Trendy Twine -- Love Joy Peace

Hello!  It's my turn to post over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine.  I have a fun treat bag on the blog today using the Cotton Muslin Bags and some Frosted Cranberry Trendy Twine.

I have to admit that I was very nervous about stamping on these bags.  I really did not know if it would actually work.  But I decided to give it a try.  I used some Winnie and Walter border stamps.  I inked up the words in blue MFT Hybrid ink.  It worked so well!  I can't wait to make some more of these!!  Before I stamped, I did a quick iron of the bag to make sure it was a flat surface.

After stamping, I decided to thread my twine through the bag for my ties.  There is already a bag pull on here, but I thought it would be fun to add the matching Frosted Cranberry Trendy Twine.  I found a long plastic needle and started to go through while the other was still in there (in case this didn't work).  I did have to scrunch it up and just pull it through but it worked!  Next time, I would do this before I iron it nice and flat 😉

Lastly, I decide to make a tag to go with it. The base is a Red Tag-It from the store.  Then I used three stamps from the APB Merry Christmas set.  I wanted to add the Joy to it but did not have room for the whole Joy to the World stamp.  So I carefully inked just the Joy and it really did work.  These are really great stamps -- they stamp so very well.  There are also a few Frosted Cranberry Sequins on the tag as well as the Frosted Cranberry Trendy Twine.

There will be lots more fun over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine, so I hope you keep visiting!
