Happy Halloween.....Trendy Twine New Releases & A Giveaway!!!

Good Morning everyone and welcome to a fun new release day over at Trendy Twine!
There are 5 new colors being added to the Trendy Twine store~ perfect for all your upcoming Halloween projects! So let me introduce you to......
Aren't they awesome.....
and they are now available in the store HERE!

But before you hop on over to pick yourself the new release, the Trendy Twine DT has some fun Halloween Treat ideas to share using the Trick or Treat and Spooktacular Taffy. Make sure to check out their projects over on the Trendy Twine Blog

Now onto my projects....I ended up making 3 different projects.
1~ because I LOVE these new colors
2~ because Halloween is one of my favorite holidays
3~ Well I couldn't decide which project I liked best so I just posted them all :)
For my first project I used one of the fun Candy Tin's from the store and wrapped my candies that I used inside with some designer paper from DCVW~The Spookytime Stack. Next I made a wrapper for the outside of the candy tin but instead of wrapping twine around it, I thought I would try something new and "tie" the twine using some eyelets and the new Spooktacular Taffy. Before I tied the wrapper together I heat embossed my sentiment~ from Bugbites Magic Spells Stamp set. And that cutie spider...well he is from some old rub ons I had from EAD Designs~which is no longer in business :(
For my next project, which is a very simple one...I used a Small Clear Pillow Box and filled it with some black, purple and orange m&m's. Then using MCT~ Scallop & Stitched Circle Die and the All Around Halloween stamp set, I made a cute tag to add to my pillow box. Tied on with the new Trick or Treat Trendy Twine and you have an adorable treat to hand out!!

For my final project~ and probably my most favorite project, I made a fun treat using the Broom Cover Candy Stick file from SVG Cutting Files, a Clear Skinny Candy Bag from the Trendy Twine store and 2 different stamp sets that I picked up from Micheal's and Joanne's. The Witch I believe was from last year's dollar bin from Micheal's and the matching sentiment is from this year's Studio G from Joanne's. I ended up die cutting the circle and scallop from a file in the Silhouette store, then stamping my witch. I wanted her to match the Spooktacular Taffy Trendy Twine, so I colored her hat using my orange copic marker and then adding some orange stickles. Finally I tied the tag to my candy bag using the Spooktacular Taffy TT. I did the same with the sentiment, added an orange eyelet and then tied the Spooktacular Taffy Trendy Twine around the broom.

So what do you think? Which project is your favorite?????
