Simply Homemade

Good morning! Wow, has it been cold here in Northeastern Ohio the past few days. Perfect weather for staying in a nice warm house and crafting. However, my project for the sisterhood challenge was made at Darlene's on a nice warm day. This week's challenge is titled "Simply Homemade." My project is a gift box made with red cardstock. The image is one of K & Company's die cut, that Darlene gave me layered on green cardstock. The band around the box and the background designer papers are from DCWV's Christmas Stack.  The snowflakes were punched out of white cardstock using the Martha Stewart snowflake punch. This box would be perfect for a bracelet, necklace or other small item for that special person.

Now, put on those thinking caps and create a homemade item (a card, box or embellishment) and join in the challenge. For more inspiration, check out the projects created by the sisters.

I have entered this project in the following challenges on the Paper Playful Blog.
