The Kraft Journal #46!

 Hello sweet friends and welcome to The Kraft Journal's #46 challenge - 'Christmas Gifts'!

I'm having a ball as The Kraft Journal's November Guest Designer ... I adore all things kraft-y!!

I simply adore designing paper crafted 3-D gift items ... and especially for the holidays!  Giving that someone special a handmade from the heart treasure will certainly show how much you care this season!

I used the Medium Kraft Pillow Box available from The Kraft Outlet to create a couple of sweet treats filled with Holiday Peppermint Tea Bags! 

The festive nosegay was created with some aqua twill tape, a handmade chenille candy cane and some sweet jingle bells tied on with Brown Kraft Baker's Twine.

For the matching little card, I used more of the Brown Kraft Baker's Twine to tie the jingle bell around the stocking.  Lunch Bag Kraft cardstock was used for the card base - inked with cream paint to create a time-worn look, and Buff Ivory cardstock was used to stamp the sweet little stocking!!  CAS and easy peesy!

All patterned papers are from The Scrapcake and stamped images are from Inspired by Stamping.

A sweet treat you'll love to give this holiday season!  These would make adorable hostess gifts for all the parties you'll be invited to attend this year too!

Be sure to hop on over to The Kraft Journal to check out the other teamies fab inspiration!

Thanks for peeking in today!
