We received a special treat in the mail today that we just had to share with you. It’s from a fabulous company out of Portland, Oregon called A Kitchen Box (AKB). They specialize in curating themed boxes to inspire and delight food lovers. It may be an unassuming white box on the outside, but what’s inside is awesome! Although they have a variety of Kitchen Box options, ours was the Spring Salad Box. Take a look at what we found…
There’s recipe cards, kitchen tips, Bamboo Salad Hands (If you’ve never used a pair, they’re the best tool ever for tossing a salad!) There’s also a potato scrubber, a yummy infused vinegar, a coordinating dish towel and even a music download. Each item is thoughtfully selected to put to use in the kitchen yet meticulously packed for a lovely presentation. And, we’re just tickled to see our Honeycomb Bitty Bag and Divine Twine as part of the packaging.
The Kitchen Boxes can be purchased individually or in various length monthly subscriptions. What a great gift idea! Check them out on their website at www.akitchenbox.com.

Ahoy there mates! Design Team member, Amy Cluck-McAllister A.K.A. Amy is the Party, has a nifty, nautical treat for us today! Our Navy Horizontal Stripe Bitty Bags have become quite popular with Sailor and Pirate fans alike. She pairs them with our red, white and blue Air Mail Divine Twine and, yes, the life preserver is none other than a LifeSaver candy — CLEVER! The red die cut anchor coordinates perfectly.
To keep the theme going, Amy laces up a simple Glassine Bag, with some Colored Tags and a Striped Petite Sticky as a backdrop for her anchor.

Today’s post is by Design Team member, Heather Pulvirenti. Heather’s projects always have a fresh and lovely feel to them. This one is no exception! She uses one of our new Navy Horizontal Stripe Bitty Bags as her base, then embellishes it with two fun techniques. First, she stamps it with Versamark ink and heat embosses with platinum powder. Then, to add layers and a pop of color, she wraps a heart shaped die cut with Teal Divine Twine and adheres it to the front of the package. You could use it as an envelope for a homemade card (Middy Bitty Bags fit A2 note cards perfectly!) or as wrap for a small gift. Either way it’s stunning!

Happy Thursday, everyone! Design Team member, Betsy Skagen of Paper Calliope, has created a novel way of keeping her writing supplies from walking away. In her case, they seem to walk out the door in the clutches of her daughter! We all know the type. No pen, pencil or marker is safe. Thankfully, using her craftiness and some Whisker Graphics products, Betsy has been able to stop the thievery. Divine Twine is the chain and the wooden spools decked out in Brown Kraft Bitty Bags serve as the anchors. Cute and clever!

Here’s a fun idea for those of you working on your Halloween Party Plans. Carmen, from WG headquarters, threw together this darling Halloween Treat Bag. You could also use this as an envelope for your party invitation. Wouldn’t it be perfect for a Witches Party? Carmen made a tassel from Solid Orange Divine Twine and wrapped it around a twig. Voila – you have a broom. The Polka Dot Petite Sticky seals the Bitty Bag. Who says you can’t wear polka dots with stripes!

Hi everyone! Today’s Design Team Member, Amy Tsuruta, in addition to being a card making guru, is also a Project Life scrapbooker. Here’s a cool layout she has created with our new Gold Metallic Middy Bag as her base. She cleverly uses this one to house her “Happy Mail”. The next layer peeks beneath it. Flippable layers are a fun and functional technique for scrapbooking.
The striped tag is perfect for journaling and the photo of the various shades of Divine Twine provides a coordinating pop of color for the page.

Here’s a lovely combination of color by design Team Member Rachel McAffee. She pairs our new Metallic Gold Bitty Bags with Teal Divine Twine for a fun yet sophisticated look. The Horizontal Striped bag is cleverly sewn into the larger Glassine bag creating a soft, layered effect. And what a presentation for the Rock Candy! Together, these make a great gift bag and favor combo or can be used as party decor to add pizzazz to your table settings or candy buffet. Don’t you just love the use of a bottle to hold the Rock Candy Sticks? Once the candy is gone, the bottle can be re-used as a vintage bud vase. Oh the possibilities!
