Timeless Twine New Color Release Blog Hop!!

  
Welcome welcome!  I'm so excited to be here today starting off the Timeless Twine Blog Hop to celebrate the new COLOR release!  You should have arrived here from the Timeless Twine blog, if not please start back there to start and for the full list of participants!!  Make sure you do because there is a prize up for grabs!  More on that later.
 

I have a few photos of my projects, so let's get this party started.  My first project uses the new twine called Cape Cod.  It's a combination of soft yellow, grey, and white.  You can find out all about Timeless Twine HERE.  I have wanted to make one of these tassels out of twine since I can remember.  Years ago, I made a graduation card using a tassel I'd made out of embroidery floss.  It's so much better with twine!  LOL  Doesn't it embellish the bag so much better than traditional bows or curling ribbon?

TO MAKE the tassel, I took a piece of cardstock approx 2" wide and just started wrapping the twine around and around until I thought the tassel would be "full" enough.  Next tie off one end of your gathered twine with another length of twine.  Cut the other end as evenly through as you can.  Fold over twine and wrap another length of twine around the top and tie off.   I attached my tassel to my bag with more twine!!

 Next up is a matching card.  I am in LOVE with this paper!  It's from the Bramble Rose collection by My Minds Eye.  It was layered over a die cut made with the Stitched Mats: Rectangles from Lil' Inker Designs.  Cape Cod twine was wrapped around the panel and a sentiment and arrow finish this off!

Here's my card and bag ensemble together!

 My next project is another card but using the other NEW twine called Graphite Gray.  It's a combination of gray and white.  Here I've used the twine to make my own embellished FLAIR!  I'm not sure if any of you were obsessed with collecting those JCPenny buttons over the holidays but I was!  I even had my hubby going there!  So I have this sack of buttons on my craft desk......and thought, why not?! 

cool


 TO CREATE my twine Flair, I covered the entire smooth surface with Scor-Tape and tucking it over the rounded edges.  I then started to create my design.  Scor-Tape worked perfectly for this!  No sticky glues or mess!

 This card uses paper from the Breeze collection by My Mind's Eye that was misted with Classic Tan Mister Huey's mist.  I love the look the mist gives!!!  My flair was attached using foam adhesive. 




Here are the new colors of twine now for you to drool over!!!
