 Trendy Twine Blog
but if you are just stopping in, make sure to head on back to begin the hop!
There are AWESOME prizes up for grabs but you must comment and become a follower of each blog to be entered to win!

Now for my project! I have to say I LOVE the way this turned out. Even my kiddo's loved it SO they are now going to be made for all their teacher's for the holidays. They each have 8 so I will be making 15 more of these and I sure hope they love them too :)
So here is my chocolate filled tin.....
I used the Candy Tin and wrapped and filled it with 12 chocolate nuggets. Since I was using the beautiful Peppermint Icicle Trendy Twine (a twist of red, white & lt blue - Christmas Bakers Twine) I found designer paper that was a perfect match.  Once they were all wrapped and laid inside the tin, I added the belly band and then added my nice big tag!

For the tag, I used the dies from My Creative Time, Stitched XL Label Die and XL Label Die and the same designer paper that I used to wrap the candies in. I then wrapped the Peppermint Icicle Trendy Twine around the center of the top layer 3 times to make a nice thick wrap. Using some silver jingle bells from my stash, I tied them onto the twine and then tied the twine into a bow.
Finally to finish my project off, I stamped my sentiment using the Boughs of Holly stamp set from MCT onto the white section of the label die.
