May Arts+Simple Stories+Xyron

Welcome to Day #1 of the fabulous team-up between
I am honored to currently represent all three of these amazing companies!

Up for grabs will be a three prize packs including:
"Good Day Sunshine" Collection Kit from Simple Stories
1 Spool of Choice from May Arts
2.5" Sticker Maker from Xyron
Visit each of the manufacturers' blogs to leave a comment for the prize drawing!

 For my project today I have altered a wooden house shaped plaque with 
Simple Stories' "Story of Us" Collection and various ribbon/trim by May Arts

Putting it all together was made quick and easy with the 
9" Creative Station and other adhesives by Xyron.

 I trimmed the edges of the pieces with either a 1/4" ribbon or pom pom trim by May Arts.  
For the outer edge, I applied the 1/4" Doubled Sided High Tack Tape by Xyron and then
 pressed the ribbon in place.  

 The pre-cut wood set also came with a folk art style heart that I covered in paper and then 
embellished with chipboard stickers, enamel dots and cardstock stickers.

 To the top I made a large bow with May Arts faux burlap ribbon.
  I looped the ribbon back and forth and then cinched together at the center with twine. 
 To cover the twine, I used a large decorative brad. 
 The finished plaque makes a cute centerpiece for a wedding shower and then can be passed
 along to the bride-to-be! 

Products Used:
Simple Stories- Story of Us Collection: 5900- Collection Kit;  5901-Simple Basics Kit; 
5902 Fundamental 12X12 Stickers; 5927- Decorative Brads; 5928- Chipboard Stickers;

I just have to say that this is hands- down the coolest thing you do - adding paper and embellishments to plain old objects and making them into MASTERPIECES!!! This is just another excellent example of that talent!! Hugs to you!!
