To You From Me Card and Treat Bag

I've been honored to guest design for

I was inspired by this bright and cheery Hot Pink Chevron Middy Bitty Bag. I loved combining the hot pink, turquoise, and lime green on the card and treat bag. Such hot summer colors!
I used a punch to cut out the center of the Aqua Scrolly Square Label so you could see the chocolate chips cookies in the bag. A strip of acetate (clear cardstock) keeps the goodies inside the bag. Blue Solid Divine Twine ties the bag shut and adds a little more of that pop of color. Deep Pink Solid Divine Twine is used on the coordinating card.

Happy Father's Day!

I couldn't be any more excited to be a guest designer for
They have so many fabulous colors of Divine Twine, fun printables, bitty bags
and other crafty goodness.

I made this fun little card and coordinating bag for my dear hubby.
Today not only will the 15th be Father's Day, but it's also our 19 year wedding anniversary!
I really have no idea where the time has gone. It's been a blink of the eye!

For the card I tied Air Mail Divine Twine, Navy Solid Divine Twine, and Red Solid Divine Twine on the Small Tag that's stamped Happy Father's Day. A white chalk marker worked beautifully to create the stripes on the kraft card base. I used Blueberry Divine Twine on the White Horizontal Striped Middy Bitty Bag to create the tie closure. I find it easy to use a couple tiny brads and circle cardstock pieces along with a bit of twine to create the tie closure. It's a simple way to create interest with the bitty bags. Plus it gives you a way to reuse the bag for another card or treats.

If you haven't already done so, I certainly encourage you to check out all the fantastic things at Whisker Graphics.
