Our Design Team member Shirley Karnos created hand-made “Thanks” notecards using strips cut from the horizontal bitty bags so that her daughter could write thank you notes to relatives who gave her Christmas presents. She stamped the scalloped circle labels with a background flower to layer over the Bitty Bag strip.

Here’s what was used:

Thanksgiving Bitty Banner

November 5th, 2015 § 0 comments § permalink

Tatiana Tortelly, our super, crafty designer from Brazil, has created a trendy banner  to welcome guests for Thanksgiving dinner.image

She used the Avery Banner Labels but instead of printing on them, she die-cut the letters with “I am grateful” then glued each to the banner and attached an Little Bitty Bag with adhesive.

image Tucked inside each Bitty Bag is a small tag, one for each dinner guest.

When the dinner guests arrive, each can pull out a tag and write down one thing for which they are grateful. Each can read it before dinner.

The tags and banner are all strung with yummy shades of Divine Twine which provides both fashion and function.

It’s a fun way to welcome your Thanksgiving guests and get the conversation flowing. Feel free to change the greeting and write something that matches the number of guests you’ll receive for dinner.

Here’s what you needt:
Little Bitty Bags
Divine Twine (orange, black and  navy)
– Small tags
Avery banner
– Brown ink pad
– Glue or adhesive

Here, she uses Chick Petite Stickys as her focal point. Set against white card stock, they really pop! The Yellow and Gray Horizontal Striped Middys pair perfectly.

The best part is…this can be made in no time yet really “wow” the recipient! See more by Shirley on her blog, ShirleyShirleyBoBirley.

Some of you may be thinking we are rushing the season a tad, but why not get a head start on your Halloween planning and party decorations with this fun design by Rachel McAffee. She LOVES Halloween, so it’s actually impressive that she’s waited this long!

In her neighborhood, everyone get’s “boo-ed!” For those of you new to this tradition, it is when you secretly leave a treat on your neighbor’s doorstep, ring their bell and RUN! Sort of like Door Bell Ditching but nicer 🙂 In turn, the neighbor is given instructions to BOO two other households, leading to a chain reaction until the entire neighborhood has been BOO-ed!

These darling Bitty “Boo” Bags are made from our new Casablanca design. Aren’t they fabulous? They’re shown above in gray and then below in a crafted cupcake holder made from purple. Of course, you could choose any of the 11 colors we have in stock to fit with your Halloween theme! The Scalloped Avery Rounds make the perfect Boo label. They come with easy-to-use template options for endless creativity! Change the message and you have perfect party and table decorations for your Halloween soiree!
