Whisker Graphics

This week the Stampendous Team has been hopping all week long with Whisker Graphics!

They make the cutest bags tags and twine!

Today I made a card that uses one of the fun bags and some of their Devine Twine.

These little bags are the perfect size to fit a gift card and they are easy to incorporate on nearly any card!
I used a Little Bitty Bag and stenciled the Graduated Dots stencil  on to it with silver embossing paste.

Here is the card before I added the gift card with tassel.

The image is Cupcake Jump.
The sentiment is Joy Birthday Stamp.

I showed you how I created a larger tassel on Monday.
Today I wanted a smaller tassel so I started by laying a piece of twice across a ruler and then wrapped additional twine around the ruler 6 times.

I tied the twine around the top to secure it.

Then I slid the twine off the ruler.
I tied an additional piece of twine a short ways down and then trimmed the tassel.

I punched a small hole in the end of the gift card and tied the tassel pull through the hole and then slid it into the bag.
