Paper Posies and Tombow partner up this week. Be sure to check the Tombow blog for inspiration all week from the other design team members.

Someone gave me this little plaque as a gag gift of sorts and I needed a little home decor project for Tombow using the Paper Posies kit that they sent me.

It has fun paper by October afternoon that I used as well as this little tag that was attached to a mini chipboard ticket album, so I decided to alter it too.

Our bathroom is in SERIOUS need of being redone. But money and time is tight right now. Even if you have a room (or whole house LOL) that needs redone, you can still do little things to make it look nice until you can get to it. Now I know of what I'm talking about cuz ours seriously needs regutted. I could get discouraged by how bad it looks OR do little things to keep it looking as nice as possible considering all that needs done.

Okay, I digress, back to my project. It is soooo easy and yet adds a fun little element to the room. I cut patterned paper to fit inside the frame and attached it with Tombow's Mono Adhesive Power Bond. Then I used the same adhesive to attach these fun letters that were in my Paper Posies kit.

Perfect word for a bathroom don't ya think? Ü I could have left it just like that, but it needed just a little bit more.

I printed the verse out on cardstock and attached it to the chipboard tag with the Power Bond adhesive and then stamped a flower from Darcie's set and grunged the edges a bit, added some vintage rayon ribbon and there you have it. Here is a tip for cutting smooth rounded edges: It is hard to cut rounded edges to look nice. Just cut and adhere to chipboard and then sand the edges with an emory board. Makes it smooth and look more professional.

Super easy, super fun and super cute. What do you have around the house that you can alter with some pretty papers to pretty up your home?
