Felt, Twine or Burlap...Oh, My!

It's Monday again, and time for another great challenge at The Kraft Journal where this week's theme is "Felt, Twine or Burlap".  These are three of the great products you can find at The Kraft Outlet.

For those of you who know me at all, you probably realize by now that I don't do real well with the word "OR".  So, for this week's "Felt, Twine OR Burlap" Challenge at The Kraft Journal, I figured I'd forget all about the word "OR" and just use them ALL!   I started with one of the darling little Cotton Drawstring Bags which sell for just $0.35 cents each at The Kraft Outlet, and then added a piece of Burlap, a felt flower and leaf using a die-cut from Papertrey Ink, and then added a wooden button tied with some Natural Hemp/twine.  I also added a Tim Holtz Adage Ticket to which I clipped on a Tiny Wooden Clothes Pin that's covered with a bit of Red & White Polka Dot Washi Tape.  I tucked several Starbucks coffee packets into the Cotton Drawstring Bag for gift-giving.  Many of the sweet little products at The Kraft Outlet are well under a dollar, and work GREAT for making gift packaging, such as this project.  Check out all the darling items in our store, and then come by and join us this week for our "Felt, Twin, OR Burlap" Challenge; or..... just use all three like I did.
