The Twinery Polka Dot Challenge is on!

Good morning!  I am so excited to share that The Twinery is now holding monthly themed challenges and I just cannot wait to see what you all come up with!  You can see all the details over on The Twinery Blog!

This months theme is Polka Dots!
For my take on the Polka Dot challenge, I decided to take things BIG and go with large polka dots!  I created five different sized spots using an adhesive backed paper and different colors of twine!

Here is a quick tutorial:
1.  Punch out five circles using a adhesive backed 
paper and cut a 20" piece of twine.

2.  Remove the adhesive back and place a small
circle of twine in the middle of the circle.

3.  Continue wrapping your twine 
around itself as shown.

4.  When you get the twine circle to the size 
you want, simply trim any excess adhesive 
paper away.  Press firmly down on the 
twine and you are good to go!

Adhesive Paper: Sticky Paper (PK Glitz) 
Cardstock: White and Black (Recollections)
Patterned Paper: 2wenty Thr3e 6x6 (Cosmo Cricket)
Punches: Circle Maker (Creative Memories) 
and Corner Punch (EK Success)
Embellishments: Woodchip Speech Bubble (Freckled Fawn) 
and Misc. Black Sequins

Be sure to head over to the The Twinery Blog to see more takes on the challenge and learn how you could enter to WIN!
