Trendy Twine 12 Days of Christmas...{Day 3}

Good Morning everyone,  and welcome to 
Day 3 of our Trendy Twine 12 Days of Christmas.
It is my day to post on the Trendy Twine Blog and I have another gift giving idea to share!

I hope you have had the chance to hop our
Christmas Tin Blog Hop. If you haven't checked it out...make sure you all starts HERE! The projects are AWESOME and there is a GREAT prize for 2 lucky hoppers! 

For my project today I found some Candy Cane chapstick while shopping at Walmart and thought...hummm this would make a GREAT stocking stuffer :) But you can't just give a chapstick...especially us crafters..we have to package it pretty and of course add a tag~ so I ended up designing a chapstick holder to fit inside the Shorty Candy Chutes that are available in the Trendy Twine store.
Since I get to showcase the Peppermint Icicle Trendy Twine this month, I used the colors from the twine~ light blue, red and white as the color theme. I used blue cardstock for the holder and dropped my chapstick into the Shorty Candy Chute. I added a stamped sentiment to the front using a stamp and die set from My Creative Time~ Postcard Add-Ons and Build a Banner Kit. Next I wrapped my Peppermint Icicle Trendy Twine around the box~ and if you look closely you can see I placed it under the bottom closure. This helps the twine stay in place and not slip off. I actually did it with the top of the box too but took the picture before changing it up.
Then using the Stitched Decorative Banners Die from My Creative Time, I die cut my tag, stamped the sentiment from the All Around Christmas stamp set, added an eyelet and tied a pretty simple bow holding the tag in place on my Shorty Candy Chute.
Didn't this turn out adorable??? I love finding new ways to package items and these candy chutes can be used for so much!

So here are the items I used from the Trendy Twine Store...
