Hi Friends! One of the most versatile supplies in my craft room is Kraft paper. One minute it is covering my work surface to protect it from ink and paint spills and the next moment is it being used to beautifully wrap a gift. Kraft doesn’t just stop at paper, you can get so many products from Papermart made from sturdy kraft paper and cardboard and with just a few supplies tun them in to beautiful custom party decor and gift packaging.
The big reason I like kraft is that it goes with everything! It is may favorite neutral. Sure black is elegant and white is a pure blank canvas but kraft is comfortable and since it is a mid value color already you don’t have to do much to it to make it look done. Watch the video and see what I mean.
Here is a list of supplies I used:
- Kraft Take Out Boxes
- Kraft Shipping Tags
- Kraft Tin Tie Coffee Bags
- Kraft Jewelry Boxes
- Star Garland
- Jute Cord
- Kraft paper by the roll
- Patterned Scrapbook Paper (Nantucket line DCWV)
- Gesso or acrylic paint, 1″ wide brush and make-up sponge
- Dry Adhesive such as ATG gun
- Stamps: Tim Holtz, Kaiser Kraft and Stampin’ Up!
- Brown Ink
Directions: Distress the kraft paper products with gesso and ink. Layer on paper and stamp. Embellish with jute cord and star garland.
Try dressing up your kraft paper products with pastel shades of acrylic paint for Easter, bridal and baby showers, try mint and gold for weddings and try stamping polka-dots with a wine cork and any color acrylic paint on kraft paper to make a cheerful birthday wrap! The more you use kraft paper the more ideas you will come up with! Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!
