Happy Friday. I hope your week has been a good one and if you live in the East you made it through Sandy without any problems. My heart goes out to everyone that was affected by the storm. We have had our share of bad weather here but we have never experienced something like that. Unfortunately weather is something we can't control though hopefully with time and help things will get back to some kind of normal for them soon.
Now that Halloween is over Christmas and Hanukkah will be here before we know it. This year Hanukkah starts on Sunday December 9th. I have made quite a few Hanukkah items in past years but I still wanted to make a dreidel box. When I saw this template designed by Lauren Meader last year I was going to make one then but never got a chance. I finally had some time this week though and this is what I came up with.
I started by cutting out the base of the box from white cardstock. After that I printed out the damask pattern from Amy Jaz Designs Very Merry Christmas digital paper pack from last year. The symbols were cut from Enchanted Evening Cardstock, embossed with the linen impression plate then added with foam tape to give them some dimension I made the tag in Silhouette Studio then stamped the Happy Hanukkah Sentiment from the new Menorah Medley Set. Finally I tied it together with Enchanted Evening Saddle Stitched Ribbon and tied it in a bow. This is a good size box and would make a great gift filled with some Hanukkah Candy/Gelt and a gift card. That's all for now. I hope your weekend is a good one.
