The Twinery is giving away the Ultimate Color Sampler Pack!
Echo Park is giving away three collections!
For my project I created a piece that is both decor and a functional memo board.
I used a simple photo frame and added a background paper from Echo Park (behind the glass). I added various colors of The Twinery's twine (Charcoal, Stone, Peapod, and Honeydew) in three rows and adhered it so that the twine was accessible for hanging various accents.
I created some simple embellishments from various patterned papers from various Echo Park collections (detailed supply list is at the end of this post) and attached them to the twine strands. I added enough that it can stand on its own as a decor piece, but few enough that I still have room to add in small photos or notes.
Just the three strands of twine on the board still looked a little bare to me, so I tucked in a few small bits around the edges of the frame.
It's no secret that I am a fan of Echo Park's papers and I think it must be pretty obvious how much I love The Twinery's twine. And I extra super duper love how well the work together.
I won't be stopping with today's project...I have more to come...so stay tuned!
Thanks for stopping by today!
