Final Week of MMM GDT...

***A LITTLE PICTURE HEAVY...JUST SAYIN'!***

It is with great joy that I post this--I'm so very excited that I was asked to be the Guest Deezine Team member for November! :) I've had enormous amounts of fun--thank you, ladies!!! :)

I'm excited about this week's challenge!!! Our monthly theme is Christmas, and this week we're asking you to join with us and make/decorate a Christmas box. :) Mine is homemade and vintage looking and I love the way it turned out...

I have made my box out of coasters. I decorated each one and then punched holes in the corners and added eyelets with my Crop-a-dile. I am going to use it to put a candle in and take to my sweet next door neighbor as a Christmas gift. :)

Here are the pictures of THE BOX (sides, details, etc.)~










Sorry for the poor photo quality--I tried to find good lighting to no avail! :( Thanks for coming and taking a look! I hope you play along with us at Make My Monday! Merry stamping!!! :)
