Time to Link Up for the Christmas Wrapping Challenge

It is that time again. Break out the wrapping paper and tape….let’s start Wrapping!

Who said that the best part of Christmas is the gifts and treats?  We all know that it is actually all about the cute wrapping!  Far from the dreadful messes of tangled tape and crinkled paper that my husband produces, we saw some truly incredible tutorials this week that will provide you great inspiration if you haven’t created your perfect wrapping presentation yet.  Let’s recap what we have seen so far….

First, we had this super cute litte Santa Box from
Kara at Happy Go Lucky

  Then, we had this amazingly beautiful and simple  DIY Gift Wrap Tutorial
from Imperfectly Polished

Finally, we “wrapped up” the week with this eco-friendly showcase fabric creation from
Alecia at Chicken Scratch NY

Eco Friendly Wrapping

Now before you link up this week take a stroll over to
Amanda’s blog at Kaleidoscope of Colors.

Kaleidoscope of Colors

She will be our guest judge this week and will be looking closely to see who
was naughty or nice so be nice for goodness sake!

So, come and “wow” us and inspire!

Happy Linking, my crafty friends!!!

Now let’s get on with the party!!!

Please remember that to be eligible to win this week’s challenge and giveaway, you must provide a link back to the challenge in your entry post. It’s easy–we have a button ready for you to insert into your post HERE. For additional challenge rules, please read below.

You’ll find the linkup for this week’s challenge at the end of this post, following the challenge rules. This challenge begins at 10 pm(MST) Wednesday, December 5th and ends at noon (MST) Friday, December 7th .

1. All entries for this challenge need to incorporate the challenge’s theme. We are not simply a linky party. We have a specific theme for each week. All submissions are competing to be the judge’s top pick. If your project does not incorporate the theme we will have to remove it.

2. When you enter the challenge, please enter the link to the specific post on your blog that relates to the project — not to your general blog. This will help when a year from now, for example, someone who visits the site can find your project directly.

3. The CSI Project button must be in your blog post. HERE are the buttons. This makes it easy for other people to come over and join in the challenge if they like – and for us to know that we have the correct entry in the challenge when we’re judging. And if you use an older post, please update it so it’s current. If you don’t want to update it, please add the button to that post and to the sidebar for the week of the contest. Thanks!

4. The project you submit must be your own project and something you have made. (It can be inspired by something someone else has done, but it must be your creation.)

5. We ask that you are a CSI follower or subscriber to win the prizes. The more followers the site has — the more giveaways we are able to host

6. If you enter a project into our challenge, we ask that you please leave comments on at least 2 other entries in the contest. Not only is it nice to do, but it’s a great way to meet new people and make new friends.

7. By entering, you give us permission to spotlight your projects – we will give you credit and link back to your blog. You are welcome to enter as many themed projects as you like! You also give us permission to add your name to our newsletter list. If you wish to unsubscribe you may do so at any time.

Be sure to listen to the first CSI Project Podcast called CSI Confidential, here. You can listen every week as we interview our guest judges, sponsors and experts on the challenges.

The CSI Project have a new Facebook page. Go here to “like” us.

Also, go here to learn how you can be involved in Giraffe Grins, a CSI Project charity.

If you haven’t registered for the Forum yet, go here.

So, Ready, steady….GO!
