Trendy Twine - Guest Designer

Hey Everyone!! Happy Tuesday! I am very excited to be a guest designer for Trendy Twine today! I used the awesome Cherry Cupcake twine in my project :) 

So for my project I decided to create a little treat box for my hubby for Valentines day :) I cut the box and the background from Spring Holiday Cards. The heart is cut from Sweethearts and the stamp is from Jaded Blossom "Valentine Treats" stamp set. 


So as you can tell from the picture... twine curls, yay! Its soooo much cuter in person! To curl the twine I wrapped it tightly around wooden dowels and used clothes pins to secure it tight. I then put it in the oven for 25 minutes on 275. After the 25 minutes is up I took it out and let it cool and set for an additional 10 minutes. Then I gently slid the twine off the dowel. That easy! :) 

Do you want to win a twine sampler pack? 


All you have to do is comment on my blog, Trendy Twine's blog and make sure you are a follower of both blogs in order to win. :)

Love the curly twine! I used to do that with ribbon when making hair clips for my daughter, but I never thought about doing it with twine. So clever! Thanks so much for sharing that! :)
