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!

September 9th, 2014 § 2 comments § permalink

Here’s a  lovely combination of color by design Team Member Rachel McAffee. She pairs our new Metallic Gold Bitty Bags with Teal Divine Twine for a fun yet sophisticated look. The Horizontal Striped bag is cleverly sewn into the larger Glassine bag creating a soft, layered effect.  And what a presentation for the Rock Candy! Together, these make a great gift bag and favor combo or can be used as party decor to add pizzazz to your table settings or candy buffet. Don’t you just love the use of a bottle to hold the Rock Candy Sticks? Once the candy is gone, the bottle can be re-used as a vintage bud vase. Oh the possibilities!

Back to School Notebook Goodie Bags

August 12th, 2014 § 2 comments § permalink

It’s Back to School time! We are seeing ads everywhere announcing its arrival. In the spirit of the season, Design Team member Rachel McAffee creates these fun goodie bags to give to teachers or kids that are heading back to school. She used the Notebook Middy Bags (SO perfect for school themed projects!) and then tied little Divine Twine tassels onto each bag. I like how the vintage flashcards give them a classic, old-school feel. Stuff the bags with treats, pencils or other school supplies. It might just soften the blow for those kiddos (and teachers!) that are sad to see the lazy days of summer come to an end.
