We started showing peeks of our highly-anticipated Crafternoon collection yesteday! The full reveal will be next week, but we just can’t keep it our little secret anymore.  It has been over a year in the making and once you see all that has gone into the creation of these little DIY kits, you will see why! The best part about these kits is that you can make it in an afternoon. This week we will be taking a peek at some of the kits as experienced by our contributing blog team members.

You will be able to find Crafternoon at your local JoAnn Fabric & Crafts and online at joann.com the first week of August.   Crafternoon will also start popping up at countless other indie shops in the US and Europe over the coming months.  Hooray!

Let’s take a look at the Celebrate Tassel Banner, Crafternoon DIY kit!

(Note: A full video tutorial on this project will be available very soon!)

Hello everyone Michelle Hill here today to show you how exciting and fun our BRAND NEW CRAFTERNOON products are! I was so excited when I saw these were coming out. So many different “Crafternoons”. I was lucky to get the Celebrate Banner which you know how much I LOVE banners!

Let’s get started, I finished this in 20 Minutes.

Everything you need comes in the package all the way down to the pop dots and twine!

How cute is the directions card. Making 1000’s of kits myself I can appreciate how everything in the Crafternoon kits are packaged. Pretty amazing.

I like how the Crafternoon banner gave me the option to use the backside {white} vs the wood grain. I just attached my letters to the smaller layer of the banner.

Then attached the small layer to the larger striped layer.. so simple! Did I mention how awesome the card is with directions.

Moving on down the card, I was onto the tassel portion. I’ve made these before but there way was much more simple and it was already pre cut. WIN WIN

Then I just used the twine that also came in the Crafternoon kit and it was ALL DONE! AMAZING.. I added some poms flat to the wall and instant photo backdrop!  { there is supposed to be two more tassels on the end, I noticed I forgot them after I took the photo..Opps they are now added!}
