The Twinery & Echo Park Anniversary Blog Hop


Welcome to the last stop on the Twinery's Anniversary blog hop!  We are so glad you could join us for the 1st Anniversary Celebration blog hop with The Twinery & Echo Park Papers. 

If you came here by way of Tamara Tripodi's blog, you are on the right track!  If not, be sure to start at the beginning over at The Twinery's blog because there are terrific prizes for those who complete the hope by commenting on each blog.  You'll have two days to enjoy this hop, so have fun!

You might be wondering what is up for grabs!


The Ultimate Color Sampler Pack from The Twinery

and


3 Paper Collections from Echo Park Paper!

To be eligible to win, just leave a comment on each blog in the hop!  Good luck!

For this blog hop I wanted to make a fun gift set.


I used the "Summer Days" paper pack by Echo Park.  I love, love this paper! Did you know that you can get this in 12x12 size or a 6x6 size pad?  The die cut stickers and the tags I used on the bag and the gift are both from the 12x12 pack.  They are SO FUN!! 


Here's a closeup of some of the details on the gift set.  I used the Twinery Twine on my bag to tie the ends on the banner at the top, to tie the tag onto the bag and to tie a bow around the tag.


And here is the gift inside the bag!  I made a belly band around the tin and tied 3 strands of twine around it.  I used Lilac, Lemondrop & Caribbean twine.  Every inch or so I tied a knot in the twine to add some interest. 


This is a view of the back and you can see the knots I tied better.


I also stitched twine around the outside of the sun. I love how this looks on the tag!

Are you wondering what is inside that tin?


It is a set of mix & match rainbow & cloud magnets!  I die cut Echo Park paper & magnet strips with rainbow & cloud dies and then glued the pieces together.  (I cut the paper & magnets separately because the sandwich was too thick otherwise).  I cut several different patterns of each type of shape so that the recipient could mix & match to her heart's content!


Here are a few of them on the front of the refrigerator!  My 3 year old daughter insisted that we had to make clouds with the ice cream cone paper!  She helped me die cut these and had the best time "helping" and offering advice! :)  So if you don't give this as a gift, it is a great activity to make with your children!

Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope I've inspired you!  Please make sure you leave a comment on my blog to be eligible for some fantastic prizes! The deadline for commenting is 11:59pm EST, Friday, August 19th. Prizes will be announced on Saturday, August 20th on The Twinery's blog.

Supplies:
Twine: The Twinery
Patterned Paper, Die Cut Stickers & Tags:  Echo Park Paper Summer Days
Rainbow & Cloud Dies:  Lil' Inker Designs
