Halloween Treat Bag

September 13th, 2014 § 2 comments

Here’s a fun idea for those of you working on your Halloween Party Plans. Carmen, from WG headquarters, threw together this darling Halloween Treat Bag. You could also use this as an envelope for your party invitation.  Wouldn’t it be perfect for a Witches Party? Carmen made a tassel from Solid Orange Divine Twine and wrapped it around a twig. Voila – you have a broom. The Polka Dot Petite Sticky seals the Bitty Bag. Who says you can’t wear polka dots with stripes!

Scrapbook with Bitty Bags

September 11th, 2014 § 4 comments

Hi everyone! Today’s Design Team Member, Amy Tsuruta, in addition to being a card making guru, is also a Project Life scrapbooker. Here’s a cool layout she has created with our new Gold Metallic Middy Bag as her base. She cleverly uses this one to house her “Happy Mail”. The next layer peeks beneath it. Flippable layers are a fun and functional technique for scrapbooking.

The striped tag is perfect for journaling and the photo of the various shades of  Divine Twine provides a coordinating pop of color for the page.

Metallic Gold Gift Bag and Favor Set

September 9th, 2014 § 1 comments

Here’s a  lovely combination of color by design Team Member Rachel McAffee. She pairs our new Metallic Gold Bitty Bags with Teal Divine Twine for a fun yet sophisticated look. The Horizontal Striped bag is cleverly sewn into the larger Glassine bag creating a soft, layered effect.  And what a presentation for the Rock Candy! Together, these make a great gift bag and favor combo or can be used as party decor to add pizzazz to your table settings or candy buffet. Don’t you just love the use of a bottle to hold the Rock Candy Sticks? Once the candy is gone, the bottle can be re-used as a vintage bud vase. Oh the possibilities!
