, please use the keyword VVPP08 so we don’t miss your eye candy! A random participant will be drawn on December 6th to receive $15 in Verve Bucks to spend at the Verve Stamps store! Good luck and have fun!

  3. Oh I love the Project Parade! I'm not quite as creative as some of you but I did make a giftcard holder (that's not a card right?) and a matching little bucket for a friend. You can see it here http://happinessisus.blogspot.com/
    Thanks for the challenge and I might try and sneak in another one!!
