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

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!

A Letter to Santa

December 15th, 2016 § 1 comment § permalink

noe_santaletter_hp_121416

 

Hi everyone!!

If you have behaved good this year, you’re sure to be writing the letter with your wishes for Santa, right?

This year, I have done this in an original way and for this I have used some Whisker Graphics products like Glassine Bags, Red Solid  and Gold Metallic Baker Twine.

The first thing was to decorate my envelope !! I love glasine bags!!  For this I have stamped a couple of nice stamps dedicated to Santa … Do you know that in addition to stamping on the glasine bags you can color your images with your alcohol markers?

On the bottom of my envelope I have placed two strips of double-sided tape on which I have been carefully pasting my favourite Baker’s twines!

Just add a touch more, like sequins or crystal drops and place your letter inside !!

Happy Crafting and remember be happy!!

Hi everyone,  Steph Ackerman from Live Laugh Scrap  here today with a fun Party Banner using an assortment of products from Whisker Graphics.

steph_banner_01_120816

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Supplies:

Divine Twine Collection – Bright White Solid
Divine Twine Metallics – Rose Gold Vintage Metallic
Middy Bitty Bags – Chevron Pattern
Middy Bitty Bags – Plain White
Little Bitty Bags – Chevron Pattern

Large Colored Tags – Gray
Die cuts – Spellbinders, Cricut Expression
Stamps – Joy Clair

If you know someone who loves coffee, why not throw them a coffee party.

steph_banner_02_120816

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 
Choose a selection of Middy Bitty Bags. On the middle one, randomly stamp coffee images.

steph_banner_03_120816

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Add corrugated board across each bag and wrap with Bright White Solid Divine Twine.
steph_banner_04_120816

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 
Die cut large ovals from kraft cardstock to fit the large bags, then add the smaller bags on top. Die cut smaller ovals from kraft cardstock to fit the smaller bags. Next, die cut letters spelling PARTY and place one on each bag on top of the smaller oval. Adhere the large oval to each bag with foam adhesives for dimension.

steph_banner_05_120816

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 
Stamp a different coffee phrase on each tag and slip inside the smaller bags.

steph_banner_06_120816

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Stamp “you’re a special friend” on the center gray tag and add a gift certificate.

steph_banner_07_120816

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 
Cut lengths of Bright White Solid and RoseGold Vintage Metallic Divine Twines and add to each tag.

Punch holes in the edges of each bag and tie together with Bright White Solid Divine Twine.

For a fun effect, add a tiny clothes pin to each letter.

I love to create banners and this is truly an unusual banner. Wouldn’t it be fun to tuck little gifts in the larger bags and gift the banner as a gift?
