Using Trendy Twine to make flower Petals

Hi everyone! I hope all of you had a wonderful Holiday.

This layout I wanted to keep really simple so my beautiful niece was the star

of the layout. The black die cut paper had a existing flower in the right lower corner but it was white and the layout needed a pop of color. So I pulled out my stash of Trendy Twine and stitched over the existing flower and stems then used glitter glue for the leaves. I used Peppermint Stick and twisted lime and it gave the layout the little something more that it needed.Here is the link to this awesome twine http://anniespaperboutique.bigcartel.com/ it is a twist of three colors and is really sturdy as well as beautiful! I would love to give you a link to the Maya road but I purchased it from Paper Patch Crafts awhile ago and she doesn't have any left that I can find. I do suggest that you use a paper piercing tool if you use card stock because it was rough getting the needle through without it. I am going to be looking for a new paper piercing tool because I am not happy with the provocraft one that I have on hand. So if you have suggestions on a good one please leave a comment here telling me the brand that you use.

I will be adding more layouts and a couple of cards later in the week :)

Have a fantastic day!! Shelley

Money boxes made with the Sweet tooth boxes cartridge





















Hi everyone! These cute little boxes were made with the Sweet Tooth Boxes Cricut Cartridge.

I love the cartridge but I did have to play with sizing the lid. The cartridge makes the lid to just sit on the box and I wanted it to fit snug. After a few attempts I measured the box opening and sized the lid to my measurements. The cute feather flowers on top are Websters Pages and can be purchased at Paper Patch Crafts and the Gem strips and Trim are also websters and can be purchased in Anne's store. Here is the link to the store http://stores.ebay.com/Paper-Patch-Crafts/Websters-Pages-/_i.html?_fsub=2628076013&_sid=711701473&_trksid=p4634.c0.m322

The twine is from Trendy Twine and I love it! It is not just 1 tone it has a dark then light and white shades in it. It is perfect for pops of color or cute little bows. It is sturdy 4 ply twine. Here is a link to her facebook store. https://www.facebook.com/#!/trendy.twine?sk=app_150178545006427

One other tip that I have is that I used a glue gun to adhere the trims and bows to the boxes because my standard adhesives that I use in my paper Crafts just did not hold them in place. I know the kids will be more excited by the money inside but I loved making these for them!

Have a great crafty day and Happy Holidays!!
