Twine-fully Happy Tag

Hi Everybody!
Jenny from Crazy About Cricut here, and I'm excited to be sharing another design team project with you!  I have a twine-fully happy tag to share today.  Here are the details:

*B is for Boy Cricut cartridge
*Timeless Twine - Cherry Red, Aqua Blue
*Peachy Keen Stamps
*paper from my stash

*I took a strip of Terrifically Tacky Tape (the red double sided tape) and layed that along the edge.
*Then I took small pieces of Aqua Blue twine and made little loops, and attached it to the line of red tape.

*I added a bow and button for the finishing touch :)

I hope you enjoyed my project!  Don't forget to check out the Timeless Twine March Challenge!  Click HERE to enter.  TFL, and have a twine-tastic day :O)

Tags and Twine

One of my favorite things to create is TAGS! I love them because they add a little something extra to any gift. They are so super easy and fun to create. You can create them for any holiday/season. It is a great way to use up your little scraps too.

Here are a couple sets that I have made recently:

Product Used:
  • Paper
  • Stamps- My Pink Stamper and Unity Stamps
  • Markers
  • Felt Flowers
  • Twine- Timeless Twine

*There are so many great colors of Twine, it is hard to pick out which one to use!
Be sure to check them all out here!

Spring H2O bottle tag UPDATED

This is Gaby from GabyCreates wishing you a wonderful Friday!  It is a great Friday for me since I will be enjoying the next week off! [Spring Break].  I decided to create this bottle tags for my co-workers to enjoy during our "let's-bring-treats-before-we-go-on-Spring Break" morning.

I made 12 of these but only took a picture of one  (I might update/add pictures later today from the office if time permits or the boss is not watching [wink].  I must add that I also took chocolate chip cookies!).

OK I must share that this twine color combo [Raspberry Lemonade Bakers Twine] was what drove me to fall in love with twine! I love it!  I used to see creations with it but nobody would post where they had purchased 'till I found it! Isn't yummy?

For the "Spring" and "H2O" I used my Silhouette Cameo and for the bottle tag and butterfly I used dies from PaperTreyInk.

[UPDATE] -added pictures of the water bottle tags and Bunny treat bags

I made four bottles without a butterfly in a green tone color and added embossing for the men in the office.
I additionally created some bunny treat holders for my favorite Famous Amos cookies!


Reminder: We have a challenge going on HERE  It is really easy theme: egg and twine.  Hope you can join us! Until next time! Gaby

Mini Notebooks

Hi everyone! It's Kassidy here. I hope you are all having a great Friday!
For today's project I wanted to show you by adding a little bit of twine can really make your project pop.

I made some mini notebooks for a church activity and thought they needed a little something extra. I pulled out some of my favorite Timeless Twine and tied a little bow around each of the notebooks.

These notebooks were so super easy to make and they would be great for gifts!


See you all next time! Have a fantastic weekend!
Hugs, Kassidy

Twine-tastic Party Hat

Hi Everybody!
Jenny from Crazy About Cricut here, and I'm excited to be sharing another design team project with you!  One of my favorite things to make are party favors.  So here are the details for my latest crafty creation!

*Elmo Party Cricut cartridge = hat and hat layer (blue)
*Jaded Blossom = Miscellaneous Fun set
*patterned paper from my stash
*Stickles in various colors
*white ink
*white gel pen for detailing

*I absolutely love that there are so many different colors of twine to choose from!  I was able to make this colorful pom pom for the top of my party hat really pop with all the different colors :O)

*To make the top pom pom, I took all five colors at once and made a bow with them using my Unity Bow maker.

*Then I just cut the ends of each side of the bow.

*I wanted it a little fuller, so I folded both ends of the bow together, and spread them out a little bit.

*For the pom pom that's in front, I again made a bow, and just cut the ends.

*I did use a little bit of hairspray for this "photo shoot" to keep all the ends where I wanted them :)


*To attach them to the party hat, I used a 3D pop dot (these are thicker and "beef-ier").

Isn't that such a cute sparkly hat?!  Other than the drying time for the Stickles, these don't take long to make at all.  I hope you enjoyed my project!  TFL, and have a twine-tastic day :O)

Simple St Pat's Day Card

Hi Twine-a-holics!

It's Kathy, from Kathy and Kids, to share with you a clean and simple St. Patricks Day card. I don't usually like so much "white space" on my projects, but sometimes I really like the clean look. I didn't ink any edges or add any bling :)

I stamped the 4 leaf clover and sentiment using green ink, and then I outlined the clover with Olive Green Timeless Twine. I used a quick drying paper glue to adhere it so I wouldn't have to worry about trying to hold it in place while it dried. I also used the same twine and wrapped it around the card a few times.

Olive Green Timeless Twine
Stamp set from the dollar bin at the craft store

I hope you enjoyed my clean and simple card!

Thanks for stopping by!

Silhouette Cards

Hello, it's Rosa with another DT post!
Today I made three cards using Black Coffee Timeless Twine.

I haven't added any sentiments to the cards because I'm not sure what I will use them for. But, I just love the one with the child flying the kite :)

Thanks so much for stopping by! See you next time!
