Chic Tags + the Twinery blog hop!

 Hello!  It is no secret that I haven't been blogging lately.  OK,  I have been taking a break...but... I am back today with an awesome blog hop!  Chic Tags + the Twinery!  It doesn't get much better than that!  So sit back, grab a coffee and enjoy our hop!  We will be going strong today AND tomorrow with lots of projects so be sure to check back both days for more inspiration.

You probably got here from the Chic Tags site.... If not, be sure to check out the blog here.

Here is the layout that I have contributed to the hop.  I couldn't decide on just one way to use this twine... so instead I used it in three ways!



This little 3x4 card was jazzed up by just wrapping some twine around it and then tying a bow.


I used a paper piercer and a ruler to prepunch hole along the acetate letters and then used twine to hand stitch through them.  Since the twine is thicker than embroidery floss I just went through each hole only once. 




And finally, I made a banner with little tags hanging from the twine.


There are so many fun things you can do with this stuff!  I can't wait to try more...

Next up on our hop is Rebecca VanDeMark.  Be sure to stop by her blog and leave her some love.  

And in case you get lost, you can check back here for the blog hop order:
