Sweet Ladybug Oreos

ladybug-set
We are sharing sweet treat projects this week and I am tickled to share with you this adorable ladybug Oreo treat holder and card.  I found these cookies on clearance at my favorite store, Home Goods.  Made this cute set for my doctor whom I have an appointment with coming up. I think she will really love it.  Used some yummy The Twinery twine to accent my card and box.

4th of July Table Decoration

whole project 4th_edited-1
Are you getting ready to celebrate the Fourth of July and the beginning of summer fun?  I made this fun jar full of red, white and blue jelly beans and used some lovely twine to decorate the sticks for my pinwheels as well as around my jar.  The Twinery has fabulous colors and I love the mix of red, white and blue in this Firecracker twine.  Be sure to pick up some to use on your fun, patriotic projects.
pinwheels 800
Here is a close of up of my pinwheels.  They are so easy to make and so much fun.  I made three different size squares and then but from each corner into the center, but not all the way to the middle.  I used a glue dot to get the points to adhere and then glued the button with the twine to the center of the pinwheels.  If you want your pinwheels to spin, you  need to use a brad and I would suggest a paper straw which you can poke the brad through and adhere it to the straw.  I would love to see your pinwheels.

Happy 4th of July.

All About Dad

All About Dad:
Dad's are amazing and this fun box from the uber talented Jamie Cripps is perfect to tuck a gift card and a note about what kind of an amazing father my husband is.  I loved pulling out my black and grey The Twinery twine as I don't use them very much.  Love how it accented the tie so perfectly.  Be sure to check out The Twinery for all your Father's Day gift packaging needs.

Happy National Macaron Day

Happy National Macaron Day:
Did you know that there was such a day?  I love the look of Macarons and had a blast making this macaron box to hold my treats.  They are for my best friend's granddaughter who loves these cookies.  I used some fun and girly Doodlebug papers and lots of pretty and soft twines to decorate my box and tie the cellophane bag closed on both ends before putting it into the box.

Memorial Day Card

star-card
We are heading into Memorial Day weekend and although it marks the beginning of summer I always try to take some time to remember the soldiers who have been lost in the pursuit of our continued freedom.  We also should honor the soldiers who fight on our behalf every day.  I made this sweet card for a soldier that is coming home on leave soon.  I used some yummy solid twine and some variegated to give my card that extra special touch.

Grad Money Holder and Envelope

grad-card-envelope-too
Graduation season is upon us.  We have three graduations of direct family members as well as the children of some good friends.  My daughter is graduating from college with a degree in Biology and starting working as an EMT to get clinical patient care hours a few days after she graduates.
With all of these graduations this is a really easy card to make and you can fit a gift card, money or a check in the holder.  The cut file from Lori Whitlock comes with the envelope as well.  I used some yummy Marigold twine to decorate my envelope and make a fun tassel.  I wrapped the tassel around my fingers about four times and then tied off the top and trimmed the bottom.  I used a brad to secure it to the grad cap which was cut with a hole in the middle of it.  Be sure to check out The Twinery for all of your graduation and spring celebration decoration needs.
