Here’s a fun Halloween project from our resident crafter, Carmen. Start with two styrofoam balls and wrap them with our black, orange & white Halloween Divine Twine. Attach googly eyes and pipe cleaner legs and you have yourself a spider – super easy, super cute!

Ahoy there mates! Design Team member, Amy Cluck-McAllister A.K.A. Amy is the Party, has a nifty, nautical treat for us today! Our Navy Horizontal Stripe Bitty Bags have become quite popular with Sailor and Pirate fans alike. She pairs them with our red, white and blue Air Mail Divine Twine and, yes, the life preserver is none other than a LifeSaver candy — CLEVER! The red die cut anchor coordinates perfectly.
To see more on this nautical theme as well as lots of other fabulous party planning ideas, check out Amy’s blog at Amy is the Party.

Today’s post is by Design Team member, Heather Pulvirenti. Heather’s projects always have a fresh and lovely feel to them. This one is no exception! She uses one of our new Navy Horizontal Stripe Bitty Bags as her base, then embellishes it with two fun techniques. First, she stamps it with Versamark ink and heat embosses with platinum powder. Then, to add layers and a pop of color, she wraps a heart shaped die cut with Teal Divine Twine and adheres it to the front of the package. You could use it as an envelope for a homemade card (Middy Bitty Bags fit A2 note cards perfectly!) or as wrap for a small gift. Either way it’s stunning!

Here’s a fun idea for those of you working on your Halloween Party Plans. Carmen, from WG headquarters, threw together this darling Halloween Treat Bag. You could also use this as an envelope for your party invitation. Wouldn’t it be perfect for a Witches Party? Carmen made a tassel from Solid Orange Divine Twine and wrapped it around a twig. Voila – you have a broom. The Polka Dot Petite Sticky seals the Bitty Bag. Who says you can’t wear polka dots with stripes!
