Favorite Fall Flowers - a Handmade Papercrafting Kit

UPDATE:  THE KITS ARE NOW SOLD OUT.  I MAY DO ANOTHER PRODUCTION RUN NEXT WEEKEND.  EMAIL ME AT thefunkiejunkie@gmail.com IF YOU WANT TO BE ON THE WAITING LIST.  WATCH FOR A TUTORIAL LATER THIS WEEK.

If you are a regular reader of my blog, you have probably noticed a few new crinoline flowers I have designed to celebrate the autumn harvest season.  These include a sunflower, a marigold and a chrysanthemum.  I'm in the process of putting together a fall paper crafting kit containing these flowers.  I'll be working over the weekend to complete 10 kits which I expect will ship no later than Wednesday, October 19th.  The kits will be $20 (plus shipping) and will include the following items (you can double click the photo to see the items close up).  If you think the price is a bit high, just remember that almost everything here is hand-done and that is labor intensive.  You will probably be able to make 4-5 cards with all of these items.
  • 3 large crinoline flowers (your choice of mix of sunflower, marigold and chrysanthemum)
  • 10 fall oak leaves such as you have seen on recent cards - 4 with script stamp, 4 with gingham stamp and 2 cut from acetate and colored with alcohol inks
  • 2 - 2 yard lots of crinkled seam binding, one in rust and one in a gold/brown tone wound on vintage style hand distressed ephemera cards
  • Venice lace butterfly and 1 yard of Venice lace both dyed brown (lace wound on one of my hand distressed clothes pins)
  • 3 vintage style tags, hand distressed
  • 4 metal filigree flowers (1 large and 3 small)
  • 1 yard of rust colored burlap thread
  • 1 beaded safety pin
  • 2 pieces of hand distressed fall ephemera
Your kit will arrive packed in an beautifully embellished 6x6 card box.  The box can later be used to mail/present a 5.5x5.5" card.

If you would like just the flowers, they will be 3 for $4.50 plus shipping and will also arrive safely in a lovely embellished 6x6 card box.
I am taking reservations for these kits.  If you would like to reserve a Favorite Fall Flowers kit, please email me at thefunkiejunkie@gmail.com.  If there are any left after the reservations come in, they will be on sale in my Etsy boutique.  Don't forget, if you want to make your own, I have crinoline for sale on Etsy too.  I will also try to get a tutorial done sometime this week, in between making flowers for the kits.

What a beautiful kit! And I think very fairly priced. I'm still using what I bought on your etsy shop and can definitely vouch for the quality and careful shipping.

Linda, please let me know next time you put together another kit. I am very interested. Hopefully if I get one your creative mojo will rub off on me, too. Haha! These flowers are amazing!!
