Trendy Twine Design Day

Hello everyone!  I'm over on the Trendy Twine blog today with a festive project to share featuring Stars & Stripes Trendy Twine and the Small Kraft Pillow Boxes.  This twine is such a great combination of red, white and blue making it perfect for those patriotic projects.  For my projects, I created a shaker card and embellished a couple of the pillow boxes so I can tuck in some treats.
The kraft boxes were wrapped with some papers from my stash which coordinated perfectly with the twine.  I created a paper rosette for one of the boxes and I went to my stash of dies to cut out some sparkly stars for my projects.  The finishing touch was the twine, I wrapped it around one of the boxes and added a small bow to the center of a star shaped button on the other box.  My shaker card was created using a polaroid style frame cut from the Stand and Salute cartridge, I added some sequin stars to the frame and finished in off with a sentiment from the Scrappy Moms Yankee Doodle Dandy stamp set.
This was such an easy way to create a festive gift for 4th of July.  Head on over to Annie's Paper Boutique to pick up these goodies for those patriotic projects.  Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a great day!
