HAPPY NEW YEAR, FRIENDS!

I’ve always been big on happy mail, but I sort of slacked off last year.  So this year one of the things on my list is to send more happy mail.  I have a list on my phone of the holidays I want to send something for:  New Year’s, Valentine, Mother’s Day, Spring/Easter, Halloween, Fall/Thanksgiving, and Christmas.

New Year’s is first up for fun gift bag ideas.
I stocked up on Christmas clearance from Target at 90%-off and thought I could use the gold and silver items to embellish my Gold Metallic Horizontal Bigger Bitty bags for some new year pizzazz.

I got some fun tissue and included a family picture from Christmas, a card, and some chocolate gold coins.

I embellished the outside of my DIY gift bags with a lace doily, a large colored tag, gold and silver initial ornaments, and Divine Twine Metallics; gold & silver Divine Twine, that I stitched down.

First of all, Happy New Year!  Noelia from El Scrap de Cris y Noe

I created a Mini album made to send my Snail Mail … with a lot of pockets to send my letter and some details to my penpal …

I have used several “Bigger Bitty Bags” sewn in the center as base … I have also used a “Little Bitty Bag kraft” to hide my letter, tags in different colors and sizes and Divine Twine to close the album and to decorate my tags!!

Making Bracelets and Party Favors

How to make twine bracelets and party favors with Whisker Graphics –

Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman ~ Live Laugh Scrap  here with a variety of ways to use Whisker Graphics twine.  I love the beautiful colors and the substantial feel to this twine.  This month I’ve created some twine bracelets that you can easily recreate with the kids. Or maybe you can make up a bunch and put them in Middy Bitty Bags for fun party favors. Who doesn’t love giving a little “something” to party guests. Making party favors and bracelets are fun with the girls and they’ll love making them and giving them!

Supplies:

 

steph_bagwrap_02_010516

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Braid down about an 1″, then start adding beads to the center strand.<

steph_bagwrap_03_010516

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Braid between the beads to add some definition and keep the beads separated. Once you’ve added 7-8 beads, braid the twine another inch then tie the twine together to finish.

steph_bagwrap_04_010516

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Use an assortment of twines to create some really fun bracelets.  The twines add amazing visual interest and texture.

steph_bagwrap_06_010516

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Wear them all together or separate – it’s up to you.

steph_bagwrap_01_010516

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

For making party favors, I folded down the top edges of the bags, then tie them closed with white twine.

Finally I stamped the tags with Joy Clair stamps and used the same twine to tie them to the bags

Just think how much fun you’ll have making these with the girls.  Just put out the twine and beads and let them decide what they want to make (and how many!!!!).

Thx!

Making a Gold Banner

Can we just stop and take a moment to inhale the deliciousness that is Divine Twine Metallic Gold?

Michelle P. here and I am a gold lover.  And gold is an any holiday thing – Valentine’s, Mother’s Day, Birthday, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year’s … are there more?

If there are, gold is the answer.

michelle_goldbanner_3_122716

I was putting together a banner to go up for the holidays and decided it needed a lil’ sum-sum.  And Divine Twine was the perfect answer!

A little pennant banner from Target, a little gold-accented pine cone banner from Michael’s, and some Divine Twine Metallic Gold from Whisker Graphics.
Done, and done.

Happy Holidays!

Holiday Bitty Bag Cracker

December 22nd, 2016 § 0 comments § permalink

janae_poppers_hp_122216

 

Janae created today a Holiday Cracker with our Whisker Graphics Bitty Bags and Divine Twine!

janae_poppers_1_122216

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Supplies:

  • Middy bitty bags in gold honeycomb, stripe red and any other festive colors you’d like
  • A roll of cellophane
  • Green stripe divine twine
  • Glue stick or tape
  • Candy/glitter/confetti/prize filler
  • Toilet paper roll/wrapping paper roll/paper towel roll
  • Scissors

 

I started by cutting my roll down to a smaller size, for toilet paper rolls I just cut it in half.

janae_poppers_2_122216

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I then cut the middy bags open so that they laid flat.

janae_poppers_3_122216

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

janae_poppers_4_122216

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I cut a rectangle of cellophane to size of the flat middy bag then rolled my toilet paper roll up in it.

janae_poppers_6_122216

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

You can tape or glue the roll shut, whichever works better for you. Once it sealed you’ll get your divine twine to tie up one side of the cracker. I just tie it in a tight knot.

janae_poppers_7_122216

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Then comes the fun part, filling up the cracker with all the little goodies and surprises you’ve gathered. Put them in the cracker and tie shut the other side with your divine twine.

janae_poppers_8_122216

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Once both sides are tied your Christmas cracker is ready to go!

These are great for stocking stuffers or for a Christmas Eve surprise.

Thanks for checking in today!  ~ Janae P.
