Welcome!! Another fabulous day and a great day for a hop don't you think? Today is the third and final day of The Twinery and Top Dog Dies Blog Hop.
You should have hopped here from Amy's blog, if not, be sure to begin the hop HERE and work your way back here. Designers from both teams have projects created using baker's twine and dies from Top Dog Dies to wow you!
Before you get your twine in a tangle or die over those dies, let me share my wears!
I have a party "set up" to share with you today. Miss Mia will be turning 8 in a few short weeks and we are planning her birthday party. I thought the laural lace border die and decorative corner dies were perfectly suited to a name card and flowers for a napkin ring. And of course, Twinery baker's twine are the perfect compliment!
Here's a little step by step photo tutorial should you want to create your own flowers;
2. Cut five "petals" using the corner die by Top Dog Dies and slightly over lap each one to create the flower base.
3. Cut one flower using the Mini Flower die by Top Dog Dies for the flower center, applying a glue dot to the back of the flower.
4. Begin to twist your Twinery bakers twine to the create the twine petals on the back of the small flower using the glue dot to secure the twine.
5. Keep wrapping until you have five petals.
6. Tie a knot in the center to secure the twine. Snip edges. Apply another glue dot to the center.
7. Adhere top flower to base petals.
8. Bling it up with bling for a flower center.
Because every birthday girl wants to feel special, I made Mia a friendship bracelet from Twinery twine, some braiding and a button. Simple! Super simple!
Top Dog Dies was incredibly generous when they sent their product for this cross promotion and they sent me the Baby on Board Die Set as well! I created this little tid bit with that collection and once again used the border and corner dies for "support". A little solid and twisted bakers twine from the Twinery wrapped things up nicely, don't you think?
Follow the list below and hop along the blogs to see fabulous projects by both design teams. The Twinery is giving away a $25 sampler pack of twine to those who comment along the hop. Top Dog Dies is giving away $50 in exclusive wafer-thin dies to one lucky winner.
