A Vintage Christmas Paper Crafting Collection

 I have to apologize for the length of time it has taken me to design my Christmas collection but unfortunately the holidays coincide with my busiest time of the year at work.  Here it is finally, loaded up with some of my favorite supplies and embellishments to use in Christmas crafting.   
My Vintage Christmas Paper Crafting Collection includes:
  • Four (4) shabby crinoline "poinsettias" - one bright Christmas red, one a red-burgundy Victorian Christmas shade, one pink and one white
  • A coordinating mailing/presentation gift box that will fit a 5.5x5.5 heavily embellished card
  • Red and white vintage style crepe paper (9.5x11" sheet of each color)
  • Three (3) kraft and three (3) white corrugated cardboard snowflakes, lightly ink distressed
  • Six (6) kraft and six (6) white corrugated cardboard hearts, lightly ink distressed
  • Four (4) kraft and four (4) white corrugated cardboard stars, lightly ink distressed
  • Four (4) ivory felt stars
  • Two (2) ivory felt hearts
  • Three 2-yard pieces of scrunched seam binding, each wrapped on a sweet vintage-style card.  The seam binding is red, green and my fun peppermint pop (variegated red/white) style
  • 18" of yummy 1 3/4" wide Venise lace dyed a vintage gold
  • Three (3) digitally altered vintage images (totally adorable and perfect for the front of a card)
  • Three (3) mini wooden clothes pins, hand distressed.  One is embellished with tiny glittered snowflakes, the other two are plain.  You can use them like that or with your choice of embellishments. 

The cost of the kit is $22.50 plus $2.50 shipping in the US.  I will ship internationally and will quote a shipping charge when I know what country it is going to.  Pre-orders are being taken at this time.  I anticipate being able to turn out 20 kits, the first 5 will ship no later than November 21st.  To reserve a kit, please email me at

Add-on Samplers:
I have put together two samplers of items from my Etsy shop that I think coordinate well with the Christmas collection.  I did not include these items with the main collection as many of my customers already have some of them.  The samplers are a great way to try some my products.  They will give you a nice amount to try and you should be able to use them all up and not have anything left over after Christmas, collecting dust in your stash - LOL!

Holiday Embellishments Sampler - $8
18" of red and white paper twist ribbon
18" of red burlap ribbon
9x14" rectangle of white burlap mesh
2 yards each of red, white and evergreen burlap string, wound on a vintage style wooden spool
20" strip of white border doily
3 filigree metal snowflakes
Ivory and Gold Lace/Ribbon Sampler - $5.50
1 yard of ivory silk ribbon
18" metallic gold mesh ribbon
18" gold mesh
18" champagne mesh ribbon
18" gold crocheted lace
Individual prices are shown.  If you would like all three sets (the Vintage Christmas collection, the Holiday Embellishments Sampler and the Ivory and Gold Mesh/Ribbon Collection, the combined price is $32.50 (savings of $3.50).  Please note, these items are not included in the 10% November discount in my Etsy store.  
Shabby Crinoline Poinsettias - $6.50
Includes 4 crinoline "poinsettias" one in bright Christmas red, one in reddish burgundy, one in pink and one in white.  Or you can choose your preference of colors.  Each flower measures 2.5 inches across.
If you are interested in purchasing any of these items, please email me at  I will send you a PayPal invoice which you can pay with any major credit card.

Thanks so much for stopping by and taking a look at my Christmas collection.
