July Trendy Twine Challenge

Hi everyone!!  It's my 1st group post as part of the Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine Design Team today :)  For July, we are featuring Berry Trendy Twine--love it!!  

The Challenge:

Create a project with red, white and blue (all three colors) and use coordinating Trendy Twine (only).  
**No Trendy Twin yet?  That’s okay too.  Use embroidery thread or hemp instead.**
Deadline is Saturday, July 28th.  Project must be new for the challenge.  No backlinking.  
Only one entry please.  Must include all items for the challenge.   (projects not qualified will be unlinked) Winner gets the Extreme Mini Pack and 50 yards of Berry Trendy Twine. 

I decided to make a small gift bag.

Here are the details:
  • Berry Trendy Twine
  • Bag cut at 6 inches from Independence Day -- 3D projects
  • Stamp from My Pink Stamper Yankee Doodles
  • Scotch Quick-Dry Adhesive
The bag comes from a Cricut Craft Room Exclusive.  I was not able to get it on my Gypsy yet so had to use Cricut Craft Room to cut this out.  I really prefer my Gypsy though, so hope I am able to sync it soon :)

Everyone was making really cute curly cues with their Twine, so I wanted to make mine curly for the bag.  I squeezed a bit of Scotch Quick-Dry between my fingers and ran them over the twine.  Then I curled it around a pen (that's what I had on my table) and let it dry.  I just LOVE how it looks!  I thread the Twine through the stars and also glued the outside edges down to keep it closed.

Make sure you head over to Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine to see all the fabulous projects today and Tuesday and make sure to participate before the end of the month--it's an awesome prize!

Also, you have a chance to win a fun prize over at the Trendy Twine Facebook page.  Follow that link to get all the details.  This is open until July 4.

Have a great day!
