July 30, 2012 Trendy Twine Berry Red Project

Hi Everyone:
Here is my second Trendy Twine DT project this month using Berry Trendy Twine.  I had such fun making all these lucious berry items with this wonderful twine.  I made the card first and then went from there.  I had fun with the strawberry and am sure that my father-in-law will enjoy the cherry strawberry preserves that are in this jar which I made for his birthday.  Be sure to also check out the blog for some wonderful Trendy Twine inspiration.  Hugs,
