Trendy Twine - A Christmas Gift!

Good day to all my bloggy friends!
Today is my day to post over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine blog and I am showcasing the Candy Cane Trendy Twine, Candy Tin along with the Candy Cane Sequins Mix.

Here is what I created... A Christmas Gift for a friend!
I used the pretty "Evergreen Stack" from DCWV to decorate the Candy Tin and on the Tags/Ornaments.

I found the "Merry Christmas" caption on the Cricut Explore DS. 
I used 3-d pop dots on the "Christmas" for dimension.
On the white card stock I used crystal snow glitter and adhesive for a snowy texture.
For the trees, I used the scraps that were left from the Christmas Shaker tags/ornaments.
I made a double bow with red ribbon and the Candy Cane Trendy Twine.
I added a pearl and sprinkled a few of the Candy Cane Sequins Mix around the Candy Tin.
I wrapped the Candy Cane Trendy Twine around the Candy Tin
Very Festive!!
The inside of the Candy Tin will contain the pretty Tags/Ornaments! 
I used the Christmas Tree Shaker card file from The Cutting Cafe' to make my tags/ornaments. 
I omitted the card file and adjusted the size to fit the candy tin.
I used the pretty Candy Cane Sequins Mix to fill the tags/ornaments. 
On the DS, I used the write feature, to write out the caption "Merry Christmas" on each banner. That was so cool!
I used gold cardstock for the pretty stars and to hang the tags/ornaments I used a piece of Candy Cane Trendy Twine.
