This month our kit was created by Joyce...don't you just love this fun twist? It required a tweaked banner which Suzanne easily created for us. (Have no clue what I'm talking about? Check back to our first post in January here, it explains it all :) Joyce sent SO many supplies! Check out a taste of what was in our kit:
Look at all the goodies I was able to create!
And now a closer look. First I'll start with the 3 cards:
Next a wine bottle tag:
A gift tag:
And finally, a gift bag w/tag!
I loved the bright cheery colors we were given to work with, blue and yellow are a great combination! I've actually never made a Hanukkah card in my life, so this was a new (and fun) experience for me :)
Joyce not only sent the supply list, but she sent a little explanation of this holiday which I thought was very interesting, and that I would share it with you. From her note: "Chanukah, also spelled Hanukah or Hanukkah, is not a very important Jewish holiday, but it is a fun one, nevertheless. It celebrates the rededication of the temple in Jerusalem after it was attacked by the Greeks, and is also known as the festival of lights. It is normally celebrated by lighting candles on a Menorah, playing dreidel, and eating latkes (potato pancakes). And, of course, presents. In 2012, Chanukah starts the evening of Saturday, December 8th and ends the evening of Saturday December 16th.
