Just Us Girls Template Challenge

Happy Saturday, everyone! Today, the Just Us Girls team has a template challenge for you. You can use a template or create one of your own...we just want to see some kind of box/bag you might use for the holiday season. And it can be any holiday! Here's mine.

I went to an old favorite....box in a bag from Splitcoast stampers. I remember the first time I made one, I was amazed at how petite it was, but yet it holds a lot! I used a retired dp from SU called Holiday Traditions. That was one of my favorites because of the chocolate color I LOVE!! I paired it with Pink Pirouette (also retired). The bottom was created with a Martha Stewart punch and the handle on top is SU's round tab punch. The snowflakes were punched with another MS punch in the pink and Riding Hood Red (I'm using a lot of retired paper!). It's such an easy but eye-catching bag to make!

We all need some kind of packaging this holiday, so why not join our challenge? Mona has some great blog candy to give away too! Just link your direct post to Mr. Linky on the
JUGs blog and use the code JUGS9 if you post to an online gallery. Be sure to stop by the JUGS blog and see what the girls have created. It would also be nice to leave some love on their personal blogs, as well!

Thanks for stopping in today and enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Gorgeous Lisa! I love the chocolate DP paired with the frilly lace edge punch and layered snowflake accents. I have got to get that snowflake punch! You just always have the best embellies!

What FABULOUS gift packaging Lisa! The scalloped bottom is so very pretty & those shimmery brads in the center of your snowflake embellis look so nice! Great job with the template challenge & your photography is awesome!

Lisa this is STUNNING! I love the patterned paper you used...the colors are so striking and elegant! They go beautifully with the red and pink snowflakes and the cute ribbon and bottom pink layer. My jaw dropped when I saw it in the Yahoo group! GORGEOUS! Also love how you staged the photo so simple yet effective. I really need to work on staging ;]

Love these boxes and this one is a beauty! Way to use up retired paper! I have a tendancy to hoard it!
