Let's Celebrate!

Good Morning everyone! It is my DT day over on the Trendy Twine Blog!

The 4th of July is just a few days away I have another fun project to share using the Large Kraft Pillow Boxes and my all time favorite Trendy Twine~the Stars and Stripes!
Did you know that you can emboss these Kraft Pillow Boxes??? I did this one with the stars embossing folder from Cuttlebug and it gave the pillow box such an awesome texture. 
I did keep my project on the CAS side to really showcase the embossing on the box as well as show that wrapping some of the gorgeous Stars and Stripes Trendy Twine around the box and attaching a sweet tag is just the finishing touches a 3D project needs.
Here is a close-up of the twine holding on the star tag. For my tag I used one of the star dies from MCT~Bunch of Stitched Stars . The sentiment is from the newly released Wishing You Both The Best and was stamped onto the banner die from the Vintage Stitched Label Dies. You can also see more the embossing and how awesome it looks. Some random sequins in the red, white and blue and this project is ready for the 4th of July celebrations (filled with some candy of course)

Here is what I used from Annie's Paper Boutique:
