The Kraft Journal #108!

For today's #108 'Anything But a Card' challenge at The Kraft Journal, I created a pretty little wrapper to go over a sleeve of instant flavored coffees - a perfect little gift-on-the-go!  To begin, I die cut a doilie shape using some Lunch Bag Kraft Card Stock and wrapped it over the top of the coffee sleeve.  Next I adhered a crochet doilie over the paper doilie and secured them both onto the coffee sleeve with a Tiny Black Wooden Clothespin.  I created a pretty bloom by wrapping some Ruler Twill Ribbon around and twisting as I went along.  Two sweet leaves were hand cut from some Chalk Board Paper and adhered to the bloom.  A pennant was created using a piece of Banner Chipboard and a Flag Banner Sticker onto which I stamped 'Enjoy' from the Little Wishes stamp set available at Paper Sweeties.  The pennant was added to a Memo Pin and then adhered to the nosegay.

Last, I stamped 'Hello Friend' onto a Round Metal Edge Grungy Prim Tag and adhered it to the nosegay.  A couple of rusty jingle bells were tied onto the tag using some Natural Hemp Cording. By attaching the nosegay to the coffee gift sleeve with a wooden clothespin, the recipient can easily remove the topper from the gift without destroying either in the process!!

Please be sure to hop on over to check out the beautiful inspiration projects created by the rest of the teamies this week ... and then we hope you'll play along with our 'Anything But a Card' challenge for your chance to win some awesomeness from The Kraft Outlet Shop!
