Trendy Twine - I Miss You

Hi everyone!

It's my turn to post over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine today.  I have a quick card for you today featuring the fabulous Nautical Trendy Twine.

I cut out this fun life preserver from my Cricut.  The Nautical Trendy Twine was perfect for the 'rope' around the outside.  I taped a bit to the back and glued right on the edge to make the twine stick the way I wanted. 

The waves paper was perfect for this card.  Then I added some sequins to finish it off.

Be sure to visit Annie's Paper Boutique for all your twine and packaging needs!

Have a great day!

I played along with the challenge using the Card Sketch shown here.

Trendy Twine - Treats For You

Hello everyone! It's my turn to post over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine today and I have some fun treats using the Medium Candy Bags and the fabulous Nautical Trendy Twine.

I filled the Medium Candy Bag with yellow skittles.  I really wanted to use Starburst, but didn't really like the way they settled in there.  I should have gone for chocolate nuggets especially since I love to eat them :)

Next I cut some yellow polka dot paper 3 inches by 2 1/2 inches.  I scored it at 1 1/2 and folded it over.  Then I added my anchor border cut from my Cricut, stamped my sentiment and wrapped my Nautical Trendy Twine and tied the bow.  I used glue dots on both sides of the yellow dot paper to stick the header to the bag.

I do like how they turned out! This is a great twine twist and the bags are a really good deal for the price.  Be sure to head over to Annie's Paper Boutique to pick these up while they are on sale!  

Have a fabulous day!!
