Home for the Holidays!


Welcome to the Home for the Holidays Blog Hop with the AR Girls! The House Box and Ornament template is fast and easy to make. Make it to hang on the tree, use as a gift box, or put a battery-operated tea light inside for a dramatic effect!

Every Christmas, our street goes all out with holiday decorations. This year our theme is "Candy Cane Lane" -- and this is my paper version of it!  (I'll try to take some photos of our street when it's all decked out and I'll share it with you!)  Below are samples of some of the ways to use this House Box and Ornament template.

Here it is as an ornament...

With faux tea light inside...

A gift box...

As you can see in the photo above, I've designed it like a "matchbox" where you slide the box inside the house shell.

We will be GIVING AWAY this new template to THREE CRAFTERS! All you have to do to enter the drawing is to leave comments! There will be...

... One winner from the Creations by AR FaceBook Page
... One winner from the Creations by AR Paper Craft Planet Group
... One winner from comments left on the AR Girls' blogs:

Amy Park
Julia Aston

Lori Brown
Lyn Bernatovich
Magdalena Cortez
Patti J. Gilliam

Comments will be accepted until midnight on November 18.  The three winners will be announced on November 19.

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you've enjoyed my version of "Candy Cane Lane"!
