Landee made these cute patriotic utensil holders that are perfect for a 4th of July or Memorial Day BBQ or picnic.

Hi friends! Today, I have a swoon-worthy project from design team member Rachel McAffee to share with you. Rachel made a darling space party ensemble using Little Bitty Bags for goodie bags and Divine Twine for pompoms. The Divine Twine pompoms on the goodie bags look like fireworks. It’s amazing how a few small elements make a really big impact on a party. The multicolored pompoms are really fun!

Happy Mother’s Day to all the amazing women out there! Today’s post, created by Guest Designer Megan Hoeppner, shows how she honored her mom this year. Be sure to check out her blog for a step by step tutorial cleverly coordinated with what she refers to as “Life Lessons a la Mom”.
Megan believes, that people love receiving gift cards, but there’s sometimes a negative connotation that giving gift cards is impersonal. Worry, no more. By creating a quick and completely personal gift card holder like this for your Mom, you’ve proven that you’ve definitely put your heart into your gift giving. And Mom will have both a keepsake and a fun shopping spree to enjoy!
Megan used a Kraft Polka Dot Bitty Bag for the envelope adding some bling with sequins and glitter, put the gift card in a gold sprayed white bag …
and attached the bag to the back of the “love you” Large White tag that she thoughtfully stitched in gold and strung with Gold Metallic Divine Twine.
A fun gift-card holder, just right for any mama’s heart of gold!
Happy Mother’s Day to all of the beautiful moms out there! We hope your day shines!
Please visit Megan’s Blog for a supplies list along with the step-by-step tutorial.

Happy Friday! This week’s Guest Designer, Dawn Smith, is back with more graduation party ideas. These Place Card Easels are the finishing touch to your graduation table, and the best part… so simple to make! The Notebook and Grid Paper Little Bitty Bags are perfect for carrying out the school theme. Dawn adds a classic black cap with tassel made from Metallic Silver and Metallic Gold Divine Twine. To add to the fun, she has slipped a white tag in the bags with pens available for the graduates to write a wish or dream for their future. The tags can be hung on a “Wishing Tree”.

Happy Friday! With the school year rapidly coming to a close, many are planning Graduation Parties. This week’s Guest Designer, Dawn Smith, has a fun and festive dessert cart idea for any graduate’s party!
She starts with a trendy banner made from trimmed Little Bitty Bags strung on Metallic Gold Divine Twine. I love how the tiny clothes pins give it that splash of color!
Then, Dawn uses some Petite Stickys and Solid Black Twine to create a cake topper for her decadent dessert. Yumm!
Our Goodies Bitty Bags are the perfect sack for holding candy treats.
And in keeping with the black and white theme, Dawn cleverly uses the Bigger Bitty Bags to create some playful rosettes and attaches Petite Stickeys among them to complete the festive backdrop. Now that is some dessert cart! Of course, black and white was the theme here, but you could easily use team colors from your graduate’s school or make it into a dessert cart for any party – birthday, anniversary or just for fun!
Banner: Little Bitty Bags, clothes pins, Divine Twine, Letters, markers
Cake Topper: Petite Stickys, Solid Black Twine, mini wooden pegs
Treat Bags: Goodies Bitty Bags, assorted candy
Rosettes: Bigger Bitty Bags, two sided tape
Gold Divine Twine
Stay tuned for next Friday’s post to see more grad party ideas with Dawn’s clever place cards and table settings. In the meantime, check out her blog at Not Just A Mommy . She has some amazing entertaining and design ideas. Enjoy!
