Wrapping With The Twinery

Hello and welcome to my contribution to the 
Imaginisce & The Twinery Blog Hop
What an exciting week this will be!


Here is the line-up for today's hop:
The Twinery Blog: www.thetwineryblog.com
Imaginisce Blog: www.imaginisceblog.com
Shellye McDaniel: www.paperedcottage.blogspot.com <---YOU ARE HERE :)
Angelica Suarez: www.typicalaquarian.com
Sarah Andreotti: www.vintagepearstudio.com

For my project, I paired up Imaginisce's Sole Sisters patterned papers
 and sticker embellishments with 
The Twinery's Maraschino and Charcoal Baker's Twine.  


For the flowers, I used the I Top Large, Medium and Small Paper Punches and then wrapped the center bloom in Maraschino Twine. I then outlined my patterned paper with Charcoal Twine and stitched a couple of V's at the right corners. I have personally found that the best way to attach 
twine as a border is to use a fine point glue pen (such as Martha Stewart's brand).
For the leaves (sorry, I left this off initially...I've had a couple of requests about them) I used a 
Cuttlebug die, Persia, which can be found right here at Provo Craft :)


Both Imaginisce and The Twinery will be having a give-a-way!
The Twinery Giveaway
"I Dream in Twine" Packages (retail $32)
to 3 lucky winners
Imaginisce Giveaway
Makin' Waves collection pack (retail $37)
to 3 lucky winners
(This is an album that I created with Makin' Waves and is not an actual prize).
The album also sports TONS of The Twinery Baker's Twine...you can see more photos here.

Now it's off to Angelica's Blog
 I hope that you thoroughly ENJOY this fabulous week of hopping!
It was a pleasure having you here...come again :)
