Divine Twine Door Hanger

October 28th, 2014 § 1 comments

DIY wreaths seem to be the rage this season, and not just for the holidays but for any day. Design Team member, Heather Pulvirenti, has taken the classic wreath and created a smaller version to serve as a lovely door hanger. Wouldn’t this be the perfect housewarming or hostess gift? She uses Teal Divine Twine but, of course, any color would do to fit your occasion. Use the colors of autumn to add to your Thanksgiving decor. Preparing for the winter holidays? Choose a combination of red,  green or glittery silver or gold. You could also use a smaller ring to make ornaments.  So many options! For details on making the perfect wreath, check out Heather’s blog at at Witty Title Here. Have fun creating!

Bitty Bag Mod Podge Pumpkins

October 21st, 2014 § 1 comments

Pumpkin carving is fun, but let’s be honest, it’s messy, time consuming and very slimy. Plus the carved pumpkins have a short shelf life. Design Team member, Dawn Smith agrees. She’s not a big fan of pumpkin carving and wants to enjoy her pumpkins for most of the season. So… she Mod Podges her pumpkins. Simply adhere cut-down strips of Middy Bitty Bags with Mod Podge. Once dry, use acrylic paint on the stems. That’s it!  Mod Podging with Middy Bitty Bags is the perfect way to decorate pumpkins that will last from Halloween through Thanksgiving!

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!
