Welcome to Day 7 of the Hanukkah Blog Hop! We are so excited to be able to share with you some wonderful Hanukkah related projects. We’ll be posting 2 projects a week on Sundays & Wednesdays until the first day of Hanukkah on December 9th! There are 4 of us participating so that is a total of 9 hop days for a total of 36 ideas!
Thank you to everyone who has visited these past 6 days of the hop. We hope you have enjoyed all the projects and found lots of inspiration! If this is your first visit, go back and visit Day 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6
Today I have a fun shaped card for you! Dreidels are the second most important Hanukkah symbol to me, but unfortunately Stampin’ Up does not have any current dreidel stamps. Instead, I decided to make a dreidel shaped card!
I started by building a template for the front of the card. I used a 3 1/4″ square for the body, and a 2 1/4″ square turned onto its point for the point. I glued these together and used them to trace on to my cardstock, which began as a 6 1/2″ x 5″ piece, folded down to 3 1/4″ x 5″. I used the modern label punch to make the handle. Depending on how much of this sticks up, you could get this in a regular envelope. Mine is too tall, but I’m okay with that. I glued the handle on the inside of the card, under the “Happy Hanukkah” layer.
Stamps: Jewish Celebrations
Ink: Daffodil Delight, Pacific Point, Tempting Turquoise
Paper: Pacific Point, Daffodil Delight, Whisper White
Other: Modern Label Punch
