Whisker Graphics August DIY

Another month has passed (wow!) and that means another Whisker Graphics DIY that I get to share with you all.  If you haven't heard, I am part of the Whisker Graphics Design Team which shares original DIY ideas twice a week over on the WG blog.  All of us seven ladies are working with the same materials, Divine Twine, Bitty Bags, and the other stickers and digital downloads available in the Whisker Graphics shop.  But despite starting with the same materials, we all come up with such different ways to craft with them.  It is such an inspiring project to be a part of and so I have to give a big shout out to all the other ladies who are involved.  If you're looking for more inspiration, be sure to check out each of their respective blogs:

So for my August project I used just a few materials to make some cute treat or favor bags.  

From Whisker Graphics, I used their Striped Bitty Bags in aqua and pink and also the orange and blueberry Divine Twine.  I filled the bags with treats and then tied them shut with the twine.  Finally I made some fabric buttons with the Dritz button cover kit (I found mine at Joanns) and fabric scraps in complimentary colors.  The buttons are super easy to make and the kit comes with everything you need.  You can glue or double stick tape the buttons onto the bags.  Or glue a pin back to the button so that your guests can wear them as pins once they have enjoyed their treat.

Be sure to check out the Whisker Graphics blog to see this post today.  I will be back next month with another creation.  Any suggestions on what I should make?  Maybe I will do something wedding related for September.  I will definitely be in wedding-mode next month.  I have my friend's wedding where I will be the maid of honor as well as a client's wedding who am helping do different handmade decor elements.  Busy, busy this coming month!

Thanks for stopping by today.  Happy Thursday!
