Magnolia-licious Holiday Blog Hop


Happy November, Friends! Today Magnolia-licious is celebrating our traditional Holiday Blog Hop with 2 chances to win a $50 gift certificate from Magnolia-licious. Instructions and details are at the end of this post.


If you arrived here from Barbara GR’s blog…then you are on the right track. If you need to start at the beginning all you have to do is go back to the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog and the post line up is available there.

By the way, have you seen the Disney movie Frozen that was released last year about this time? I loved it and watched it with our grandson in our home theater when it was published on DVD. I swear, he picks up the lyrics to every song in the movie so quickly…LOL

Honestly, this Holiday Gift Basket was created last spring with Frozen in mind and it was featured in CardMaker Magazine’s 2014 Holiday Special Issue this season…on NEWS stands now. I am so proud…hehehe.

As one of the “Pretty Packaging” section’s projects of the Magazine’s holiday spread I created an original design I call the Pleated Holiday Gift Basket.


I developed my basket with a pleat/mountain valley type fold technique. If you are interested in the instructions please email me and I will send them to you.


I also created a keepsake ornament that goes with the gift basket using the same supplies but adding a few details.


The ornament is a shaker design and so simple to assemble. I used some inspiring ideas from Papertrey Ink for my ornament.


Here’s a shot from the back of the basket. I included Magnolia snowflake die cuts for my Frozen theme.

********************

OK, now for the fun HOP part…you have 2 chances to win a $50 Gift Certificate from the Magnolia-licious store.
  1. Each member from the design team has published a hidden number that you must collect and add the sum from the total DT blogs for a chance to win. Just email me at cathylee.co@gmail.com with the sum total and you will be entered in the random draw of correct responses I receive.
  2. Enter a project (anything but a card) in the Hop challenge and you will have a chance to win if your project is the random winner of all entries. You will have the entire month of November to enter a project.

Also you must do the following to be entered for a chance to win either of the prizes:
  • Like us on our Magnolia-licious Facebook Fan Page
  • Leave a comment on each of the DT’s Blog Hop posts.
  • At the end of the Hop return to the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog and leave a comment for a chance to win a prize. 

All comments will also be eligible for the Weekly Comment prize drawn on "W"ednesday.



********************

My hidden number is **0**; that is a big goose egg or also known as zero...LOL

Your next stop on the hop is the lovely and talented…


Thanks for following along on our Holiday Hop. Have a great week.

Hugz,
