Trendy Twine Tuesday: Happy Holidays
It's Trendy Twine Tuesday! :-)
This is my project for today. I was scratching my head, trying to think of a new way (at least to me... ;-)) to showcase twine on my card...
...when I thought about twine "photo corners"... :-) Here I used Holly Berry for my corners.
I also couldn't resist adding a little bow to my wreath, and I decided to go with a more unexpected color: Sky
Everything is of course on pop dots, even though it doesn't show much on the picture... ;-)
The papers are from Recollection (Michael's own brand), it's hard to see in the pic but there is glitter in the paper all over. The stamp is from My Thoughts Exactly, and was heat embossed.
And now just because it is the 1st day of Hanukkah today (it starts tonight after dark), I thought I would share with you my little dreidel decoration.
Now I know it's a bit hard to figure out on this little picture but pretty much what it is is little dreidels attached with Trendy Twine to the chandelier to form a sort of mobile... Dreidels are little spinning tops with hebrew letters painted on them that kids use to play a game at Hanukkah (and win chocolate coins... ;-))
I used all kind of twine colors, attached it with hot glue, and added a little bow at the top of each dreidel for good measure... ;-D
Let me finish by wishing you all a very Happy Holiday Season. I hope you get to spend some time with your family and make new happy memories. <3
