Introducing Make It Market Mini Kit: Holiday Folk

It's Christmas over at Papertrey Ink and for today's Group Post we have a brand new Market Mini Kit to share.  I have 2 projects to share, a gift with a card and tag, and a set of quick and simple tags.

First off, here is the gift...

I used to get Birchbox boxes each month full of little goodies.  And of course, I couldn't toss these cute little kraft boxes....so I kept them.  All.  :)  So now I can take them out and decorate them and they are just perfect for a set of cards or any little gift.

Here is how I made the little envelope that also decorates the top of this kraft box:

To make the top, I took the paper pack from the new Holiday Folk Mini Market kit and cut out 4 circles.  The circle dies are from the Pint Size Wrap die set.  I cut 2 out of 2 different colors.  These dies made the perfect sized envelope!

Next, I folded each one in half...

And then laid them together, one on top of the next....

I glued the underside half of each tab to make one solid piece...

Here is a shot of the outside....

To close, you just tuck in each flap under the next.

Next, I grabbed the Shaker Shapes: Square Dies and cut them out in Pure Poppy.  I laid some Saddle Stitch ribbon under the center square and adhered them down just like this....

These circle dies made the perfect envelope that fit even more perfectly into the square shaker dies.

I wrapped up the little envelope by tying a bow after adding in the stamped tag using the Holiday Fold stamp set with the twine that comes in the kit.

I decorated the tag with the little wooden hearts that are also included in the kit, and a couple of red pearls.

I also included a simple little card with a sentiment from Christmas Cheer stamped on the top...

My next project is a quick set of tags using the same Holiday Folk kit.  First I die cut Tag Sale #5 die and covered the bottoms in red and white striped washi.

I simply stamped the sentiment in Spring Moss, added a wooden star and then finished the tag off with the twine from the kit and a gold bell.

  15. Laurie, I love all of this! It really pumped up my level of inspiration. Every time I see the saddle-stitched ribbon I'm reminded of how much I like it, but then I never seem to remember that when I go to place an order! This time, I think I'll actually get it on my wish list. The last tag you did is a great example of just how perfect a simple design can be. The jingle bells are the best finishing touch – as I said at the beginning, I really do love everything you've shown here!
