November Trendy Twine Challenge -- Many Thanks

Hello everyone!!  It's time for the November Trendy Twine Challenge--Many Thanks, a Thanksgiving or Thank you project.  And we are showcasing the Orange Truffle Trendy Twine which happens to be on sale this month.

I decided to make these cute little boxes for Thanksgiving treats.  Thanksgiving is at my house, but this year that means I need to clear away my craft things for a few days since I have taken over the dining room.  I just don't think Thanksgiving would be the same if we don't sit down at the table all together :)

Here are the details:

  • Orange Truffle Trendy Twine
  • Box and leaf from Close to My Heart Artiste Cartridge cut at 4 1/2 inches
  • Bazzill paper
  • Signo white pen
  • Scotch quick dry glue
There is not much needed to put these together!  You actually glue one small strip and close it off by tying the  twine through holes at the top that you can't see since that fabulous leaf is on top!

We would love for you to play along with us this month!  Here are the rules of the challenge:

Create a project for someone that you are thankful for.
Must have an Autumn theme, 
the color brown,
stitching (faux or real),
and Trendy Twine.
*If you do not have Trendy Twine,
use hemp, jute, or embroidery thread only*
Deadline is Friday, November 30th.
Project must be new for the challenge.
No back linking.
Only one entry, please.
Must include all items for the challenge.
Projects not qualified will be unlinked.
(Including the wrong twine)
Prize: $10 Coupon to Annie's Paper Boutique
