Welcome followers and fans of The Twinery and Momenta! We have an amazing line-up of designers presenting crafty and creative projects using the most colorful, fully saturated, luscious baker's twine on the market.

That's right, it's a Blog Hop!


You should have arrived here 
from the blog of the creative Cristal Hobbs.

I made my first project using all the sherbet colored shades of baker's twine from The Twinery: cantaloupe, shore, flax, orchid, blossom, buttercream, honeydew,  and caribbean. It's a mobile I made to decorate a corner of my craft room, not in front of the door as you see here...this was just my staging area. In addition to my The Twinery twine and an embroidery hoop, I used embellishments from the Kaleidoscope collection from Momenta. The Clear Layered Stickers, Flair Buttons, Sticker Kit and 5x7 Cardstock Pad all were used to embellish the mobile.

Please note, I don't recommend placing a mobile of this sort above a crib as some of the items may fall and could cause a choking hazard to the most precious gift you'll ever receive: your child.

Using a small serving tray from the craft store, I painted it black, placed some glitter embellished double-sided cardstock in the bottom, used Blossom, Cantaloupe and Orchid baker's twine to hide the edges and covered a raw chipboard frame I had on hand with more paper from the Kaleidoscope 5x7 cardstock pad from Momenta before choosing a sticker and tag from the Sticker Kit and a Clear Layered Sticker which I added to the top of the tag. 


What a sweet little gift I now have to send to my friend of 32 years for her birthday!
