100% Sweetness......{Trendy Twine} {Post #2}

Good Morning everyone!!

The Trendy Twine DT is back from a break in January with some new additions to the team and lots of fun things coming this term! For the DT announcement and to meet the new team, make sure to check out the Trendy Twine Blog.

This month is all about Valentine's Day! Love is in the air and the DT is sharing
Valentine Treat Packaging with treats of course. This ties in with the new challenge that is now up on the blog. 
The Challenge......
Will You Be My Valentine?

~Valentine treat packaging (must include the treat)
with Trendy Twine~

**If you do not have Trendy Twine, use hemp, jute, 
embroidery thread, or yarn only; NO ribbon
(no other brands of bakers twine)**
There are lots of colors on sale this month too that would be perfect for your projects...
Valentine Cherry Cupcake Mini or the Pink Licorice Mini
Valentine Cherry Cupcake Mini Set by Trendy TwinePink Licorice Mini Set

Deadline is 11:59 p.m. central time, Monday, February 17th. 
Project must be new for the challenge.
You can link up HERE!

Now for my projects.....
I used a few additional products from the store besides twine for my treats.
I hope you like them!!
Paper Straws are so popular right now and the things you can do with them are endless! I found these huge marshmallows at Walmart that were perfect for using the straws as the sticks! So using the Red & White Dots Straws from Trendy Twine I made some sweet chocolate dipped marshmallows for my Valentine's.

What is a sweet treat without a cute tag, right??? The tag and sentiment are from My Creative Time~Stitched Round Tab, Arrow and Tag Die and the 100% Sweetness Stamp Set.  I used the Cherry Cupcake Trendy Twine and wrapped it around the center of the tag 3 times and tied it in a bow. So cute!!! Then using the same color twine I attached the tag to the treat bag.

And here it the whole treat! So yummy!!! 
(my kids approved too...LOL)

This last project I actually took the Apple Box Set that I got from The Cutting Cafe and resized it in the Silhouette studio to fit my over sized marshmallow. I removed the apple so I could use the heart from the Stitched Sweetheart & XOXO Die as my window. I kept the box decorated simply and added a beautiful 3/4 Chevron May Arts Ribbon to the top. (you can pick these beautiful ribbon's in many colors up in the Trendy Twine store too!!!)

Well that is all I have....
What do you think??? Sweet treats and cute packaging too!
