Skipping Stones Design and The Twinery Hop

This Skipping Stones Design Tuesday  have a treat in store for you! Skipping Stones is joining up with The Twinery to bring you a fabulous 2 day blog hop! You should have hopped here from Monika Wrights Blog. If you are just starting out on the hop be sure to head back to The Twinery so you don't miss any of the stops on the way. 


To create the grapes, I used a hole punch and glued the circles into a grape cluster shape. 

The tendrils were created by wrapping the twine around a bamboo skewer and heating with a heat tool. After they cooled they take on a spiral curl. 



Next up on our hop is the amazing Teri Anderson! Want to know what you can win? The Twinery is giving away a Colorful Bunch Sampler Pack' (retail $20) to one lucky commenter from all the blogs. Skipping Stones Designs will be giving away one of the new Grapeful sets along with a "surprise" set. 


You'll have until Friday May 25th 11:59 est to leave comments. Winners will be announced on The Twinery Blog Sunday, May 27th.

I see a lot of people have already commented on your "grape" cluster, but it really is so cute!!! A super-creative idea and I appreciate the tip on heating the twine while it's wrapped around a mandrel. It created perfect tendrils.
