Star Gazing Party!

April 21st, 2015 § 0 comments § permalink

As a kid, WG Designer, Dawn Smith, was fascinated with Greek mythology and origin fables. Her favorites were stories about people and animals who became constellations. Stars and star-gazing are a popular party motif and, as such, they inspired her to create constellation sewing card printables for a stellar party garland. She threaded the cards with Divine Twine — Solid Navy on the white card stock and Solid Yellow twine on the midnight blue.

Strung with Solid Bright White twine, this garland would be a fun class or party project for budding astronomers and star gazers alike. What a creative way to explore the night sky and learn about the constellations!

Bitty Bag Raffle Board

March 5th, 2015 § 0 comments § permalink

Today’s post is by Kerstie Pederson. She had a fun project to do for her child’s school auction and our Little Bitty Bags in black and gold were the perfect fit!  She created a Gift Card Board where raffle winners pick their prizes. This could also be used at a birthday party where the children pick numbers 1 through 15 and get to pick their goody bag of choice — of course, the dollar amounts would not need to be listed : ) Strung with Divine Twine, it’s a simple yet sensational display. Switch out the colors using our extensive color palettes and design options to customize your board!
