Janae P. created an extra special envelope. She used a the purple pattern middy bags and purple/lavender divine twine.  Other supplies used were tissue paper, glue stick, a mailing label and a card.

DSC_0160edit

She started by cutting the tissue paper in a rectangle and then cutting the ends as shown, then glued it down in the return address area.

She put the card in, folded over the open end of the middy bag about a 1/2″ and glued it closed.

wrap divine twine around the card lengthwise a few times and knot, adding extra closure to the envelope.

Lastly, glue on your address label and add the details!

This letter is non-machinable with the post office and does require an extra 21 cents of postage.  Janae usually take these directly to the post office to mail, but they are so fun to get on the other end!

String Art with Divine Twine & PLAID

String art is so on trend, but making your own board is a little tricky…hammers, nails, fingers getting in the way! Plaid Crafts makes it easy with their String Creations Stitch Blanks line! Dawn was sent a few of their designs as part of our STAMPENDOUS! Blog Hop a few weeks ago and couldn’t wait to try them out.

Dawn with Not Just A Mommy created a Love Travels Wood Sign with the Map Stitch Blank! She has family all over the U.S. from California to Indiana and thought it would be fun to highlight a few of them.

She 1st painted the Stitch Blank and threaded it with Divine Twine Bamboo in pink, starting and ending in her home state of Washington.  Dawn used Modge Podge to adhere coordinating scrapbooking to a fun wood pallet and hot-glued the Stitch Blank to it.  A few sparkly stickers to finish the look and you have a great project to display.  This would be a great gift for parents or grandparents with family across the country.

Shirley K. created a fun and very summer looking project making these Pineapple Treat Bags.  She used our Whisker Graphics Middy Bitty bags in the following patterns/colors!

Here are the step-by-steps:

shirely_Pineapple-Treat-Bag_04_060616

STEP 1:

Start with a middy bitty bag. Fold the two bottom corners towards the back about 1.25 inch from the edge.

 

shirely_Pineapple-Treat-Bag_05_060616

STEP 2:

Fold the top of the bag down toward the bag about 1 inch from the top of the bag.

STEP 3:

Fold the two top corners towards the back about 1.25 inch from the edge.

shirely_Pineapple-Treat-Bag_07_060616

STEP 4:

You’ll end up with the pineapple body.

STEP 5: Start with #1 for each pineappple

Repeat with other colors and patterns of bags of your choosing. For the blue and the green, I wanted the pineapples to be more colorful, so I sprayed them with blue and green spray ink to add some more color and shimmer.

shirely_Pineapple-Treat-Bag_09_060616

STEP 6 & 7:

Use Silhouette to cut the tops of the pineapple in coordinating colors.

STEP 8:

Apply a strip of adhesive to the top edge. (I used 0.25 inch double-sided adhesive, but glue would work too).

STEP 9:

Adhere pineapple top to body.
