How perfect will that be on your layout about baking Christmas cookies?? :) Cookie cutter style varies by kit.. there are stars, hearts, trees, and gingerbread men!
Each kit also comes with ruffled crepe paper, vintage red embroidery cotton, cotton twill with snowflakes and Christmas in red, and red and white candy can striped baker's twine. One full, generous yard of each. 

These kits are PACKED with layerables...  lots of great little flat bits to tuck in behind photos, journalling blocks and all the other places that just need a little something. THESE are my favourite bits to work with... it's these little pieces that to me, give a layout a full and completed look. 
Each kit comes with:

- 3 cut cards; each one is 3x4. Two contain sentiments "Joy to the world" and "all is calm, all is bright", and the third has a cute, spindly little Christmas tree on it.
