Happy Hanukkah!

It's the middle of Hanukkah and we thought we would give you a few examples of some fun Hanukkah projects you can make using the Merrakech line from Basic Grey. The colors in this line are perfect for Hanukkah decorations, gift packs and cards. Using the paper and sticker elements with a few odds and ends from around our scrap studio we've put together these four projects. To create the tussy mussy we used a premade cone form that you can find in the decoupage section of your local craft store. The candy "gelt" pillow box was created using the leftover clear packaging from Basic Grey ribbons. We used a 2" round scallop punch to create the base of the hanging tag on each piece. The Hanukkah stamp was stamped on white cardstock using Staz-on ink and then watercolor painted to coordinate with the Merrakech colors.
These projects are fun, fast and easy to make. Add a little color to your Hanukkah decorations!
