The end of a year always brings a mingled sense of excitement and nostalgia: We look with anticipation toward what’s ahead while remembering with fondness the good things that have passed us by. There are a few good things from 2018 that we’d like to call your attention to that haven’t quite passed us by yet, but which will no longer be available after December 31. Any one of these items would make an excellent addition to your crafting arsenal and could prove to be just the right thing for many of your Projects Yet-to-Come.
Here are ten must-have items from our 2018 Holiday Expressions idea book!
10. Raspberry Baker’s Twine. This bright, Raspberry twine makes a fun accent that coordinates perfectly with other Raspberry-colored papers, cardstocks, and stamped images.
9. Fern Stitched Ribbon. The Fern thread stitched along the edges of this white cotton ribbon adds a touch of elegance to bows and other accents.
8. Cut Above® Recipe Kit—Holiday Kitchen. We highlighted this festive recipe kit just last week. Catch up on that post here if you missed it.
7. Blue Burlap Ribbon. Another excellent trim option that adds both color and texture to any project.
