The Many Uses of Kraft

photo by pipii, text by me
Kraft paper is a beautiful thing. I've been obsessed with it for about... 6 years now? If you haven't yet discovered how amazing it is, you are MISSING OUT! This holiday, make it a kraft Christmas! Pick up a cheap roll of kraft at your office supply store and see how many uses you can find! It's pretty, environmentally friendly, cost efficient, challenging, and crafty! Here's some inspiration:
envelopes and letters
gift wrap!
glitterly mobile
kraft as a table cloth! Drawing on the place settings would be SO much fun.
Give your potted plants and mini trees a "fresh from the nursery" look with a kraft wrap on the base.
disposable holiday wall hanging
book covers to give your shelves a rustic holiday flair.
cone tree love
photo ornaments with white gel pen accents
star packet advent calendar
bold and graphic gift tags

What are you going to make? I want to try my hand at either some kraft snowflake patterns or gift wrap goodness. Either way, make it happen! You'll be glad you did!

P.S. We had some technical problems with a few of today's posts going live, so I've decided just to skip those 2 posts and give them to you later this month as a fun holiday treat. Don't worry-- it wasn't any of the giveaways! More of that coming up, so stay tuned!
