Paper Issues and The Twinery "X Marks the Spot" Blog Hop!


Hello crafty pals! I am so excited to be sharing a project I made for the brand new "Paper Issues" Challenge! For the next two weeks, we are being sponsored by The Twinery and we have a fun challenge to play along with! It is called "X Marks the Spot"!


All you need to do is link up an “X” marks the spot twine project over at the Twinery by the 13th to win this generous prize of twine

And also link up the same project at Paper Issues by the 21st for a chance at wining this solid twine sampler pack!


For the next two weeks, we are being challenged to use Twine on our project!! I was excited to cut with a new Sizzix tree die I recently picked up and I went to work, decorating my tree with some twine, in a criss-cross fashion!


Twine is such a fun and easy accent to use, and I love that it adds the look of ribbon to my Christmas cards, without all the "bulk"!! Perfect for mailing Christmas cards!!!

Supplies:
Stamps: None
Papers: MME and Stampin' Up
Inks: None
Extra: Twinery Twine, 5 Petal Punch (Retired SU!), Gemstones, Recollections Tags, Big Shot, Sizzix Tree Die

Here is paper issues hop line up have fun and don’t forget to...
