Kraft Outlet DT Reveal for "Holiday Gift" Challenge

Karen Letchworth
Design Team Member, Karen Letchworth, absolutely loves making Holiday Gifts, so this week's Holiday Gifts Challenge at The Kraft Journal Challenge Blog was a lot of fun for her.  Karen kept it very simple.  She used the Mini Canvas Triangles to make this adorable banner.  They come with all three canvas pieces in one package for the low price of $2 which is a great price for gift-giving.  She added some Natural Hemp Cord bows, wool felt circles and holly leaves cut from wool felt using die-cuts, and also used some glitter-covered holly berries.  She attached the Mini Canvas Triangles to a candy cane pipe cleaner using hot glue, and then tied the ends with Wraphia Ribbon.  Very simple!  You're warmly invited to stop by Karen's blog, My Cup Runneth Over, to see her complete supply list and some additional close-up photos of her project.  We hope you have lots of fun using your Kraft Outlet supplies to create some fun Holiday Gifts for this week's challenge.
Tammy Hobbs
For today's Holiday Gift Challenge, Tammy created homemade Cinnamon Honey Butter and placed in decorated mason jars to be delivered in Kraft Bags which she lovely decorated She used lots of products from The Kraft Outlet today. She started by decorating a few Medium Kraft Paper Sack by die-cutting doilies from Buff Ivory Cardstock and distressing it with water and distress inks. The water will break down the fibers and give it a worn look.  She then die-cut Christmas Trees from Medium Kraft Cardstock adding stickles for a decorative touch. She stamped and added a Grungy Prim Hang tag by using a Hinge Clip she has painted off-white. Tammy created a paper flower using Vintage Dictionary Pages and Brown Kraft Text Paper using a technique she shared with us at The Kraft Journal which can be found here.
For the Jars, she printed tags using Medium Kraft Cardstock and embellished with ribbon, berry sprig, a button and Red Baker's Twine.  Please stop by Tammy's blog Creating Somewhere Under The Sun to view additional pictures and information regarding today's Holiday Gift Challenge.
Kristi Schurr
For this week's Holiday Gifts challenge, Kristi made a cute gift box using embossed snowflakes and the trendy chalkboard technique. She used a 3x3x2 Kraft Box  as the base. While the box was flat, Kristi heat embossed snowflakes on the four sides.After the stamping was complete,she constructed the box, used some Kraft Recycled Tissue Paper to the inside along with the box contents.She then wrapped the box with red and white ribbon and tied it into a bow at the top of the box. She die cut a tag from Blackboard Stock Paper, and white embossed the sentiment onto it. The tag was then attached to the top of the box using some red cording from the Dark Jewel Hemp Cord pack, along with some jingle bells threaded through the cord. Kristi made a bow from Wraphia Ribbon and added that to the top along with a wooden snowflake for the finishing touches. For more information on this project including a complete supply list and tutorial, please visit Kristi at Kristi's Paper Creations.

Jessica Esch
For this week's Holiday Gift challenge, Jessica made a 12 Days Till Christmas Advent Calendar for her son. She started out with a Brown Kraft Cover Weight Cardstock  base and a file she downloaded from Lori Whitlock. Once all the pieces for the boxes were cut and assembled, Jessica cut the corresponding pieces for the tops of the boxes, sides of the calendar and top of the calendar using some Buff Ivory Cover Weight Cardstock and designer papers from Simple Stories. To make the numbers for each of the boxes which will be filled for her son with some treats, she die cut the stars and circles using My Creative Time products and stamped the numbers in the center of the circles using another My Creative Time stamp set.
For the next part of Jessica's project, she added a matching tag and some gorgeous ribbon for added details. To make the tag, she started with a Small Kraft Shipping Tag and added a sticker that matched her designer paper~ a Christmas Tree from the Simple Stories 12 Days of Christmas set. For the sentiment on the Christmas Tree, Jessica added some stickers from the Chit Chat Seasonal Word Stickers
