Today’s design comes from veteran WG Designer, Amy Tsuruta. She creates thoughtful cards with clever little sentiments.  This one features a pocket made from our brown kraft Little Bitty Bag. The 2.75 x 4″ size is  perfect for stowing a gift card. Clearly, one to the local coffee shop would be fitting here, but swap out the coffee cup embellishment and customize it to fit the card and your recipient — think sassy shoe sticker and a card to the trendy new shoe store for that friend with the shoe fetish! Imagine the possibilities. Thanks for your inspiration, Amy!

Design Teamer, Amy Tsuruta, is back with another fresh and fun design. Our Plain Brown Kraft bag is her canvas. Plain it may be yet oh so versatile! She uses a lovely summertime acrylic paint to add wide stripes of color. The free form design and matte look add to the charm and the layered bloom and banner tag coordinate perfectly. Of course, pick your favorite color and tag to give it your personal flair! Please see Amy’s blog at TsurutaDesigns for a complete supply list and other handy tips.

IMG_6433_TwineBittyBagBookmarks
Summer is here in full swing and a perfect time to lounge in your favorite chaise with a good book. (I admit, I currently have an old grocery list saving the page in the book I’m reading!) WG Designer, Shirley Karnos, has an easy fix for saving your spot. She’s created these stunning bookmarks using cardstock wrapped with Kraft Middy Bitty Bags as her base. The subtle striped and chevron designs peek through without taking away from the beautifully water-colored die-cut flowers and feathers. The tassels are made with Divine Twine from our new Diva Collection, combined with some of our Traditional shades to fit with the color scheme of the bookmark. Make them in your favorite colors and keep a stash on hand for gifts! For step-by-step instructions and a complete list of supplies, please see Shirley’s blog shirley shirley bobirley.

Divine Twine shown here:
Deep Denim Diva Stripe Twine; Lemonwood Diva Stripe Twine; Bluebonnet Diva Stripe Twine; Violet Diva Stripe Twine; Palos Verdes Diva Stripe Twine; Palos Verdes Diva Solid Twine; Orange Divine Twine; Peach Divine Twine; Green Apple Divine Twine; Deep Pink Solid Divine Twine; Cotton Candy Divine Twine; Raspberry Divine Twine
