Kraft Outlet DT Reveal for "Holiday Gifts" Challenge
For this week's project Becky has made her mother a cute vintage inspired photo frame using a black and white photo of her brother from 1958. The base is the Stretched Burlap 4 x 4" . Using a black plastic covered wire from the hardware store, she attached a Tim Holtz Hinge Clip to the top for holding the photo. Next she adhered a strip of Tim Holtz Film Strip Ribbon to the bottom of the canvas. Using one of the X-Small Grungy Prim Tags, Becky wrote her brother's name and age in the picture in pencil, then looped it through the hole in top of the hinge clip, then adhered it to the canvas. Next she wrapped some pretty gingham ribbon around and tied a pretty bow on top. For more detailed information about this project, please check out Becky Garrison Paper Crafts.

An easy and quick gift card holder doubles as a tree decoration until Christmas Day. Jan has used aLibrary Card pocketcovered in lace, design paper and glittery snowflakes as her "packaging" for a gift card. She attached a piec of Adelaide Seam Binding as a hanger, bound to the pocket with buttons and some Natural Hemp Cord tied in a bow. Some jewelry beads were threaded onto the ribbon. It only took about 10 minutes to complete this simple project. Stop in at chai tea 'n me for full instructions. Merry Merry !
Making hand-made Holiday Gifts has always been a special holiday memory for Design Team Member, Karen Letchworth. For this week's challenge, Karen has taken a simple little jar that she picked up at a local thrift store, painted the lid in Martha Stewart's Robins Egg Blue and hot glued some vintage trim to it. She made the top into a pin cusion by using a hand-stitched piece of muslin and some stuffing to create a pin cusion. In the pin cushion, you will see some of the sweet little Jenni Bowlin Red Stick Pins, and to finish it off, Karen added a Tim Holtz Adage Ticket (Hope) secured with a mini safety pin, some seam binding, and tied with a snippet of jute. Inside the jar you will find some candy cane sticks dipped in chocolate. What a sweet little gift!
