Xyron Design Team Pinterest Challenge Day Four!

We hope you have enjoyed our week long Xyron Design Team Pinterest Challenge!  We are OBSESSED with Pinterest (as is the rest of the world) and all this week we challenged our Designers to create a project inspired by our "Not Xyron but Should Be" board.  They brought new life to some old projects and made us want to get crafty!

Looking for a fun and easy idea for your next party but don't want to break the bank?  Then head over to Virginia Fynes' blog!  She shares a tutorial for creating these super festive plastic cups inspired by some she found on our Pinterest board.  What a great idea for using your ribbon stash!  :)

Katie Skilton re-created this cute hanging photo frame with some fresh new colors and techniques. The coolest part - she made the entire project with just a few sheets of paper and some embellishments!

Stacy Rodriguez took a cool technique (vellum photos on a glass candle holder) and made it even cooler by creating fantastic mixed media home decor item!  She shares a quick tutorial on her blog today - this would make a great hostess gift!

Pinky Hobbs makes upcycling home decor easy with a quick tutorial on her blog for creating this neat map lampshade!  Inspired by this lampshade Pinky shares some great tips for working with oddly shaped (or hard to cover) lampshades to create something one-of-a-kind!

You will never guess what this cute notebook is made out of - a cereal box!  Inspired by this notebook Shannon Morgan created this super cute project and shares a full tutorial with us on her blog today.  This brings whole new meaning to recycling your cardboard!

We hope this week has inspired you to take a new look at some old projects and create something special - we'd love to see your Pinterest inspired projects on our Facebook Page!  Have a great weekend everybody!
