Celebrate with Trendy Twine!

Good day to all my bloggie friends, today it's my turn to post 
over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine. 

I will be spotlighting the festive Stars & Stripes Trendy Twine
and the fun Large Kraft Pillow Box.
So for this month's project I decided to go with a 4th of July theme!
I used a edge border punch on my blue cardstock.
I then adhered the borders to each side of a Red Chevron Favor Bag, which I then wrapped 
it around my Large Kraft Pillow Box.
(I cut my Red Chevron Favor Bag in half and saved the other half for another project)
I placed a strip of the Stars & Stripes Trendy Twine on each side of my border.
I used the Stars & Stripes Trendy Twine to make small pom poms on each side of my banner.
For the shaker star, I used the "When I was a kid" cartridge (star) and micro beads.
I stamped the sentiment "Celebrate" from Teeny Tag Greetings by MCT on the banner. 
Super cute, right?


Here is a closer look at my banner.
I made little pom poms with the festive Stars & Stripes Trendy Twine and used a banner die.
I used glitter glue on the white top portion of my banner for a touch of sparkle.
The little stars are from the cartridge "When I was a kid".

For my tag, I used the TBBM cartridge, Trendy Page Dots
and the Stars & Stripes Trendy Twine on the center of the star and bow as well.
