Home for the Holidays: Day 1

Holiday Greetings!  Can you believe that the holidays are creeping up on us already?  While I am excited, I have to say that I am not sure that I am ready for the scramble that comes with the holidays.  Of course, many of my gifts will be handmade.  Something tells me, that some of yours will be too, so the Verve Divas have come up with some wonderful creations for this month's Project Parade...

Home for the Holidays: 
Gifts, Decor and More!

For my project, I was inspired a little by one of my older projects: the Mini Pizza Box and one of the newer ones from SCS' Holiday Tutorial Blitz: The Top Note Box.  I basically created a Mini Box with different dimensions and then put a scalloped rectangle on the top and bottom, much like the Top Note Box.  The great thing about the box is that the base, scalloped rectangles and the navy blue circle mats all came from ONE piece of paper.  The rest of the box took less than one sheet of each color used, making the paper cost for the box under $1!  Depending on your embellishments, you could easily make this for under $2, like I did!!  I don't think that you can get a fancy gift sack for that these days! Any of the new Verve sets could be used to create a fun gift card box.  This particular one uses Frosty Flakes.



Here's the template...

So, now it's your turn! We'd love for you to play along with us and show us your homemade goodies for the upcoming giving season! Verve stamps are not required, but if you've got 'em, why not show 'em a little love? ;)

And, as with all of our project parades, we've got prizes!
To enter, just link up your Home for the Holidays creation to the Mr. Linky widget below before midnight MST on Thursday, November 26. One lucky stamper will win a $30 gift certificate to the Verve Store. And for another chance to win, be sure to give the Divas a little shout out in the comments as they parade their fabulous creations inspired by this month's theme. One lucky commenter during the course of the parade (Nov 11 - 25) will win their choice of any Verve set.

Happy stamping!
We can't wait to see what you create!
