Trendy Bakers Twine -- Sunshine and Smiles

Hello everyone! I'm posting some treats over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine.  I used our twine of the month, Dark Citrus Trendy Twine, along with Medium Kraft Pillow BoxesPetite Kraft Metal Rim TagsChoose Happy Stamp Set, and the Lemon Shaker Medley.


After I filled my Pillow Box with candy, I wrapped my box in a strip of blue paper and then wrapped my Dark Citrus Trendy Twine around the long edge. 


I stamped my sentiments from Choose Happy onto the petite tags and then tied it on the top of the box.  Then I just added a few flowers from the Lemon Shaker Medley.


I hope you have a great rest of your week!

Trendy Bakers Twine -- Ready for Spring!

Hello everyone! I'm posting over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine.  I'm showing you some cards I made a few weeks ago and haven't posted.  I used Totally White Trendy Twine on one and Limeade Trendy Twine on the other. I don't know about you, but I'm ready for some pretty weather!  These cards make me think of the nice days that Spring can have and I'm dreaming of 😊


On this card I used the Unity Stamp Wreath Builder set and kept it simple.  Since you need a square piece of cardstock, I knew my Totally White Trendy Twine would be perfect for the bottom part of the card with a bow in the middle.


This card used Limeade Trendy Twine and Lemon Tart Sequins.  I love the yellow and green together and this paper had both.  So I used my Limeade Trendy Twine on the curve of the card stock and my Lemon Tart Sequins as accents.

I hope you have a great day!

Trendy Bakers Twine -- Much Love

Hello all!  I'm posting over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine today and sharing a card that could be a valentine, but it doesn't have to be!  I used Cherry Licorice Trendy Twine and two different sequin mixes from Annie's Paper Boutique.


The heart tree is from MFT stamps.  I thought it would be perfect for my Cherry Licorice Trendy Twine.  I made the red base, and the white top layer.  Then I wrapped my twine around the card and tied the bow at the tree base in the middle.  


I then cut out a small tag and embossed my sentiment onto it.  Then I took a black sequin from the Lemon Midnight Sequin Mix and a red one from the Candy Cane Sequins.  It's good to own them all from the store so that I can mix and match LOL!

Have a wonderful day!

Trendy Bakers Twine -- XO OX Treats

Hello everyone!  I'm posting over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine today.  It's finally February!  January really did seem like a very long month.  It didn't help that it rained a lot where I live.  This month, the Trendy Gals are showcasing Cherry Licorice Trendy Twine.  I also used Candy Cubes 2x2 Boxes and the Smile Stamp Set.


I have these cute buffalo plaid SVG files that I just got last week.  They go perfectly with our Cherry Licorice Trendy Twine!  The original plan was to just put them on the box, but I wanted them to pop.  So I wrapped a 1 1/2 inch piece of white card stock around the box after wrapping my Twine around the box a few times.


Next, I put foam tape on all the pieces.  Even the tiny heart.  It was thing pieces of tape! There's an XO and OX on each box.


To finish it off, I cut a small tag from a die I have and stamped the Smile from the Smile Stamp Set onto it and punched a hole.  Then I slipped it through one of the pieces of twine and finished it off with a box.  I also added a small red enamel dot that I just picked up this weekend.  I love craft shopping for February!
Hope you have a great day!!
