  • Holiday Decor in 5 Minutes!

    Hello everyone! The holidays are upon us and just like you we are scrambling around finishing up last minute shopping and such. Fortunately our project today might be the easiest one yet, and the results are simply lovely: D.I.Y. 5 Minute Paper Doily Garland!

    Supplies needed:

    Directions:

    Take your paper doilies and fold them in half:

    Cut the length of Baker's Twine that you'd like and sandwich your twine inside your folded doilies. Space doilies out as desired. The doilies will stay put pretty well, but continue to the next step if you want your doilies to be a little more secure.:

    (optional) Use double sided tape to secure doilies (place a piece inside each doily and press to adhere):

    Hang and enjoy! Happy holidays from both of us to all of you! xox Ez + Marichelle

  • 5 Secrets to Wrapping the Perfect Christmas Gift

    'Tis the season to get creative with your gift wrapping. Here are five secrets that will make your packaging extra special this holiday season.

    1. It's not just what's on the inside that counts:
    The best wrapping says something about what's hidden inside. Of course you don't want to give it away, but the best presents under the tree are the ones that pique your giftee's curiosity. Select gift wrap and embellishments that hint at what you're giving. Look for colors, textures, and patterns that tell a story and make your friends and loved-ones excited to see what's inside.

    2. Gift toppers need not be store-bought:
    A quick survey around your home will yield ample gift topping solutions. Why not use Baker's Twine to tie an old cookie cutter atop a gift for the epicurean on your gift giving list? An extra ornament or two can be strung on with Luxe Ribbon for a festive look that will delight anyone.

    3. Think outside the box...literally:
    Add a little mystery to

  • Project Inspiration: Mini Envelope Advent Tree

    Hi everyone! Here's a fun little project we put together using our two latest shop additions: Colored Dot Stickers + Mini Envelopes.

    For this advent calendar we decided to form the shape of a tree (it looks so cute on the wall in Marichelle's house), but you could create any shape you like (perhaps a wreath or other festive form).

    For this project we used:

    To start we positioned our first envelope for the top of the tree and stuck it to the wall with removable adhesive. Then working down from there we formed rows in the following amounts:

    • Row One: 1 envelope
    • Row Two: 2 envelopes
    • Row Three: 3 envelopes
    • Row Four: 4 envelopes
    • Row Five: 5 envelopes
    • Row Six: 7 envelopes
