The Twinery & Denami Designs

**This is my 2nd post for today!  To see the Lil' Inker Designs New Release post, please scroll down! Today we are showcasing Flags & Tags Additions by popular request!***


Welcome to a fabulous blog hop featuring products from The Twinery & Denami Design!  If you are following along in the hop (and I hope you are because there are some great prizes up for grabs!) you should have come from Lisa Petrella's sweet blog!


I have a gift idea to share with you today.  Something like this would be perfect for a secret sister gift or a prayer sister gift or just a thinking/praying for you pick-me-up type of gift.


The sets I used from Denami are Spring Flowers Set (Cling) & the Praying for You sentiment.  To make the bag I took a piece of muslin and cut a long strip and then folded it in half.  


I used my die inks to stamp the flowers on the bottom of the bag.  After I had each side stamped, I folded over each top part of the bag and sewed a seam leaving enough room to thread my twine through the gap.  I then stamped the top of each side of the bag with the leaf image.


After I finished stamping, I threaded my Pink Sorbet & Caribbean twine through the top and then attached buttons to the end so that it wouldn't be easily pulled back through the gap.


Curious what is inside the bag?  A spool of twine of course!  I also thought it would be a super cute way to cover a mason jar filled with flowers too!  The ideas are endless!  And, really, I am not a great seamstress and putting this bag together was effortless...REALLY!  Now you may be wondering what that thing sticking up through the twine is.  You can see it a little better in the next photo.


 It is a wood skewer that I cut down to size and then added a small spool of twine on for decoration. It doesn't really serve any purpose other than for a little extra decoration.  I just wrapped some Washi tape around it to dress it up a little.


This is the card that accompanies the gift.  It uses the Praying for You sentiment that I just adore!  Isn't that font beautiful!  I kept this card super, super simple and decorated it in a similar style as the bag.  It measures 2.5" x 5" so it is a miniature.

As always, there are prizes up for grabs and this one is a fantastic!  To be eligible for the prizes,  simply comment on each participating blog on the hop. The deadline to leave comments is 11:59pm, EDT, Saturday, May 12th. Winners will be announced on The Twinery Blog on Sunday, May 13th.



To continue on in the hop, you now get to visit the fabulous blog by Michele Gross!

Thank you SO MUCH for visiting today! I hope you enjoyed my gift idea!  Have a fabulous day!

We have a big tulip Festival annually and that stamp is so perfect for note cards to use during April. What a great project and more fantastic tips. I've lost track of all the tips I've taken down. Great job on the bag and card. Loved them both.
