Peek a Boo Treat Bag

October 16th, 2014 § 1 comments

With the holiday right around the corner, we’ve been seeing lots of Halloween projects. Here’s a great idea to keep in mind for after Halloween to use all that leftover candy.  Package it and give it to someone who needs a little pick me up! Design Team member Amy Tsuruta created this peek-a-boo treat bag using our very versatile Brown Kraft Bag. She cuts an oval window to reveal the contents and seals it with washi tape and Divine Twine. You could also switch out the stamped sentiment and use it as a thank you gift or as a BOO! Bag for those of you that have kiddos that participate in that Halloween game. Mix it up and have fun!

Happy Tuesday, everyone! We continue to ramp up for Halloween, this week with Design Team member Rachel McAffee. For her witches party, she switches things up from the traditional black and orange by pairing our gorgeous Gold Bitty Bags with stark black for an amazing contrast and an unexpected elegant look. A party hat, goodie bag and cat mask place card holder are all part of her witchy ensemble. For detailed instructions for making each of these pieces, please check out Rachel’s blog, Fawnprints.

A Kitchen Box

We received a special treat in the mail today that we just had to share with you.  It’s from a fabulous company out of Portland, Oregon called A Kitchen Box (AKB). They specialize in curating themed boxes to inspire and delight food lovers.  It may be an unassuming white box on the outside, but what’s inside is awesome! Although they have a variety of Kitchen Box options, ours was the Spring Salad Box. Take a look at what we found…

AKB2

There’s recipe cards, kitchen tips, Bamboo Salad Hands (If you’ve never used a pair, they’re the best tool ever for tossing a salad!) There’s also a potato scrubber, a yummy infused vinegar, a coordinating dish towel and even a music download. Each item is thoughtfully selected to put to use in the kitchen yet meticulously packed for a lovely presentation. And, we’re just tickled to see our Honeycomb Bitty Bag and Divine Twine as part of the packaging.

The Kitchen Boxes can be purchased individually or in various  length monthly subscriptions. What a great gift idea! Check them out on their website at www.akitchenbox.com.

She pairs them with our red, white and blue Air Mail Divine Twine and, yes, the life preserver is none other than a LifeSaver candy — CLEVER!  The red die cut anchor coordinates perfectly.

Navy Bitty Bag Wrap

September 23rd, 2014 § 1 comments

Today’s post is by Design Team member, Heather Pulvirenti. Heather’s projects always have a fresh and lovely feel to them. This one is no exception! She uses one of our new Navy Horizontal Stripe Bitty Bags as her base, then embellishes it with two fun techniques. First, she stamps it with Versamark ink and heat embosses with platinum powder. Then, to add layers and a pop of color, she wraps a heart shaped die cut with Teal Divine Twine and adheres it to the front of the package. You could use it as an envelope for a homemade card (Middy Bitty Bags fit A2 note cards perfectly!) or as wrap for a small gift. Either way it’s stunning!
