Canvas Corp Brands has a wonderful selection of holiday goodies.
Not only do we have what you need for making Christmas cards, scrapbook layouts, and mixed media, but we also have a variety of blank canvas pieces and burlaps that work beautifully for your home decor. It is so simple to take one of our blanks and a few other bits and pieces and add them together to make a completely custom made piece for your home or as a gift!

We recently asked a few of our designers to put together some of their favorite things into a collection that we can offer to you at a discounted price.

Sanna made 4 projects using products in her kit. Let’s have her do the show and tell herself!

Gift Bag

Hi everyone, I´m sharing my first project, created with my favorite Christmas Craft Supply Kit. It´s a DIY Christmas gift bag, made with the small treat bag that is in my kit. I´ve decorated the present bag with a canvas flower and added a Kraft Christmas Tag with a clothespin for decoration. This can later be removed and the bag can be used for example as a protection bag for a mobile phone, as it has the perfect size for that.

  • Turn the small canvas treat bag around down to hide the sewed borders.
  • Add a snap fastener (hand sew it on with red sewing yarn and a needle). Then add two red buttons for decoration.
  • Now fold the fabric in a way that the snap fastener is inside the bag and the red buttons stay on the outside as they are for decoration.
  • Sew along the fold with red yarn to keep the fold from moving. Besides, this adds a nice decortional effect to the bag.
  • Add the red fabric flower. Use fabric glue to adhere it onto the bag – be careful that the fabric glue does not sweep thru the bag. Slip your hand inside the bag while gluing to protect the backside of the bag from the glue.
  • Now add a resin flower and a sisal rope piece for decoration into the middle of the flower. This is optional! Then use a black clothes pin to attach a Kraft Christmas tag from the kit on top of the flower. Now you can write your Christmas wishes behind this tag and it can be removed later and the bag can be used for example to hold/protect a mobile phone/lip balm/pens etc.

Clean and Simple Christmas Cards

For my second CCB Christmas craft kit project, created with my fave Christmas craft supplies from my kit, I made a set of clean and simple Christmas cards. These are very easy and fast to create as there is already a card and envelope set in the kit. You just need to add some details to the card bases with the patterned papers and the paints. I´ve again created a video start-to-finish to give you an idea of each and every step of the process.

  • Take a piece of watercolor paper and stamp images onto it with white High Impact Paint. Use a spray bottle cup, a snowflake rubber stamp and a round foam brush as stamping tools. Let the paint dry before moving to next step. When the paint has dried, spray a layer of “Lobster”Glimmer Mist onto the surface. This creates a nice resist background paper pattern. Add black and white paint splatters on top of the misted paper for additional interest.
  • Now cut the patterned papers (in the kit) into a size to fit the card bases (3,5 x 5 inches each). The DIY paper can be cut into various sizes, depending on the pattern needed.
  • Start adhering the precut paper pieces onto the card base and decorate with card with the Kraft Christmas tags, clothespins, burlap fringe and sisal rope. Add additional details with white and black gel pen, Glossy Accents and Wink of Stella pen. Or add ink splatters for decoration. Try to vary the papers on your cards, once picking red dotted and DIY paper, once working with the snowflake paper and the black dotted paper. This way each card has a unique look, even though the basic design stays the same. I used most of the dotted papers for this project, but left a bigger piece of the snowflake paper for another project.

There is plenty of product in this kit to still create two more projects with it.

 

Gift Tags

For this project I had still plenty of papers left over in my Christmas craft kit, so I decided to create matching/similar Christmas present tags to go with the cards. As additional product to the kit, you will need a die cutting machine (or scissors for fussy cutting tags) and die cut dies to cut some tags out of the residue paper pieces. I even used the packaking papers partly for this and for my last project. They work as a great addition to the kit products.

  • Start by misting the bigger piece of ivory snowflake paper with the “Lobster” Glimmer Mist tone. Dry with a heat tool. Then take a paint brush and add white paint details to the snowflakes. Let dry properly.
  • Take a die cutting machine and die cut tags out of the bigger leftover pieces of the patterned papers.
  • Start decorating the tag bases with Kraft Christmas tags, clothespins and leftover paper pieces by varying designs and patterns. Add glitter alpha initials to the tags as a fun detail. Decorate further with Glimmer Glaze splatters, resin flowers and white and black gel pens.
  • Finally add a piece of sisal rope to each tag for easy hanging to the Christmas presents.

 

Wreath

For my final kit project I altered a premade twig wreath by adding all of the residue paper pieces as well as the residue burlap fringe pieces with a sisal rope onto the plain wreath. Then I used all smaller paper pieces (and residue packaging papers) to punch circles and create a “flower” wreath in Christmas colors. The wreath adds a nice, colorful detail to any Christmas home decoration arrangement or table decor.

  • Start by taking the residue burlap fringe pieces and cutting them into half. Assembly around the wreath to see where you want to adhere them onto. Then adhere with a glue gun (beware of the heat and don´t burn your fingers!).Start by taking the residue burlap fringe pieces and cutting them into half.

  • Wrap sisal rope for additional detail around the whole wreath. Hide the know behind the wreath.
  • Now take all residue paper pieces (even the leftover packaging papers) and die cut plenty of different (nesting) sized circles out of the papers. Wrinkle the circles with your fingers to give them a more “flowery” look. Start adhering them onto the wreath with a glue gun – the bigger ones first and then building layers on top with smaller circle pieces. When all “flowers” are done, add wooden pearls into the middle.
  • Add paper leaves and flowers around the DIY flowers and in between the flowers to fill any open areas. This too, is optional. Finally add some black Glimmer Glaze dots inside the flowers for additional detail.

With all  those beautiful ideas in head, make sure to head straight to the CCB shop and put one of Sanna’s kits into your shopping basket and… get creative!!!

Happy Christmas crafting!



I am a mixed media crafter with passion for layers and textures. Architextures are my new love and I can feel the relationship going from strength to strength in the foreseeable future. I have worked with CCB since January 2017 and it felt like home straight away. The team is amazing and the crafting products are even better, which makes it perfect combination and an amazing place to be.
