Happy Easter with Trendy Twine

Hello!

Everyone at Trendy Twine wanted to with you a Happy Easter!  We all made fun projects for you.  You can see all of them over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine.

I made a fun and easy treat container full of Starburst Jelly Beans -- the best ones :)  The Milk Bottle, Tag, Circle Reinforcement, and of course, the fabulous twine can be found over at Annie's Paper Boutique.


Products used:



I used some Scotch Quick Dry Glue on the twine strand to make them a bit curly.  Just wet the strands with glue and wind around a pen or something round--let dry and your twine will be curly!



Please stop by Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine to see all the fun projects, and have a Happy Easter!

Bunny Bag

Hi everyone! 

I made this cute bunny bag a while ago.  It's a free file from SVG Cuts.  I can't remember the size--it doesn't come on the Design Space for the Explore machine at the size listed.  It's still pretty cute though :)


I used some fun Strawberry Cupcake Trendy Twine on the top.  


The feet are pop dotted on and I added some Frosted Lace Stickles.  You need to draw on the whiskers and mouth--I always do one side better than the other :)  The eyes will cut out, but I didn't size them correctly so I just used some stick on gems.


Have a great day!

Trendy Twine Day

Hi everyone!! It's my turn over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine and today I have a treat box you can get from Annie's Paper Boutique (used a bit differently) along with the fun Twisted Gumball Trendy Twine (one of the April spotlights and on sale).


But you'll need to head over to the blog to see the whole project ;)  I just have that sneak above for you.  I used a lot of fun goodies from the store and also a My Creative Time die and stamp.  I hope you head over and check it out!



And while you are there, be sure to check out this month's challenge.  I really hope you enter!

Have a fabulous day!

Chicks Rule

Hello everyone!

I have a cute little chicks card to show you today.  You can buy these cute stamps from Annie's Paper Boutique--the same place you can buy the fabulous Trendy Twine like the Lemon Tart I used.


The stamp set is from Jillibean Soup and and you can find it in the store HERE--it's so cute!!  My chicks could have been lined up a bit better, but I'm a bit out of practice at stamping image cards :)  I knew I wanted to use the fabulous Lemon Tart Trendy Twine to go along with my yellow chicks.  I think the paper might be Jillibean Soup too, but honestly, I pulled it out of my scrap pile.  The sequins (one of my new favorite embellishments) are from Doodlebug Designs.

Don't forget about the Challenge over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine.  You need to have an Easter or Flower theme, real or faux stitching, and of course, some Trendy Twine!

Thanks for stopping by!!

Spring Has Sprung -- Trendy Twine

Hi everyone! There's a new challenge over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine and we are showing you what you should have on your project so that you can enter too :) 

I made a cute Hello Kitty bunny card to show you.  I just love my new Cricut Explore and that I can now cut SVG's too!


We are featuring Bubblegum Taffy and Twisted Gumball Trendy Twines this month.  I used one of my favorites (it's really hard to have one favorite Trendy Twine), Bubblegum Taffy on my card.  For the challenge, you need to use Trendy Twine, Easter or floral them and stitching, real or faux.  


Supplies Used:

Hop on over to Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine to see the other great projects from the design team.  And stop by Annie's Paper Boutique to stock up on the twine specials and your Easter goody packaging supplies!


I hope to see your project on the challenge link--Have a fabulous day!!

Bunny Treats



Hi everyone!  I was saving these for a later post, but decided to post today so you have a chance to buy these goody packages in time for Easter :)


Everything, except the bunny and candy, can be found at Annie's Paper Boutique.  I knew when I got these cute bunny tags that I wanted to use the marshmallow bunny peeps in them.  And my daughter saw this peep bunny that had two 4 packs of bunny peeps with it. Perfect!


I love the shape of this Medium Candy Rectangle Clear Box.  And the row of 4 peeps was perfect for this.


 Then I just wrapped some Twisted Gumball Trendy Twine around the box so there's not so much clear showing :)  The Bunny Peep Tag can also be found in the store and you can pick from 4 colors or get an assortment!


Before I found the bunny peeps, I had used some Medium Candy Bags and filled them with some Whoppers candy eggs.  After sealing the top, I wrapped some Bubblegum Taffy Trendy Twine around the top.  I added a Bunny Peep Tag to one and a cute little Bunny Peep sticker to the front of the other. 

These would work for the current challenge that just started last week.  Check out the details HERE.  I really hope you join in and play with us!

Have a great weekend!
