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.
If you have a chance to have a macaron today I hope you enjoy it.  Be sure to check out The Twinery store  for these gorgeous colors as well as many other lovely one's to enhance your spring and summer projects.

Memorial Day 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.
Be sure to check out The Twinery store for all your patriotic and summer decorating needs.

Grad Money Holder and Envelope

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.
