Mona Pendleton | Friday, November 27, 2009 @ 10:00 PM | ,

Good Morning Everyone! Thank you to all of those who played along with last week's Just Us Girls color challenge & for your support with my blog! This week, it is my turn to be the Hostess for the 9th JUGS challenge.

Are you ready for another 3-D Template Challenge?


'Tis the season of gift giving! With MANY Holidays right around the corner such as Kwanzaa, Hannakuh, Christmas, etc... the girls & I would like to see your best decorated holiday gift box/bag using ANY company's template of your choice or one created by you!

You don't need to own a template to play, here are a few links with FREE templates: Splitcoast Stampers and Papertrey Ink.

You can find ALL the inspirational JUGS DT examples & the challenge details over at Just Us Girls. Thanks for stopping by & be sure to visit ALL the DT girls blogs to see how they created their project! We look forward to all your custom holiday gift packaging! Be Sweet!

Here is my decorated Holiday gift box:

I used the My Timeless Fold N' Go template designed by the Uber talented Lauren Meader:

I love gift sets especially this time of the year!I made a coordinating card :) For sketch inspiration, I used Kazan's fun sketch #40, 2S4Y40. From a close-up view, you can see that BOTH my gift box & card are 3-D! Definitely making this a hand deliverable set :)

Blog Candy: Link your creation up on the JUGS site in the Mr Linky to be entered for a chance to win the little offering from me pictured below! I made a "petite" sized Fold N' Go gift box to hold some ornament tags & embellishments along with a few other goodies that I would like to share and for the opportunity to be the next Chic of the Week!! Show us your best Holiday decorated gift box/bag made from a template for that special someone and don't forget to provide us with a DIRECT link on your blog or gallery to our Mr. Linky.
