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:

Calling all Star Wars fans! We are just weeks away from the new Star Wars movie opening next month! Design Teamer, Dawn Smith, is actually having a Star Wars themed Christmas party! She realized that her new Star Wars cupcake topper rings matched perfectly with our gold metallic, black and gray Chevron Middy Bitty Bags. So, she  turned them into fun bag toppers! She carefully cut off the ring shank with a wire cutter, hot glued them to coordinating paper straws then thread them through the Bitty Bags. So simple and subtle. They keep the Star Wars theme without screaming it :0)

This packaging is from WG designer, Tatiana Tortelly. She is new to the Design Team and also relatively new to blogging, but as you’ll soon see, she is no stranger to crafting! She has beautiful designs and is super enthusiastic. Welcome to the team, Tatiana!

This project is old-school Glassine. Don’t you just love the feel and even the crinkly sound of glassine? Or, is that just me 🙂 Glassine bags are perfect for giving baked treats because they  are moisture and grease resistant, so they keep food items fresh. Plus, the receiver gets a sneak peek at what’s inside. They are also excellent liners for our Middy and Bigger Bitty Bags if you want to keep the contents under wraps — literally!

Shown here, Tatiana takes permanent black ink (so the color doesn’t run) and stamps away! Simple technique with custom results. The Divine Twine, shown here in Holiday, provides that perfect pop of color. With so may colors from which to choose, your packaging options are endless!

Change the sentiment, change the twine and/or change the contents and you have a whole new gift!
