The Kraft Journal #150 - Holiday Gifts - Cinnamon Honey Butter

Good Monday Morning To You!

For today's Holiday Gifts challenge at The Kraft Journal, I made homemade Cinnamon Honey Butter and placed in decorated mason jars to be delivered in Kraft Bags that have been decorated with a vintage touch 

I used lots of products from The Kraft Outlet today. I started by decorating a Medium Kraft Paper Sack by die-cutting doilies from Buff Ivory Cardstock and distressing it with water and distress inks. The water will break down the fibers and give it a worn  and vintage look.  I used Medium Kraft Cardstock to die-cut Christmas Trees by Sizzix adding stickles for a decorative glitzy touch. I stamped and added a Grungy Prim Hang tag using an image and sentiment from Paper Sweeties Season of Love.  I used a Hinge Clip which has been painted cream to add the tag and keep the bag closed. 

I created a paper flower using Vintage Dictionary Pages and Brown Kraft Text Paper using a technique I shared in January and can be found here.
For the Jars, I printed tags using Medium Kraft Cardstock and embellished with ribbon, a berry sprig, a button and Red Baker's Twine. I also added some christmas material to the top cutting out using pinking shears. 
Aren't they cute! And yes the contents is very sweet and yummy!
Please be sure to head over to the The Kraft Journal to check out the projects by the other talented ladies.  We hope to see your Holiday Gifts creations in the gallery this week for your chance to be featured on our "Feature me Friday" post as well as be entered to win a $15.00 gift voucher from The Kraft Outlet store.
