Trendy Twine & Mini Popcorn Boxes

Happy Father's Day!  
The Trendy Gals are showcasing the new Mini Popcorn Boxes today.  

I picked the Lemon Mini Popcorn Box and paired it with Dark Citrus Trendy Twine.  I also used the Choose Happy Stamp Set, a Navy Tag-It and some Lemon Tart Sequins.


These are just the cutest little boxes!  I had some small stamps on my desk and realized this cute pineapple stamp would be the perfect size for the Mini Popcorn Box.  I stamped and dies cut four of them and pop dotted them to all the sides of the box.


Next, I glued a strip of Dark Citrus Trendy Twine around the bottom of the box.  It matches so well.  I wanted to have a sentiment sticking out and starting searching for something that might work.  Then I saw the Navy Tag-It in my stash.  It sticks out just perfectly in the box.  I added the Rock this day from the Choose Happy Stamp Set and some more Dark Citrus Trendy Twine for the tag topper and a few Lemon Tart Sequins.


Make sure to visit Twine it Up! with Trendy Twine today to see all the fun boxes the Trendy Gals made!

Have a wonderful day!

Trendy Twine -- Just for You!

Hello everyone! I'm posting over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine and today I have some cute mini cards to share with you.  We are featuring the Totally Blue Trendy Twine along with the Square Glassine Envelopes. I also used the adorable Foodie Planner Stamps, the You've Got Mail Stamps and some Trendy Page Dots to close the envelopes.


I made some some 2x2 cards (approximately).  They were the perfect size to fit into these cute envelopes.  I stamped the cupcake from the Foodie Planner Stamps and the sentiment from the You've Got Mail set.  Then I added my Totally Blue Trendy Twine with a bow.


I slipped the cards into the Square Glassine Envelopes.  I love that you can see the cute card through these fun envelopes


The envelopes don't have a seal so some fun Trendy Page Dots to close them up!


These were so fun to make!  

I hope you have a great day!

Trendy Bakers Twine -- You're Incredible!

Hello everyone!  I'm posting over at Twine it Up! with Trendy Twine.  Today I have a card using the Celebration Trendy Twine and some sequins from the Peppermint Icicle and Bumblebee Sequin Mixes.


I had so much fun designing this card.  Since this twine has a Disney vibe, I looked through my Disney images in my Cricut Design Space. These characters have a lot of layers to cut out, but I flattened her and printed and cut her out. Next, I decided I wanted the sentiment to say You're Incredible, so I found a font and had my machine write it on the front with a red glitter pen.


To add in the yellow color from the twine, I cut out a yellow starburst which is also from the same cartridge that Mrs. Incredible is from too.  Then I added my Celebration Trendy Twine above the sentiment and pop dotted up my die cuts.


The last touch was to add my sequins.  I pulled out my Bumblebee Sequins for the yellow and black and my Peppermint Icicle Sequins to add some red.

I think this turned out so fun!

Have an incredible day!

I made a shaker card to share with you today. I found a diamond cut in my Cricut library and welded the base of the die cut onto my card base.  Additionally, I used a fun font and my Pink Glitter Gel Pen to write the happy birthday directly on front as well.


When the base was finished cutting, I did cut out the top layer of the die cut diamond.  It fit onto the the cutout very well on top of the acetate. I used my foam tape around the diamond on the back of the base and I filled it with my Pink Diamonds.  


After attaching my top base I added more Pink Diamonds on the front. I made a pattern on the sides and added some to the top corners.  Lastly, I added some Strawberry Cupcake Trendy Twine to the bottom and tied a bow.

Trendy Bakers Twine -- Happy Treats

Hello everyone!  I'm posting over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine.  This month we are featuring Celebration Trendy Twine and the Clear Pillow Boxes.  I used the Medium Clear Pillow Boxes for today's post. Additionally, I used White Tag-ItsChoose Happy Stamp set, and Bumblebee and Peppermint Stick Sequins.


I had a cute sticker set from Recollections sitting on my table.  I thought they would be perfect for the colors in the twine.  Bonus--they are scratch and sniff stickers!  That was a surprise when I opened them. 


Next I stamped my sentiments on my White Tag Its from the Choose Happy Stamp Set.  Then I added some yellow and black sequins from the Bumblebee Sequins Mix and red sequins from the Peppermint Stick Sequins Mix.


After filling the Medium Clear Boxes with candy, I wrapped my Celebration Trendy Twine around the box long ways a few times and tied a knot.  Then I tied on my Celebration pom poms that I made for this.


I just love these clear boxes -- they are so fun to fill and add some decorations to! 

Have a great day!

Trendy Bakers Twine -- Thinking of You

Hello everyone!  I'm posting over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine today and I have a quick and simple card to share with you today.  I used Cotton Candy Trendy Twine along with some Raspberry Cupcake and Blue Berry Sequins.


I made this card on my Cricut.  It was a pre-designed card but it had a different sentiment to write out.  I changed it to the Thinking of You and picked a cute font.  It cut out all the pieces and wrote it in a black pen. 


I decided to add another layer under the pattern paper I picked out. My Cotton Candy Trendy Twine is wrapped around a few times and then tied in a bow.  Then I put it on with foam tape to pop it up a bit. I added the Raspberry Cupcake and Blue Berry sequins and then decided to outline the words with some fun Wink of Stella pens.  I love to add sparkle :)

Have a fabulous day!!

Trendy Bakers Twine -- Sending Smiles

Hello everyone! I'm posting over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine and today I have some cute little treats to show you today.  We are featuring Cotton Candy Trendy Twine and the 2x2 Candy Cubes. I love these little cubes and use them a lot.


I filled my 2x2 Candy Cube with some pink and blue Hershey Kisses to go along with my Trendy Twine.  Then I took a small strip of pink and white polka dot paper around the outside.  Next I wrapped my Cotton Candy Trendy Twine around the other side of the box.


I took a Pink Tag-It and a White Tag-It and cut them down a bit to fit on the box without hanging over and then just rounded the corners that I cut. The stamp is from the You've Got Mail Stamp Set and I added some pink sequins from the Raspberry Cupcake Sequin Mix and some blue from the Blue Berry Sequin Mix.  I also used a Sky Blue and White Polka Dot Trendy Page Dot on the Tag-Its.

Have a wonderful day filled with smiles!

Trendy Bakers Twine -- A Little Cup of Spring

Happy Easter! 

The Trendy Gals made some cute Mini Cup Easter Treats to show you today and I'm here with mine.


I used Strawberry Cupcake Trendy Twine and some Raspberry Cupcake Sequins on my Mini Cup.  The Twine is wrapped around the cup and then I put my stamped and die cut image over top of that.


I used these cute Peep stamps from Simon Says Stamps.  Then I punched out a circle for the top and stamped the Happy Easter from a My Creative Time set onto it.  It needed a few Raspberry Cupcake sequins and some more Strawberry Cupcake Trendy Twine around the lid with a small bow.


Be sure to head over to Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine to see the what the other Design Team Gals made--they are so cute!

Have a wonderful Easter!

Trendy Bakers Twine -- Easter Treats

Hello everyone!  I'm posting over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine.  Today I have a super quick treat to show you.  I used the new Treat Packets in Spring Green and Pink. I don't think the pink are in the store yet, but I made them both so I decided to show them both.  I also used Twisted Lime and Strawberry Cupcake Trendy Twine.


I really did keep these simple.  I didn't have a tiny Easter stamp to use on a small tag, so I pulled up a tag on my Cricut and had it write Happy Easter in a cute font and with my new Glitter Gel Pens. 


I filled my treat bags with some pink jelly beans and taped it inside the treat cover.  Then I just wrapped my Twisted Lime Trendy Twine around the Pink Treat Packet and added my tag with the pink writing.  And the Strawberry Cupcake Trendy Twine went on Spring Green Treat Packet with the pink writing tag. 


I think these would be very cute embossed but I didn't try that today.  These Treat Packets would be great to keep on hand for small treats and gifts.  Be sure to check them out in the store!

Have a great day!

Trendy Bakers Twine -- Flower Birthday

Hello all!  I'm posting over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine.  Today I have a quick card I made using  Twisted Lime Trendy Twine and the Twisted Lime Sequins.


This is a pretty simple card.  It was a pre-designed card on Cricut Design Space but with a shamrock.  I went with a flower instead since we are past St. Patrick's Day.  Besides the flower, I changed up the location of the squares so I could put my Twisted Lime Trendy Twine at the bottom and to add a stamped sentiment.


There are two flowers one on top of the other.  The top flower is curled a bit and I inked the edges. And there are pop dots in between to give a it of dimension.  I finished it off by adding some Twisted Lime Sequins.

Have a wonderful day!

Trendy Bakers Twine -- Lucky Treat

Hello everyone! I'm posting over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine today.  This month we are featuring Twisted Lime Trendy Twine and the new Kraft Window Tubes.

I made a lucky 'pot of gold' treat. First, I stamped on the Kraft Window Tube while it was flat.  I used a St. Patrick's Day stamp set from Unity Stamp Company and colored in the shamrocks with a green marker.  Then I wrapped my Twisted Lime Trendy Twine around the bottom of the tube a few times and tied a small bow.  Then I pulled out my Twisted Lime Sequins and added them around the tube a bit. I love that there are matching sequins for some of the twine twists!


After all the decorating, I added my Hershey's Nuggets and mini Resees' Cups and filled my 'pot of gold' Kraft Window Tube.  This tube holds a lot of candy and will make a great treat for my student assistant next week.


There's lots of fun products over at Annie's Paper Boutique.  And the March Treat Packing Bundle is such a great deal! Don't miss out :)

Trendy Bakers Twine -- Hello Happy Mail

Hello everyone! I'm posting over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine and I made a fun purse card to show you today.  I used Strawberry Cupcake Trendy Twine the Smile Stamp Set, You've Got Mail Stamp Set, and a few Raspberry Cupcake Sequins.


The card was a ready to make card in my Cricut Design Space.  Sometimes I like to look through there for some fun projects and this one was so cute!  It was supposed to use a Hello Kitty cut that I didn't own, but I just substituted one that I did own.


This is a purse shape and called for a snap to close it and a chain for the handle.  I couldn't find a snap to work so I used a few Raspberry Cupcake Sequins to add to the top for a button look.  And I wanted to use my Strawberry Cupcake Trendy Twine for the handle.  


The instructions said to pop dot the Hello Kitty on the front.  That was a little boring so I glued my twine around the outside of the purse and then added a small banner die cut with the Hello from the Smile set. The design included and envelope which I did cut out and stamped the Happy Mail from the You've Got Mail Stamp set.

This was fun to make and I hope you have a great day!
