Ooooh…isn’t it getting beautiful outside? The leaves are changing colors and the fall weather is finally starting to break through the heat. When I think of fall…I think of food. (Or maybe I just always think of food.) And what is a good meal without some cute decor to spruce up the table? Today I wanted to share these cute napkin ties that double as placecards for a fall meal: As I was walking through a craft store, those giant wooden buttons just screamed at me to make something with them, and I […]

Hello there!! This is Amy here with a card to celebrate Autumn!! I love this time of the year. I can’t decide if it is the cooler sweater weather or the changing of the leaves that is my favorite, but I just love everything about this season…..except that it seems too short sometimes.

In its early years it was for an abundant harvest and occasionally for a […]
It’s Tobi here, and today I’m sharing a little treat bag! It’s fun to switch up projects instead of cards-cards-cards.

This is a simple little treat bag that would be perfect for a teacher, cat-lover, or anyone who needs a kind word! I punched holes right through the bag so the contents would stay in. The twines look so pretty!!
Hi there! It’s Tifany here, and I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but to me it seems that there are a whoooole lot of birthdays happening this time of year. And where there are birthdays…there are gifts. And where there are gifts…there is a need for cute gift bags. Enter The Twinery and SRM Stickers: I took a plain glassine bag and jazzed it up with some birthday border stickers. Then I turned the flat glassine bag into a dimensional gift bag by folding it along the three closed edges (the same depth of fold on each […]
