Hemp Twine with The Kraft Journal

Hello There!

It's my turn to share a product spotlight at The Kraft Journal. I have a few creations that feature The Kraft Outlet's Natural Hemp Cord.  It's my favorite to use to thread buttons and it curls up so easy as you can see in my tags below.
I created some tags made from Brown Kraft Coverweight cardstock where I used the Natural Hemp Cord for the hanging string, but what I really love as I mentioned is how you can take a thin paintbrush handle or pencil and wrap the cord around several times and it will curl right up giving you curlycue's...It will hold it's shape.

My Creative Time - Boughs of Holly
Next I created a Thank you card to have on hand once the holidays are over. The Button/twine embellishment treatment was inspired by bracelets I saw on pinterest.
I started the card with a base of Brown Kraft Coverweight cardstock.  I used Blackboard Stock Paper to mat the pinstripe patterned paper on the left side of the card front. The Blackboard Paper was also used for the frame in the middle of the card.  The trees were stamped onto Vintage Dictionary Pages and cut out with a coordinating die.  

Natural Hemp Cord was laced through the vintage white button and wrapped around the pinstripe panel to create a unique embellishing touch.
