We are super excited to announce that six New Bitty Bags will be arriving in August! They’re so new, we don’t have any photos yet to share, but trust us when we say they are worth getting excited about! Here’s a sneak peak of what’s coming:

Metallic Gold Bags – Our Metallic Gold on White Kraft will pair beautifully with our Gold Metallic Divine Twine. Perfect for weddings, the holidays or any time you need a little sparkle for your event or project.  Available in these styles and sizes:

  • Chevron Middy
  • Horizontal Middy
  • Polka Dot Little Bitty

Navy Blue Horizontal Middy Bags – Crisp Navy Blue on White Kraft.  Ideal for a nautical or patriotic themed party. We like the Blueberry, Air Mail or Solid Red Divine Twine with these Bitty Bags.

Divine Twine Bracelet

July 1st, 2014 § 3 comments

Hi friends!  Today, I have a fun project from design team member Savannah O’Gwynn to share with you.  Savannah made this super cute bracelet using Solid Divine Twine.  This is a great way to jazz up any plain bracelet that you have in your collection.  Also, since this bracelet is achieved by tying knots of Divine Twine to the bracelet, you can have your kids do it.  There’s no hot glue or chemicals needed.  You can create different designs and if you mess up, you can just unwrap it and start over.
WGJuly1-Sav5Supplies:
Solid Divine Twine (Yellow, Orange, Light Pink, Coral)
Plain Bracelet (plastic, wood)
