Watch us Wednesday with Jennifer Cuthbertson: Card Gift Set Tutorial

Hello friends, Jennifer here to show you how to make a set of notecards with wonderful supplies from The Kraft Outlet! This week's challenge is to make "Christmas Gifts" and as a cardmaker, I love to give out sets of cards for others to use.



I started out with the lunch bag kraft notecard/envelope set chose some coordinating journaling cards, hemp cord, chipboard banners, ruler twill ribbon, and chipboard milk bottle caps.



I chose the Fly a Kite collection papers from October afternoon and cut them to fit the notecards.



I wanted the banners to coordinate so I traced them onto coordinating papers, cut, out and adhered to the chipboard pieces.



After the banners were covered, I glued them to the hemp twine.


Once I cut the papers down to size, I adhered them to the notecards and glued the ruler ribbon over the seam.


I stamped the journaling cards with some versatile sentiments.




I tied the chipboard milk caps with the hemp cord, layed out the elements, and fastened everything down.



I plan to give this set to my mother-in-law and think she'll love them and find good uses for all of them!

Don't forget that there is still time to join our "Christmas Gifts" challenge this week.  For more details and to enter your project click on the Current Challenge link located in the upper right of our sidebar!
