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!

Although we are still enjoying the balmy, A.K.A. hot, days of summer here in Northern California, Fall is quickly approaching and Design Team member, Kerstie Pedersen, has a clever way of ushering it in! With treasures from her son’s nature collection and Striped Petite Stickys she creates her “Fall Catcher”. I love how the petite stickys look like mini lanterns when suspended from the branch!
For more pics as well as complete details on constructing your own “Fall Catcher” please see Kerstie’s blog.

Last week we showed off the new glittery, Gold Metallic Bitty Bags. This week, we’d like to give you a peek at two others that hit the shelves.
Navy Horizontal Stripe Middy Bags – 5 x 7.5″
The fresh, crisp look of bold Navy on white kraft is perfect for nautical themed parties. For a patriotic flair, pair these bags with our Air Mail, Cherry, Solid Red or Solid Navy Divine Twine. We also love how they play so happily with any of our Yellow Bitty Bags.
Light Pink Polka Dot Middy Bags – 5 x 7.5″
Soft, pale pink is a lovely addition to the existing line of Polka Dot Middys. Although our Hot Pink Polka Dots are very popular, sometimes a subtler shade is in order. We also carry Light Pink in the convenient 6.25 x 9.25″ Bigger Bitty Bag size in both Polka Dot and Diagonal Stripe so mixing and matching is easy!
All of our New Bitty Bags are in stock and ready to ship. Just place your order on our website and we will promptly get them out to you.

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.
