Christmas Stampin' All Year Long

Wow - Friday again?!
This week just flew by! Today we've got a new challenge for you over at CSAYL. Since it's the first challenge of the month, it's a gift set challenge.

This week we want you to make a keepsake box and matching card.
You can check out Maria's great tutorial right here. This box was SO easy to make!
The kids and I have been having a blast making uber-cute soaps this summer. We're planning on giving some of them as holiday gifts and this box will be perfect!

I had the matching card and box both finished in about thirty minutes! Using the pre-printed holiday embellishments was a huge time saver. To embellish the box, I used some leaves cut with an SU punch and some jewels. And everything looks good with a big fat bow tied around it!Easy-peasy! I hope you give it a try!

Hop on over to the CSAYL blog to see what the rest of the team came up with and to leave us a link to your project. Have a super weekend.
