Here’s what you’ll need:

Here’s what you do:

  • Pre-cut desired amount of circles out of the glitter paper and fold circles in half.
  • Also pre-cut desired twine length, make sure to leave room for tying.


  • lay twine in fold being sure to leave space at both ends for tying


  • glue down the flaps to secure on twine


  • repeat until the desired length is achieved
  • hang, and enjoy!



Sam Flax Project: Completed!

I spent the last weekend of October in Atlanta installing a project I had been working on for Sam Flax. The installation went really well, I had lots of help from my wonderfully handy husband. It was so great to see everything I had been working on come together in the space. I’m so grateful that they gave me the opportunity to transform their space. Go check out their new space, not only to see my work but to check out their amazing new building!!! I’m not the best photographer….but here are a few photos I snatched!

I was in love with the paper dot garland during this project. They have an amazing collection of fine art papers over there!

Those large paper flowers were made using their watercolor paper.

Tissue paper garland and paper bunting…so fun!


A game of telephone but with artists? I’m in! If you didn’t catch the opening of this fun show curated by good friend Rubi McGrory and Jamie Kutner, then you should head over to thincsavannah and check it out! June 3rd is the last day. The above image is a detail shot of my piece and the image below is the invite for the show.

Gallery hours are Monday through Friday, 9-5. I especially love this piece by my friend Kay Wolfersperger!
