Embellishments, Trinkets and Trims

Hello there and welcome to the latest Frilly and Funkie challenge! Linda sells a huge array of beautiful embellishments, trinkets and trims in her store, from metal filigree pieces and charms to buttons, laces and ribbons. They can be the important focal point on a project or the final finishing touches that complete it. However you wish to use them lets see those embellishments, trinkets and trims in action on your vintage or shabby chic entries.

The winner will earn the chance of a Guest Designer spot here at Frilly and Funkie, and everyone who enters and follows the rules will go into the draw for the chance to win a $25 spending spree at The Funkie Junkie Boutique. And there are Top 3 Badges for three further outstanding entries, chosen by the Design Team, because choosing just one winner is so hard!

The guidelines for entering are simple; create a new vintage or shabby chic project following the challenge theme, link it below to your post (not just your blog) and also include a link back to this challenge in your post. You can combine our challenge with up to 10 challenges (including this one) to be in with a chance of winning. If you are entering through a public forum (such as Instagram) you'll need to include the words Frilly and Funkie Challenge. Also, please be sure to turn off your Word Verification so our Design Team can leave comments on your blogs. Make sure you follow these rules as unfortunately, we have had to eliminate entrants from the prize draws in the past.

This week we're bringing you more gorgeous projects, this time from the Funkie side of the Design Team. Make sure to click on each photo for a closer look and use the links to their blogs to find out more about how they were created;

  3. Something happened to the challenge link of posting the project. Tried several times to get to this since the link won't open at this time. At first the link open and wouldn't post my project. After that, it won't open at all. Thanks

  4. Nancy, you know I can't comment on IG, but I wanted to tell you how much I love this tag, and so happy you were able to get the link up to work for you. The pull chain is so clever! Hugs!
