This week from one of our International Design Team Members, Tatiana, a simple jewelry craft project perfect for that someone special (or just for yourself!)  She choose to use our Rose Gold Metallic Divine Twine and the Rose Vintage Gold Metallic Divine Twine to make hand crochet Friendship bracelets.

She added a special Angel Lucky Charm bracelet with little knots to give an extra touch.

These bracelets are tied up with a bow or a knot – it’s a personal preference – and it’s a great option for a Valentine’s Day gift.

An easy way to stand out using our Metallic Divine Twines and shine all day long!

Check out Tatiana @ her blog Luxo de Papel where she has as a video or a step by step photos to make this project.

Glittery Glassine Gift Wrap

Ahh, glassine bags! They’re a Whisker Graphics favorite–so versatile, so lovely, so many possibilities. WG Designer, Tatiana Tortelly, heat embossed Middy Glassine Bags with gold embossing powder giving them a beautiful, custom look.

She colored the Garland and the Dove with markers and glued down some red gems to give the final touch. She also applied some Ice Stickles on the Dove to give it extra shimmer.

These designer bags can be filled with candy treats, small gifts, cards or even confetti. Whatever is enclosed shows through them. If you’d like to keep the contents under wraps, insert a Bitty Bag. It’ll conceal the contents yet reveal the pattern and color of the bag. Again, so many possibilities! Please be sure to check out Tatiana’s blog for a video tutorial on her heat embossing technique.

Here are some close-ups:
