Tell us more about yourself! What do you do for a living? Where ya from?

  • My name is Bre Bertolini, you can find me on Instagram at @brepurposed and my blog is www.brepurposed.com. I’m currently working as a Project Manager/Graphic Designer and I’m originally from Skaneateles, NY, but currently live in North East, PA.

What are your passions? What inspires you

  • Creativity is a big passion of mine. I’ve always been a creative person, and since I started my blog, I’ve realized this is exactly what I need to be doing. I’m also very passionate about design in general. I’m a graphic designer and just love challenging myself and exploring with colors and fonts.I can be inspired by anything and love when that inspiration strikes in random places. I could be driving, taking my dog for a walk, or strolling the aisles of a craft store. You never know when you’ll be inspired but there’s nothing better than when you have that a-ha moment!

Tell us more about your project!

  • This project was the definition of “Trash to Treasure”. I was driving to work one day and it happened to be garbage day. I did the slow drive, trying to scope out all the goodies and spotted this awesome lattice someone had kicked to the curb. I quickly pulled over, threw it in the back of my car and headed to work. I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with it yet, but I knew I couldn’t let it be trashed. When I got home I immediately spray painted it this awesome mint color I had picked up a few days before and that’s when my idea started coming to life. I don’t have a craft room or real office space, so all my craft supplies and accessories are just thrown into our spare bedroom in a completely disorganized fashion. I knew this would be the perfect way to display some of my supplies and create an inspiration board too. I love that I can easily change what’s hanging on it and how it doubles as organization and art!

Supplies:

  • PostalPix Instagram Prints

  • Nail (and hammer)

Instructions:

  • Find a branch that would be good for displaying. (We recommend at a location you like because sentimental found objects are always a good idea, right?)
  • Drill two small holes at either end of the branch, about an inch in on either sides. The width should just be wide enough to fit the twine through.
  • String the twine through on and tie a big knot through it. Depending on how low you wanted to hang the branch, now would be a good time to determine the length of the twine.
  • Hang it up now so you know how much space you’re working with.
  • Ronja takes this time out to adhere photos to wooden panels, but we say PostalPix photo prints will be a great alternative! Totally not biased or anything.
  • String up your prints and tie it around the branch. That’s it!

Instructions:

  • Decide what color or colors you would like your tissue paper tassels to be. The world is your oyster! (Seriously, the amount of colors out there in the tissue paper industry is pretty crazy these days.)
  • One piece of tissue paper will yield one tassel so get yours all ready to go by laying it flat on the safe cutting surface. Fold the paper in half long ways (thing “hot dog” like in elementary school) and then fold in half the other way (“hamburger” style this time.)
  • Get sharp scissors and start cutting half inch strips towards the fold to create the fringe. This can get pretty mundane and repetitive, so just take your time and listen to some tunes!
  • Unfold the tissue paper and start to roll it from one end to the other.
  • Just twist the middle and tie the rope to it and that’s one tassel done! Complete the rest of your tassels and attach as many photos as you’d like on it with clothespins.
