Joanna S with My Paper World

Created a creepy candle. She wrapped it with our Whisker Graphics Black Diamond Twine from the Metallics collection:

She then added some spider web and die cut with Halloween motive, with a little bit of Orange Solid Divine Twine as an accent.

In the end she added a few spiders and some black & orange mists!

Boo!  All Done and ready for those Trick-or Treater’s at the front door.

Creative Halloween Treat Bags

Boo!

Michelle P. is back today with a little Halloween treat that she made for one of her good friends.  Halloween is her jam.  She’s in to those little candy skulls, sugar skulls, whatever they are called.  You know, those skulls that are all colorful and cute ….even though they are still a skull!  She picked up some of her favorite chocolates, and some cute skull tin candies and packaged them up all funlike using pieces from our Whisker Graphics website like this super cool Divine Twine Twist in Halloween pattern.

Bags are the best for wonky-shaped things.  Don’t get me wrong, I love me some gift wrapping with boxes and paper too, but a bag will accommodate just about anything.

These Horizontal Stripe Middy Bitty Bags in orange and black are naturally perfect for the occasion.

I die cut a little banner piece, and the numbers 31 (for October 31st) in purple because sometime over the last 10 years Halloween colors went from black and orange to black and orange and purple and green, right?

 

 

 

michelle_halloweenbags_05_102516

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I used a Large Colored Tag in green and layered fun bits with it using dimensional adhesive.  Dimensional adhesive is so great.  Adding spaced layers while being your adhesive.

And then I stacked my bags together, tied my twine around it, layered on my tag – and we are gift-ready!

USA String Art

Hi, Connie here with a fun USA string art project using the Divine Twine  Red, White & Blue.  Divine Twine is just like stitching with thread but so much easier.  The twine doesn’t get tangled like the thread does making it easier to stitch string art designs.
Products used:

 

connie_stringartflag_02_100416

 

 

 

 

 

 

 
After the placement of the colors were determined I started stitching with the white twine first.  I threaded a needle with a big eye and began sewing like I would on material.

Easy!!!!

 

 

connie_stringartflag_03_100416

 

 

 

 

 

 
I skipped around with the because I was curious about how it would look.  So I stitched a few rows of red, and then went back and filled in with the white twine.  When the stitching was completed the stars were added along with the button and sticker. I’m pretty sure it will be the star of my Christmas tree this year.

Our Whisker Graphics Design Team project today is from Janae P.

Hi all, I just got my first String Creations Stitch blank by Plaid Crafts and was excited to use my Whisker Graphics Divine Twine on a project I’ve been wanting to put together.

janae_usstringart_01_090816

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

For my supplies I gathered:

 

My first step was deciding which colors and how I wanted to design my United States. I love the red, white and blue patriotic colors and decided to go for a subtle mix of those colors with a little tan thrown in to accent the wood.

 

janae_usstringart_02_090816

 

 

 

 

janae_usstringart_03_090816

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

janae_usstringart_04_090816

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

janae_usstringart_05_090816

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

janae_usstringart_06_090816

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

janae_usstringart_07_090816

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I put my masking tape on for a clean edge and applied the paint. I was worried at first that it would clog the little holes, but found they stayed clear through all the coats. Once I was done with blue I let it dry, peeled off my masking tape and then applied another layer covering the blue side. I added my tan paints and let it dry, then removing the masking tape.

 

 

janae_usstringart_08_090816

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I used the red twine to highlight my favorite places to travel and the white twine to highlight places I hope to go. I’m excited that every time I pass this piece in my house it will remind me of so many good memories and I’ll remember the future adventures I have to make.

 

 

janae_usstringart_09_090816

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I started a knot with the red twine on the back of the wood in my “home” location and then pulled the string through to the front. I then strung it over to my various favorite vacations, knotting it at each stop. I made sure my twine ended up back at home,

 

 

janae_usstringart_10_090816

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

…then adhered a paper heart over it with a 3-D adhesives.

janae_usstringart_14_090816

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

janae_usstringart_15_090816

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I then tied a few strings in single knots and put them through the holes of my one-day vacations.

 

 

janae_usstringart_16_090816

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I had a cute clipboard lying around that I though would be so fun to display it on, so I glued it down to some white cardstock and threw on some thickers saying “explore” with an extra little paper heart!

I love how this piece turned out and am excited to add different colors of twine for different spots I want to highlight in the future.
