Let's Talk Turkey...and Twine!

Hi everyone!  It's the beginning of the month which means a Trendy Twine post!  This month, we are featuring Orange Truffle Trendy Twine--perfect for your Thanksgiving projects.

Today, I have a treat bottle for you.  I was making a card, but had a total card fail (twice).  Oh well, I'll just come up with a better card for next time :)

The turkey is from Create a Critter Cricut cartridge and cut at 3 1/2 inches--which is why the card was not working. But he looks cute on the Starbucks coffee bottle so all is well.

I wanted to cover the lid somehow and decided to swirl the Orange Truffle Trendy Twine on the top.  This seemed like it would be easy, but took a bit more time that I thought.  The Quick Dry Glue was drying quicker than on a card and I had it everywhere.  But it turned out great in the end.

To finish it off, I added some twine around the top with a bow and a tag for my sentiment.  And I also added a bit to my turkey's hat.

Now, be sure to head over to Twine it Up! with Trendy Twine to see the other design team's turkey projects--they are so cute!!

There's no challenge this month, but I hope you find some time to play with some Trendy Twine.  So head over to Annie's Paper Boutique to get what you need for your holiday crafting :)
