Wine Bottle Gift Tags

December 2nd, 2014 § 2 comments § permalink

The holiday season just seems to breed gift giving creativity! This project, by the ever talented Savannah O’Gwynn, is the perfect hostess gift for your next party. Just grab a Large White Tag and draw, stamp or stencil your version of a snowman. Then, dress him up with a Divine Twine scarf and attach it to your bottle. Savannah cleverly uses small wine bottles as her base, but you could also decorate bottles of your favorite flavor- infused olive oil or vinegar. For those with a sweet tooth, decorate a decadent chocolate or caramel sauce. Whatever bottle you choose to suit your recipients, they’ll be wowed by your thoughtfulness and creativity!

Bitty Bag Place Cards

November 4th, 2014 § 4 comments § permalink

Happy November! With Halloween behind us, we look ahead to Thanksgiving. It’s a holiday about family, friends, food and being thankful for all three. Design Team member, Savannah O’Gwynn, has a lovely idea for your Thanksgiving Day table. She gives us 3 different ways to use bitty bags and twine for Thanksgiving place cards that double as “thankful cards”. Write the guest’s name on the front to mark their place at the table. Then, have pens available so each can jot down one thing for which they are thankful. You can go around the table and share them or keep them tucked away inside the bitty bag. For a video tutorial by Savannah, click HERE.
