A few weeks ago I had my Stamp, Scrap & Create Retreat at my house for the weekend. It was tons of fun and I can’t wait to start planning a spring retreat.  One of my favorite projects was this cute trio of holiday boxes made with the Curvy Keepsake Die.  There is one for Halloween, one for Thanksgiving and one for Christmas.

curvy-box-trioI really love this die!  It is so easy to assemble these little boxes and you just need some adhesive to attach the two pieces together – I used Fast Fuse.  The little boxes are fun to decorate and there are already tons of ideas out there.  Here is a photo of some of the girls working on their boxes during the retreat –

retreat-curvy-box-tableThe Halloween box is fun – made from clear window sheets with a little tea light inside and a ghost hanging on the handle.

curvy-clear-ghostThe Thanksgiving box is a fun little pumpkin.  I used the lines from the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set to create the lines that would be grooves on a pumpkin.  And then we added leaves – stamped, die cut ones and a wood one.

curvy-thanks-pumpkinThe “boo to you” and “thankful” stamps are from the Good Greetings stamp set which a special hostess stamp set that you can earn through the end of October.  It has lots of fun little greetings in it for the holidays.  You need a $300 workshop/party to get this set for free!

And the Christmas one – or even just a winter holiday one – is just so pretty with the Lost Lagoon and silver.  And the cute little snowflake charm is a fun accent.
