This week, Shirley created a beautiful Dreamcatcher with Whisker Graphics’ Gold Metallic Twine!

She found a simple step-by-step tutorial on Pinterest (just search ‘dreamcatcher tutorial’).

With some Divine Twine Gold Metallic, an embroidery hoop, feathers and wooden beads she out did herself with this one-of-a-kind and unique project.  She also made a couple of tassels (of course, out of Divine Twine) to hang from the bottom along with the feathers.

This week, Joanna, came up with a beautiful GOLDEN vintage Valentine’s gift voucher. She used one of brown kraft gold metallic Middy Bitty Bag and add few paper doilies (doily, heart and love) which she cut from crafts and gold paper. She added a few leaves and hand made flowers (made from another middy bag) and finished off with a covering with gold mist.

The tag, which you hide inside of the bag, can convey your Valentine’s wish to your sweetheart.

The final touch is some Divine Twine Gold Metallic to wrap it and to add small heart.  You can also use the Middy Bitty bag as packaging for your Valentine’s gift!

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.

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:

Whisker Graphics Designer, Shirley Karnos, showcases Solid Divine Twine in this trendy tapestry using both our Diva Collection as well as our Traditional line of twine.

Each twine is cut the same length then looped tied onto a wooden dowel. Adjust the twine length to fit your needs. The result is a lovely drape to use as a backdrop for a display or a simple splash of color. Pick your twine colors to fit the season or your decor. I’m envisioning one in holiday colors! This would also be a fun and simple project to do with children.

Here is all you need:
Wooden dowel or skewer
Scissors
Solid Divine Twine
Here are the colors Shirely used:
Blue
Orange
Bluebonnet Diva
Lemonwood Diva
Wheat Diva

Witchy Party Favors

Always creative Design teamer, Rachel McAffee, has a clever decorating idea for your next witches party — or any Halloween gathering, for that matter. Actually, she hosted a Wee Witches Tea Party for her daughter and two little friends. These witch broom place cards were a hit! Simple to make, she cut the ends of Middy Bitty Bags into shreds and then wrapped them around paper straws using gold metallic divine twine. Then, each name was attached to the broom with a glue dot. Super easy and cute, perfect for witches of any age. Above is our traditional Polka Dot Middy Bag and, below is our trendy new Casablanca Middy Bag. Don’t you just love the modern spin of this design?! It’s shown here in both black and gold.

Divine Twine Pom-Pom Pens

September 10th, 2015 § 2 comments § permalink

Project 2I think we all can relate. Pens seem to walk away. I’m not judging; we’ve all done it. You borrow a pen, or sign a paper and before you know it the pen is innocently still in your hand once you’ve left its owner. Here’s a simple solution, by one of our new and creative WG Designers, Vicki Dutcher. She has cleverly personalized her pens with Divine Twine. You can tell the colors are from our new line of Divine Twine Bamboo. Look closely and you’ll see the beautiful luster! Each pen is carefully wrapped then capped with a homemade pom-pom. To add to the wow-factor, Vicki uses the same shades to wrap the pen holder. Love the fresh, clean look! This set would complement an office or be a great gift for a favorite teacher or pen-losing friend. Check out Vicki’s blog to learn more about her and her pom-pom pen set at All I Do Is Stamp.

Supplies:
NEW Divine Twine Bamboo:
Aqua, Solid Aqua, Solid Navy and Solid Green
pens, penholder
