Golden Middy Bag Place Cards

December 16th, 2014 § 1 comments

I am always looking for a new and easy way to spruce up my holiday table and here is just that! Design Team member, Dawn Smith, fan folds Gold Chevron Middy Bags to create a pocket for a place card. The black card stock and gold chalk marker make them both fancy and fun.  They’re shown here on lovely gold paper plates but they would also be sharp on crisp white dinnerware. This is the perfect way to bring a little sparkle to your Christmas or New Year’s Eve party table. You could even make smaller place cards with the Little Chevron Bitty Bags to label the items on your food buffet or cocktail bar. Silver and gold bells and origami Christmas tree provide the festive, finishing touch!

Wine Bottle Gift Tags

The holiday season just seems to breed gift giving creativity! This project, by the ever talented Savannah O’Gwynn, is the perfect hostess gift for your next party. Just grab a Large White Tag and draw, stamp or stencil your version of a snowman. Then, dress him up with a Divine Twine scarf and attach it to your bottle. Savannah cleverly uses small wine bottles as her base, but you could also decorate bottles of your favorite flavor- infused olive oil or vinegar. For those with a sweet tooth, decorate a decadent chocolate or caramel sauce. Whatever bottle you choose to suit your recipients, they’ll be wowed by your thoughtfulness and creativity!


Now for their closeup…
