The Twinery & Bella Blvd Product Showcase




Hello!! Welcome to a product showcase week where design team members for both The Twinery & Bella Blvd will be sharing projects featuring products from both companies!  We will be sharing projects all week long, so be sure to visit The Twinery's blog each day to find out whose blog to visit!  There are prizes up for grabs too (I'll share more about that later)!


I was so excited to receive the products from Bella Blvd to work with!  Their products are amazing and I had such a wonderful time coming up with projects using them!  So hold on, I have several things to share today!


First up is this card that I made for Teacher Appreciation week.  I used three different papers from the Bella Blvd Sunshine Happiness collection.  Even the name of the paper makes me smile!  I LOVED the patterns included in this paper set.  I made three different sizes of accordion flowers and then used a button in the center tied with Lilac, Lemondrop & Pink Sorbet twine.  I love how well the twine coordinates with the papers!  Perfect match!


Next up I used the gorgeous papers and matching accessories to make a couple gift favor baskets.  


This is the more feminine version of the gift basket.  Can you see the double sided pattern on the inside of the basket?  This is so fun!  It is decorated inside & out easily.  In the little glassine bags are some candies for a party favor.  The bag is topped with a coordinating sticker and then tied with Pink Sorbet twine.


Here is a closeup of the front of the bag.  The heart is a coordinating chipboard shape that is layered on top of a patterned paper strip that I cut.  I seriously think that blue polka dotted paper was made just for me! I LOVE it!  On top of the heart is the cutest bow that has been die cut from another pattern (it matches the inside of the bag) from the set.  I wrapped Lilac twine around the center as an accent.  One more little detail...isn't that little flag adorable?  Yep! Another coordinating embellishment. 


This bag is slightly more masculine, although my husband didn't think any "boy" would want a "purse", LOL!  So maybe it isn't as "boyish" as I thought.


Here is the closeup of the front, decorated similarly to the version above.  I tied the center of this bow with Mandarin twine.

I have one more project to share with you today.  You know how much I LOVE buttons!  Well, Bella Blvd has those too!  Swoon!


When I saw this button I knew immediately that I had to make it into a ring.  It is a gorgeous pattern, so soft and pretty!  (You can find it in my Etsy store later this week!)


To package up the ring, I put it in a small organza bag and tied it with Pink Sorbet twine.  The flower sticker is attached to the back of a button for a little added embellishment.  Quick & easy gift packaging but it still looks great!

So...are you curious about the prizes?  The Twinery is giving away an "Original Sampler" twine pack to three winners!  


To be eligible to win, comments must be left on each of the participating Twinery's designer blogs all five days of the showcase (there are 3 blogs per day, Monday - Friday, including The Twinery's blog).  You can find a list of participating designers each day on The Twinery's blog.  Deadline to visit and leave comments to win is 11:59 EST, Sunday, May 20th.  Winners will be announced on Tuesday, May 22nd on The Twinery's blog.  

Bella Blvd is also having a giveaway and you can visit the Bella blog for all the details!

Thank you so much for visiting!  I can't wait to hear what you think of all these super fun products!
