So we'll set the world on fire, we can burn brighter than the sun....tonight...

Hey y'all, Happy Friday! Today I'm bringing you another fun designer "mash-up" brought to you by:







The Twinery, of course, has fabulous baker's twine, and Epiphany Crafts brings a super cool line of tools and accessories to allow crafters to create their own custom epoxy shapes and acrylic buttons. How fun is that?

This week they are giving away this fabulous prize package (over $65 retail value).


All you have to do is leave a comment on each blog along the hop. You can find a complete list from the entire week on The Twinery Blog. You won't want to miss all the creative projects!
Blog comments close on Sunday, June 3rd at 11:59pm (EDT) and the winners will be announced on The Twinery's blog and the Epiphany Crafts blog on Monday, June 4th.

When I started playing with the embellishments from Epiphany, I knew exactly what I wanted to make: a twine bookmark! I created the charm embellishment using some pretty patterned paper, and then threaded the twine through the loops. I braided lengths of Caribbean, Honeydew, and Cappuccino twine together to form the bookmark, and then secured the end with a glass bead.

I created a little pocket card so I could give this as a gift, punching out small half-circles to hold the bookmark onto the insert. 
Here's a photo of the full card:


This was a simple project, and certainly something that could be reproduced easily for quick and easy gifts. I love that you can customize the charm to fit your project or recipient!

Thanks so much for stopping by today...I'm so glad you did!
