It's December and I hope you are starting to feel the Christmas spirit!! One thing I love about this time of year is the hand-made and home-made feel of Christmas. Everyone seems to enjoy making ornaments or decorations for their home, baking, and just decorating for the holidays, in general. Some of the Ladies at Club CK decided to share our Handmade Holiday with you and I hope you will enjoy hopping along with us for a ton of neat ideas. You should have arrived here from Cassie's BLOG. If you didn't, go back to Amanda's BLOG, Love.Joy.Paper and start out from the beginning of the Hop.
I decided to create a cute little project that I saw on Pinterest...and yes, I do actually make some of the ideas that I pin on my boards!! :)
These are the cute little kraft boxes that you can buy in Hobby Lobby or other local crafts stores. The great thing about these boxes, is that it offers a blank canvas for creating. I used them to spell out the word "JOY" and added it to the decor on my fireplace mantle. The first thing I did was ink a little around the edges of the top of the box. Then measure your boxes and cut a piece of paper to fit. I used Mod Podge to adhere my paper to the boxes. Next you can cut out the letters to spell out the word you would like to use or if you don't have a die cut machine, letter stickers would work great also. Adhere your letters to the paper and then ink around the edges. Go over once again with a second layer of Mod Podge to seal everything. I added a button to the center of my "O" and tied two of the boxes with ribbon, for a little extra flair!! :)
Now, for the fun part!! I will be giving away the materials to make the word "JOY", as pictured above, to one lucky winner! If you are new to my Blog become a follower and let me know, by commenting below. I would also love to hear from all of you and find out your favorite Christmas movie or TV show.
