Trendy Twine ~ Thankful Treat Bags

Hello all and happy Tuesday!  I am sharing these thankful treat bags that my 5 year-old son and I created on the Trendy Twine blog today.
He wanted to make something for his preschool teachers, so I got out my Annie's Paper Boutique and let him choose what he wanted to use!  He started by stamping the Kraft Large Tag-It with a sentiment from the APB Happy Thanksgiving stamp set in blue (his favorite color!) and a pumpkin stamp which we heat embossed with copper embossing powder.  He added the tags to Orange Chevron Treat Bags.

Here are the finished bags! He also used Spiced Pumpkin Trendy Page Dots and Creamy Pumpkin Trendy Twine on the tags.
He added candy in the bags and glued them shut with removable Glue Dots. The tag was adhered with Craft Glue Dots.
Connor was really proud of the treats he gave to his teachers!

Here is what we used from Annie's Paper Boutique:

Christmas Cookies!

Good Monday Morning!  I recently was baking Christmas cookies to freeze for next month, and that spurred me to create this set of projects for you today!  All of the files are from SVG Attic's JGW Mama Kringle's Kitchen.
 The Pretzel card was quick to assemble.  I inked around the cuts with brown chalk ink for extra dimension.
 I also inked around the cuts on the tart (or as I like to see it, pie!) card.  For the topping, I brushed Crackle Accents on it and added glitter.  It really looks like a pie crust that is crackled and glittery with sugar!
 I also made the ribbon box from that set to hold some cookies!  You can find the tutorial for assembling this box HERE.  All patterned papers on these projects are from DCWV's Hand Painted Christmas stack.
Here is the inside of the box.  It fit 9 cookies inside!
 And just because I love to bake, here is a close up of the White Chocolate Peppermint Pudding cookies that went inside the box.  They are more yellow because I used French Vanilla pudding instead of the traditional vanilla pudding mix.  If you are a fan of peppermint, I highly recommend trying out the recipe HERE.  They are yummy and stay soft, just like I like my cookies :)
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Jawsome Birthday Card

Happy Friday!  I am glad we have made it to the end of the week :)  Today I am sharing a card that I created for one of my nephews who LOVES sharks!
The file I used came from Bird's Cards and the set was called Jawsome.  I used papers from DCWV's Beach House stack.  The front was embellished with black Nuvo Crystal Drops and Stormy Trendy Twine.
The inside opens to a pop-out shark!  He absolutely loved it!  The water part on the inside was not included in the file, I just hand cut and glued it on with Scotch Tacky glue.
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Trendy Twine ~ Happy Birthday, Lesley!

Hello everyone!  Today the whole Trendy Twine DT and two past DT are surprising Lesley, the owner of Annie's Paper Boutique/Trendy Twine with a birthday post!  The most fun part is that it is a day early, so hopefully we pulled this off without her suspecting ;)  Head on over to the Trendy Twine blog to see all of the cards for her and to wish her a HAPPY BIRTHDAY!  This is the card I sent to her!
I thought this card resembled a three tier birthday card, so I decided to make it using THIS tutorial.  On the bottom tier I decorated with a Pink Tag-ItAPB Smile stamp setCandy Cane Trendy Page Dot, and Raspberry Cupcake Trendy Twine.  I adhered the tag with foam tape onto a GMD regal doily die cut.
On the second and third tiers, I added sentiments from the APB Choose Happy stamp set.
The finishing touch was adding several Frosty Sequins to the base of the card.
The fun part is that the top two tiers slid down into the bottom tier, so when it is sent in the mail, it looks like a single layer birthday cake :)  Pulling on the candles lets the other layers slide up.  The papers I used on this card are from DCWV's Confetti stack.

Here is what I used from Annie's Paper Boutique:
