the twinery + imaginisce | blog hop


It's the last day that The Twinery and Imaginisce have teamed up together and I'm your very last stop. You probably arrived here via my talented teammate Kathy Skou. If not, just head over here for the line-up so you don't miss a project, or a chance to win!

The colorful designs from Imaginisce led me to begin thinking about July 4th when I saw the mixture of fun pattern and bold colors.


Using a combination of Red Shimmer, Platinum Shimmer and Blue Shimmer, I created a banner with fun baker's twine swirls to adorn the centers.


Using a few glue dots adhered to a circle punched shape, I went around and around the circle, filling it with my desired shade of shimmer baker's twine. For the center star medallion, I used one of the Sticker Stackers from Imaginisce along some of their sticker letters to share our We  USA sentiment. To make the plant stake look 3D, seen below left, I just adhered two of the baker's twine pinwheels to one another and used a chop stick for my plant stake.
