And now for some crafty inspiration:

Dressed Up Gift Bag

Can you teach an old bag a new trick? You can with Gold Glitter Dot Paper Garland!  The sparkle of gold glitter paired with bright white dots take a plain Kraft bag from Plain Jane to Cinderella at the ball in no time at all.

Decorating a Christmas Chalkboard

Simply add our glitter garland to any holiday project to add a bit of flair. I’ve simply used double sided tape to swoop a banner over this cute Christmas Chalkboard, it really makes the frame pop!


  • You can achieve a similar look on either project just as easily with our silver glitter garland.  Both shown here: Glitter Garland


Emily Lanham:

A 'Happiness' Banner

I love the artful accents! The banner that I received can be cut to make a small banner or a long banner, perfect for any home decor project!

'Let it Snow' Christmas Banner

'Let it Snow' Christmas Banner

I am so excited to be working with the new May Arts ‘Artful Accents Kraft Decorative DIY Banner‘! I love making banners, so having a great base ready to decorate makes for a quick project!

I went with a winter theme- I thought the red woven herringbone gave the perfect feel & added the new 1.5″ snowflakes too. 

Head over to my blog for more details!


  • These banners can be created with either our kraft or white paper banners:

Christmas 'Believe' Layout

When I received the fun Red Tag pack from May Arts Artful Accents my first thought was a Christmas Layout.  This is what I came up with and I still have several tags to use on other projects and they would be perfect for presents and packages.

Karen Baker:

Elegant Holiday Gift Tag Set

I’m so excited about the new line of products that May Arts is carrying! I decided to make an elegant set of gift tags. They were so easy to pull together with the Artful Accents Kraft Tags! I pulled a few May Arts silver and black ribbons and trims and applied to them to the tags in a variety of formats, all together they form a cohesive look for gift giving!

Making Quick & Easy Gift Tags

Oh, I just love the new Artful Accents!  Creating in a flash has just become easy with these wonderful pieces.  This sweet little burlap gift bag was created in a matter of minutes with the Blue & Green Tags and May Arts Ribbon!

'Beautiful' Vintage Themed Layout

'Beautiful' Vintage Themed Layout

I am simply in love with new range of artful accents by May Arts. Playing with them is definitely joyful. I always struggle while making small banners and then tying them together but these solve my problem. I have used a lot of distressing and layering on my layout. I tried to pop it up with a little bit of flowers. I hope you all will enjoy this new line or artful accents as much as I do.

    Love Mallika’s project – vintage is a favorite, guess because I’m vintage. This new line is wonderful. The glitter garland is so pretty. I’ve seen designs using something like this but they were never this elegant. the kraft, black and silver gift tags will be fun to use on my presents. I make all of my tags so this will make it a little easier for me.
    thanks for a wonderful release of new project.
