It's in the Bag!

This week the Stampendous Team is hopping with Whisker Graphics!

They make the cutest bags tags ad twine!

For my project today I am sharing a cute little bag that would be perfect for that graduate in your life!


To create the tassel I used a clear acrylic block and lay a piece of Devine Twine on top of the block.


Then I wrapped the twine around the block 20 rotations.



Tie around the top of the twine to secure and then slide it off the block.


Then tie a short piece of twine near the top.


Trim the bottom to the length you want.


A tassel is the perfect touch for a graduation card!


The bag can open up to put a gift card, cash or a small gift.



Go check out the Stampendous Blog to get more info and get the links to more great projects!

Thanks for stopping by!

Congratulations, little mouse.
Darling card.
thanks for the directions on making
the tassel. I usually wrap around my
fingers and sometimes it gets twisted.
Your way is much easier.
