DIY Interchangeable Banner and HUGE Pick Your Plum GIVEAWAY!

On Friday, I told you about my obsession with Instagram. Another guilty pleasure of mine? Pick Your Plum. Have you heard of them? It’s a deal-a-day site that specializes in AWESOMENESS. Seriously, though – they sell the best craft and baking supplies, clothes and accessories for a hugely discounted price. Items sell out quickly and that’s part of the fun! Every morning I check my email and Facebook to see what Plum is up for me to “Pick!”

Here are some examples of things that have been featured on Pick Your Plum (get ready to drool!) :

Here’s what I made using some great craft supplies from Pick Your Plum!
They sent me a great box of swag – here are some of the things that were included! 
I love the fun furniture knobs!
I decided to use the adorable chevron treat bags and paper clips with blanks. The red Baker’s Twine was an older PYP purchase (they have the best prices on twine!)
I started by threading the twine through the top of each paper clip. I looped it around to make it more secure. But it’s not permanent, so you can easily change everything around.
I added some small American Crafts Thickers stickers to the top of each paper clip – from 1 to 10. 

Then I clipped on the bags and went to town embellishing each pocket with more Pick Your Plum goodness!

All of these items came from Pick Your Plum:
{1} mini clothespins
{2}small craft tags
{3} washi tape
{4}baker’s twine
{5} embellished paper clips

I am going to use the banner for a little 10 Days of Service during Christmas. But I made it totally interchangeable so that I can use it for Birthdays, countdowns, and anything else you can clip to a pocket!

I tried it out with some favorite photos and I love it! It’s so easy to change. I can’t wait to write my hubby some love notes for his 30th birthday next week and stick them in the banner.
