The Twinery + Imaginisce Blog Hop


Hello everyone! Welcome to the hop! You  should have arrived here from Ro Phillipson's blog. If not, you'll want to start back at The Twinery's blog or Imaginisce's blog to get started and be sure you don't miss anyone!

I was really excited to get to work with some new products from Imaginisce. They paired up so well with twine from The Twinery and I loved my finished project!
I used papers and embellishments from the Sole Sisters line to make a gift bow. This was easy by cutting 1x10 inch strips, adhering the ends to make loops, then stapling them together in the middle. I made a paper medallion using the houndstooth paper topped with a Chipboard Sticker piece. Before adhering that to the bow, I looped Caribbean, Maraschino and Buttercream twine around on the bow, leaving a long tail to tie into a bow. I also added the tag from the Sticker Stackers topped with a pop-dotted flower from the Die-cuts package.


Here's the finished gift. Before adding my gift bow, I wrapped the box in several strands each of Caribbean, Maraschino and Buttercream twine, which coordinated with the Sole Sisters line perfectly!


Here's the info on the awesome giveaway:
