Papertrey October Bloghop

This is my second post for today if you are looking for the Perfect Presentation Post and Giveaway it is the next one.


It is time for another Papertrey Bloghop


This month the challenge says "it is dedicated to those that celebrate winter
holidays other than Christmas. We are to create a project that celebrates Hanukkah, Kwanzaa or some other winter holiday as we embrace everyone's beliefs in a celebration of diversity through paper crafting."

When I saw this challenge I was thrilled since Christmas usually gets the most attention. Since I am Jewish and celebrate Hanukkah I am always happy for it to get some recognition too so this was a perfect challenge for me. This is what I came up with

Dreidel is a game that you play during Hanukkah. I thought this Candy Box would be great to fill with Hanukkah Gelt (Chocolate Coins).
I also decided to make a video showing how I made the background paper and the rest of the box. If you have any questions let me know. I look forward to seeing what other holidays everyone is sharing today. As always thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great week!
