Don’t you just love the sight and sound of glassine bags? They’re smooth, sheer and crackle when you move them. This week’s Design Team member, Amy Tsuruta, has created such a lovely card tied up with a simple strand of Divine Twine. Why hide it? She uses a glassine bag as her envelope to let the receiver get a sneak peek at her creation. Our glassines come in two sizes and not only make the perfect envelope, but also perfectly line our Bitty Bags so giving baked treats is a breeze.
For details on creating this lovely card as well as other ideas by Amy, please see her blog HERE.

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.

Here’s a clever project by Design Team member, Amy Tsuruta. Using a piece of cellophane she creates a window in a Chevron Little Bitty bag. She adds sequins, seals up the top and voila! You have yourself a shaker.
Add it to card stock and you have a shaker card. These multi-layered cards are all the rage and the Little Bitty Bags are the perfect size for making them.
