Happy New Year, everyone! It's Karen here today, and I feel SO blessed to have the opportunity to share this week's What Hot Wednesday segment with you all on New Year's Eve! I hope you're all having a safe, fun time with family and friends; and on behalf of the entire Kraft Journal Team, we all wish you a blessed and prosperous 2015!
This week's featured Kraft Outlet product is the AWESOME Light Kraft Cardstock. While ALL of the Kraft Outlet's card stocks are wonderful, this particular cardstock is sure to become a favorite the first time you try it. I used the Light Kraft Cover Weight Cardstock. All the Kraft Outlet's cardstocks will run through most printers, and can be used for a wide variety of projects. For today's projects, I wanted to show you real quickly how incredibly easy it is to make a useful gift-giving idea. Sometimes you want to give someone a little more than just a card, but not a "huge" gift. Making a bookmark/tag is the perfect solution. These sweet little hand-made tags can be tucked inside a card for friends to use as a bookmark, or just as a reminder that you're thinking of them.
For my first tag, I cut the Light Kraft Cover Weight Cardstock into the shape and size I desired. I inked the edges, and ran some Natural Hemp Cord through the loop hole. I cut an antique cream doily in half, and placed one half on each of my tags on alternating sides. I added a Round Metal Edged Grungy Prim Hang Tag with a (love you) rub-on sentiment that was applied using my handy dandy Bone Folder Tool. Adding rub-ons, especially in small spaces, can be really tricky. By using a Bone Folder Tool, it's much easier to control where the rub-on is being placed. There are LOTS of great uses for this awesome tool. Next, I used Walnut Ink to stain a Tiny Wooden Clothespin that I secured to the tag.
For the second tag, I again used the Light Kraft Cover Weight Cardstock to cut my base. I again ran the Natural Hemp Cord through the loop hole, but this time I also added a bow made from Oatmeal Cream Hand-Stained Bias Tape. I stamped a sentiment onto a Tim Holtz Journaling Ticket. I also placed a sweet little Tim Holtz Memo Pin in the bow at the top of my tag.
There's really not a whole lot to these tags. I simply wanted to show you all how incredibly easy it is to make a small gift using Light Kraft Cover Weight Cardstock and all our fabulous Cardstocks. We hope you will check them out, give them a try, and then stop by to play along in our Happy New Year Challenge this week. You're also welcome to stop by my blog, My Cup Runneth Over, to say hello.
Happy New Year, everyone!
