Hey there!  Laura here with ya one on one today with my favorite
embellishment....TWINE!!  It's trendy, it's hot, and no wonder,
because it's FUN!!  And guess what....I might just have some to
give away today too!!  Check at the bottom of this post after
you check this out:

This stacking box project is a great favor or decor for a wedding,
shower, anniversary, birthday....any occasion really!  And it gets
dressed up from a basic pink and brown cardstock and a simple
stacking box pattern by using simple techniques with twine.
(FYI--the box is just a square....vary the sizes to fit your needs,
and score at 1" to make the box sides).  And this particularly
yummy twine is from Trendy Twine--"Chocolate Cupcake"...
yep, like I said....yummy! 

Here are the close ups of how I used the twine:

First, threaded thru pretty lace:

For the middle,  I used eyelets (and the holes in the punch) to lace
twine thru and then tie a's the close up of the "before":

On the top layer I simply threaded the twine thru the punch
and tied a simple bow:

Just a few simple examples of how much twine can add to a project...
it is my "go to" something, when I want to add some pizazz to any of
my crafting projects!
