Color Challenge at TKJ

Welcome to my blog!  I'm so glad you've stopped by to say hello and to take a peek at my project for this week's challenge at The Kraft Journal.  You will have so much fun with this lovely color palette.  I know I sure did!
For this week's gorgeous Color Challenge, I decided to grab one of the Kraft Outlet's fun Mini Kraft Gable Boxes and decorate it with some layered wool felt flowers.  I used a Papertrey Ink flower die-cut.  In the center of each flower, you will find a little button tied with some shabby country-style Natural Hemp Cord.
These fun Mini Kraft Gable Boxes (along with all the other fun boxes sold at the Kraft Outlet) are great for gift-giving, and they're a great bargain at just $0.70 each!  I tied my box shut with a big fluffy bow made from both the Vintage Winter White and Pink Blush Hand-Stained Bias Tape.  Then, I finished off my project by hanging a sweet little Round Metal-Edged Grungy Prim Hang Tag that I stamped with a Papertrey Ink "warm wishes" sentiment.
Finally, I decided to create a matching card to make the perfect little gift set.  I used a Small Lunch Bag Kraft Note Card, and I simply repeated all the same supplies as listed above.  It's always a super cute idea to make a matching card for your gift box, and the Kraft Outlet makes it SO easy to create gift sets.  You'll find everything you need to make a lovely gift set of your own using products from the Kraft Outlet.  I hope you'll stop by this week to play along in our fun color challenge.  Who knows?  YOU could be the lucky winner of our monthly prize (a $15 gift certificate) and we would LOVE to have you join us.
