Colored Tag Book Mark

July 29th, 2014 § 0 comments

Design Team Member, Heather Pulvirenti, has taken the simple and made it sublime! The base of this book mark is simply a Large Pink Tag. One side beautifully stamped and the other cleverly covered with gray polka dot card stock leaving a peek-a-boo pink eyelet. A handmade tassel ties it all together. (This is certainly a huge, yet simple, step up from the folded gum wrapper that marks the page in the book on my nightstand:) Our Colored Tags come in 8 shades so the bookmarking possibilities are endless!

We are super excited to announce that six New Bitty Bags will be arriving in August! They’re so new, we don’t have any photos yet to share, but trust us when we say they are worth getting excited about! Here’s a sneak peak of what’s coming:

Metallic Gold Bags – Our Metallic Gold on White Kraft will pair beautifully with our Gold Metallic Divine Twine. Perfect for weddings, the holidays or any time you need a little sparkle for your event or project.  Available in these styles and sizes:

  • Chevron Middy
  • Horizontal Middy
  • Polka Dot Little Bitty
  • Chevron Little Bitty

Navy Blue Horizontal Middy Bags – Crisp Navy Blue on White Kraft.  Ideal for a nautical or patriotic themed party. We like the Blueberry, Air Mail or Solid Red Divine Twine with these Bitty Bags.

Light Pink Polka Dot Middy Bags – Soft, Pale Pink on White Kraft. These coordinate beautifully with our Cotton Candy Divine Twine and are the same shade of pink as our Pink Diagonal and Pink Polka Dot Bigger Bitty Bags so mix and match away!
