The Twinery and Scor-Pal Blog Hop









Today we are excited not only about our very first Scor-pal blog hop but also to be celebrating the first anniversary of our friends at The Twinery. These two teams have joined forced for an amazing line up of projects that will show you the wonderful things you can create using your Scor-pal along with baker’s twine from The Twinery! From boxes and bags to cards and 3D projects the creativity by these two teams is sure to please.

If you came here by way of
Grace Hester's blog,
you are on the right track. If not, make sure you start at the beginning over at The Twinery's blog because there are terrific prizes for those who complete the hop by commenting on each blog. Since The
Twinery is celebrating all week, you'll have five days to enjoy this hop, so relax and have fun!





I made an adorable paper purse, that would be great for a little pre
sent or gift card. I used a template from Scor-Pal - which was so easy to put together! I assembled the purse using Scor-tape, but after the sides were together, I added hand stitching using the Lemondrop twine.
If you thought your Scor-pal was just for folding your cards in half... then are w
e gonna rock your world!




To decorate my bag, I used a felt flower and epoxy from Epiphany Crafts. I love being able to create a matching epoxy for and designer paper.


For the handle, I used lamp-worked glass beads, strung on necklace memory wire. This is stiff enough to hold the shape without flopping down.


Here's a recap of what you can win! So be sure to leave those comments!


I'm so glad you stopped by! I hope I've inspired you to give the Scor-pal a try.
Please make sure you leave a comment on my blog because there are terrific prizes for those who leave comments on each
designer's blogs!
The deadline for commenting is 11:59pm EST, Friday, August 19th.
Your next stop on the hop is Jenny Suchin's blog.
