Trendy Divine Twine Bracelet

March 26th, 2015 § 0 comments

Vanessa Spencer, one of our newest members to join the Whisker Graphics Design Team, uses Divine Twine to create a trendy friendship bracelet. In macrame style, she attaches the twine to a nail head. You could also attach it to a clip board but be sure to fasten it tightly or it will be a tangled mess!

Strategically braid it strand by strand to create a rainbow of colors. What a fun project for a tween age girl party. Provide the twine and let them be the artists of their creations!

Here’s a link to Vanessa’s Blog for a play by play. Stay tuned for next week’s post that includes more Whisker Graphics jewelry ideas. Plus, for other WG Wearables, check out our board on Pinterest. We’d love to see what you create!

Spring Time Pillow Box

Bunny themed projects seem to abound this time of year–a sign that Spring is truly here! Design Team member, Heather Pulvirenti, takes on this theme with a fresh, seasonal packaging idea. She creates a pastel color custom pillow box by covering a standard gray pillow box with one of the Bigger Bitty Bags.  She uses a rabbit die on a Pink Diagonal Stripe Bag, then  lines it with vellum. Scor-tape is handy for assembling the packaging. This lovely Spring time wrap is ideal for a petite sized gift, a special addition to an Easter Basket or a festive favor at your dinner table.
