Tiny Wooden Clothespins and Washi

I have absolutely fallen in love with the many wonderful products available at The Kraft Outlet; and among my favorite are the Tiny Wooden Clothespins and the several darling varieties of wonderful Decorative Washi Tapes.  There are several brand new styles of washi tape in the Kraft Outlet Store.  I've found so many fun uses for the washi tape, and I thought I'd share one quick idea with you today.
You can cover the Tiny Wooden Clothespins with a snippet of washi tape, and just trim off the excess.  This way, you can make your card or project specifically match your embellishments.  This first picture shows how I just laid the washi over the clothespin, and the following picture shows how I simply covered and trimmed the excess.
I used a Mini Kraft Merchandise Bag that I covered with a few strips of washi tape.  I embellished it with the matching Wooden Clothespins, and some of The Kraft Outlet's darling Baker's Twine.  This is a great way to make a gift card holder because your typical gift card fits right inside, and everything blends together perfecctly as you can see from the Starbucks gift card I tucked inside.
There are products at The Kraft Outlet ranging from literally just a few cents to a few dollars to fit everyone's budget, and you will find a wide variety of wonerful products for all your crafting needs.  I hope you will treat yourself to a few new goodies from The Kraft Outlet and then head over to The Kraft Journal Challenge Blog to play along in our challenges.  We would LOVE to have you join us!
Thanks for visiting today.  I hope this little tutorial makes you want to grab some "wonderful washi" and other goodies from The Kraft Outlet.  I know that I sure love all my products they sell, and don't know what I'd do without them.  They also have lots of great Note Cards and other "must-have" items.  We hope to see you soon!
