Trendy Twine -- Apples and Pens

Hello everyone!  It's my turn to post over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine today.  It's a super simple back to school treat using the Skinny Candy Bags and some yummy Lemon Tart Trendy Twine :)

I have a thing for pens and all kinds of office supply goodies, so when I was looking for something fun to put in my Skinny Candy Bag, I was very excited to find these fun gel pens.  I picked up a few in different colors, but these yellow ones were perfect for my Lemon Tart Trendy Twine.  I was even more excited to see that they are glitter gel pens :)

I used my Cricut to cut out this adorable apple tag.  It's a small two inches.  I was going to stamp something on it, but really like the normal apple look.  I did add some small Nuvo Drops on the green leaf. (I am LOVING the Nuvo Drops--they are so fun!)

The Lemon Tart Trendy Twine is wrapped around the Skinny bag a few times at the time and then I finished it off with a bow.  It's pretty simple, but I wanted to show off the pen in the Skinny Candy Bag to show that you can used other things besides candy in these great bags.

Hope you have a fabulous day!
