At minimum, you must use at least one of the templates below, somehow use paper in your project, and give it a holiday twist for this time of year (November/December).  You can choose any holiday from November or December -- religious, national, secular or even unofficial! 

So by unofficial holiday you mean we can pick from the lists on these site too?

http://www.wellcat.com/holiday.html
http://www.woodlands-junior.kent.sch.uk/customs/calendars/index.htm

I didn't look through the lists in their entirety, but any holiday, November to December, a-okay.  "Unofficial" should encompass all of those crazy oddball holidays!  If those are the lists used as examples in the Monthly Odd Holiday Swaps, you hit the nail on the head!  Have fun! Grin
yuppers! that's where I got em from!  Whoooohoooo!!!!!  The ideas flowwwwww! Cheesy

so excited to start this challenge  Grin

one question though..
for the flower template are there any specific directions?  I printed it out, and in the picture it's like poofy and 3-D but in the template it's just 2 size flower cutouts...
what do I doooooooo?  Tongue

if i'm correct, you print the page, And cut out the bottom four templates. The first template on top is for an example. Do NOT cut it out. Then take them, and slightly fold  the petals up. Then place them on top of each other, biggest on the bottom to smallest, with each one having it's petals between the petals beneath it. If you don't know what I mean, look at the flower you did not cut out.

It should be poofy...

For the first time, I actually know EXACTLY what I'm going to do for this challenge! I don't know if it'll blow everyone away, but it'll sure look great as part of my home decor!

One question, though: I don't have a printer, so I'll have to trace the templates off of my laptop screen (ghettoooooo, I know). This still counts, right? I'll still be using the template; I just don't have the ability to print it.

Yay!

No directions are provided (they are in the book, though, of course!), so feel free to use the templates in whatever manner you'd like.

Ooooh, I'm intrigued!  You guys always tease me with these posts.

That's totally fine!  Creative freedom. Cheesy

It's working well so far though.

I have the same problem with mine Tongue
I used almost a whole bottle of sizing just to get the stupid wrinkles out of parts of it Embarrassed and now my whole sewing room reeks.  Sadly, Vermont weather doesn't permit airing out either Sad haha but it's definitely worth it, even if I don't win.  I can now say I intimately know my iron Wink haha
