Karen here today to share a great What's Hot Wednesday gift-giving idea. The Kraft Outlet is chock-full of AMAZING products to make crafting, gift-giving, and preparing for weddings, showers, and memory-making a breeze! One of my many favorites from the Kraft Outlet are their wonderful JOURNALS.
They come in various sizes, and are very reasonably priced. I recently saw one in a fancy boutique that sold for $45, and I was able to make this lovely gift for well under $5. I used the Natural Soft Smooth Kraft Journal, which sells for just $1.99. To that, I added some strips of Decorative Washi Tapes including the sweet Tape Measure Washi Tape and Pink & White Stripe Washi Tape that I adhered to strips of Buff Ivory Cover Weight Card Stock (these packages of card stock are a great buy and they contain WONDERFUL quality paper). I cut a piece of Brown Kraft Cover Weight Card Stock into a circle and stamped on it. This element, along with the flags/strips were placed on a doily that wraps around the sweet Kraft Journal, and is tied with lengths of Natural Hemp Cord. I placed a vintage looking Jenni Bowlin Flatback Icon Pin (10 cents) on top.
I haven't even told you yet the very best thing about these amazing JOURNALS. The thing that I absolutely LOVE about them is that they are lined!!! This means that every page in the journal is lined, which makes writing in them super easy. They make excellent schedules/appointment books, prayer journals, travel journals, or even a diary, etc. What a great cost-effective way to hand-craft a gift for someone. I know that I love journals, and I think they make a great gift for friends, sisters, mothers, aunts and grandmothers....you name it! Check out these wonderful journals, and ALL the great products at The Kraft Outlet.
