Trendy Twine Tuesday: RED Project
As you know, Trendy Twine has just started a Design Team and I am one of the lucky members! :-) This month starts the beginning of our monthly projects. Each month we will focus on a different color and make projects with it. The 1st Tuesday we will all post together, and every Tuesday afterwards a different member of our team will post a project with that color.
For September we chose Peppermint Stick RED as we are all in the mood for back to school and apples come to mind... ;-) In honor of this kick off, Peppermint Stick Trendy Twine will be on sale for $7.50 this whole week. :-)
My husband was in France last week and he brought back some nougats (probably my favorite treat...;-P). He wanted to share some with his coworkers, so I made a cute little packaging for them.
I started with some adorable (and so easy to use) Mini Kraft Gable Boxes from Annie's Paper Boutique. All I had to do was stamp on them and decorate them a little. The beauty of those little boxes is that kraft goes with everything and with all of the twine colors! ;-)
Here I used some organza ribbon and some Peppermint Stick RED twine. I really love the color combo of red with craft and white! :-) I finished it off with a little tag, attached with matching twine, and a little medallion glued over my twine and ribbon using foam tape (this way the medallion is glued to the box and the twine and ribbon can move freely under it).
The square medallion stamp is by Stampin'Up, and this adorable little ladybug with a flower is from Stampendous. :-)
As you can see, I was really good and ate the props only after I was done taking pictures... ;-D
So in order to kick off this month's introduction of twine, we decided to have you participate in a little challenge.
The theme this month is "what's your favorite use of twine". For me aside from cards, I like to use twine on packages and gifts and with tags just like above. I think it always adds a little something happy and fun to gifts.
Once your project is done, head over to the Trendy Twine Blog, where you will find a Mr Linky at the bottom of the post where you can add a link to your project. You have till September 29 to enter.
The DT will pick their favorite project, and this person will receive a big spool (160 yards) of red twine, then we will pick a random winner who will get 30 yards of red twine. I hope to see how you like to use twine on your projects very soon! :-)
And last but not least, don't forget to check Alyssa's and Kim's blogs to see their projects featuring Peppermint Stick Trendy Twine. :-)
