Hi friends! Today, I have a delightful project from design team member Landee Anderson to share with you. Landee made these favor bags for a party that have each of the guest’s initials on them. She masked off the initial and painted over it then peeled the vinyl off. The paint gives this project so much dimension and each person is going to feel so special that their bag will have their initial. You could also use this technique to add the birthday girl/boy’s initial to the bags or a monogram or even numbers for a big birthday or a special anniversary. Landee even has a free printable on her blog for you if you’d like to recreate these bags!

Hi friends! Today, I have a project from design team member Amy Tsuruta to share with you. Amy decided to embellish a White Horizontal Stripe Middy Bitty Bag with a big beautiful flower and use it as an envelope to give a card and goodies to a friend. This is a gorgeous way to present someone with a nice gift and perk up their day. Because Bitty Bags have more room than traditional envelopes, you can add some treats, a gift card, or a small gift without having to wrap it separately. When you add a large embellishment to the front of the bag, you add to the “wow factor.”

Happy Friday! Guest Designer, Annette Allen, is back this week with a crafty card idea. A Polka Dot Little Bitty Bag serves as the envelope for her angel topped tag. What an ideal place to include a gift card! Although I love the fun yet polished look of green and gray, you could use whatever color combination floats your boat. Swap out the Divine Twine, dots and other embellishments and you have a whole new look.

Hi friends! Today, I have a project from design team member Thuy Bui to share with you. Thuy made this lovely gift package to hold a card and gift card for a birthday. This is such a pretty and festive way to present a gift card rather than just the plain little envelopes they usually come in. Thuy also personalized the front by adding a photo. Isn’t that a cute idea?

May was the month to celebrate our moms. This month, it’s all about Dad. And, this Friday’s Guest Designer, Jennifer Ferrell, has the perfect project. She has created a handsome card and envelope set using a Horizontal Striped Middy Bag for both, trimming the one for the card so it fits in the envelope. Divine Twine in navy, red, blueberry, and air mail coordinate nicely with the paper stock and give it a masculine Father’s Day look. And my favorite part, the vintage Button and String closure! What a lovely, personal touch, perfect for hand delivery. Change the sentiment on the tag and you have a 4th of July themed card or favor bag for next month. You know what they say… reduce, reuse, recycle! Happy Father’s Day to all the Dad’s out there!

Hi friends! Today, I have a fun project from design team member Savannah O’Gwynn to share with you. Savannah made this cute Father’s Day card and packaged it in one of our Bitty Bags. Savannah thought of the super fun idea of using Post It note tape to close the Bitty Bag shut. She stamped on the tape to customize it and make it match the card. This is such a clever way to personalize something while using such a functional product! The recipient could reuse the bag if they wanted to or if you added some candy or a snack inside they could reseal it. The Solid Divine Twine is a fabulous pop of color and the fun knot makes it masculine.

Happy Friday! This week’s Guest Designer is Annette Allen. She has an amazing way with color. When you check out her blog you’ll see what I mean! She uses bright yellow Bitty Bags in Stripes and Polka Dots then fills them with darling stitched hearts so that they overflow out of the bag. What a way to give the bag a layered, multi dimensional look! Use as a gift bag or as an envelope for a special card for someone you love with all your heart.
