I'm a "Twine it up with Trendy Twine" Guest Designer

Hello everyone and welcome to Nonna's Craft Corner!
I've got some fun news to share with you today - I am the June Guest Designer over at the Twine it up with Trendy Twine Blog!  I love crafting with twine and I am so excited to be a guest designer for Lesley this month!  So....let's get onto my first project for the month!

I needed to put together a special "thank you" for a very special friend.  I came across the cutest little black and white polka dot bucket at Hobby Lobby and thought how cute it would be with a POP of yellow.  Yellow made me think of bees...and bees made me think of flowers....and...well, one thing lead to another....

* I started my project by wrapping some pretty Lemon Tart twine around the bottom of my bucket.  I went up about 3 inches, applying drops of Glossy Accents along the way to hold the twine in place.

* Next, I created a cute little accent piece from the Lemon Tart twine by wrapping the twine across a piece of 3 inch cardstock several times, tying in the center then clipping the ends.  I added a black button to the center and used my hot glue gun to add my twine accent to the top of my bucket.
* The fun little bumble bee is from the "Honey Bees Cutting File" by Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons. I added a cute little bow to her hair using some sweet twine in Tickled Pink.
* My flower is from the Silhouette Online Store and the center is made of Lemon Tart twine.

* I came across some chalkboard plant markers at my craft store and thought it would be fun to wrap the stick portion with a bit of twine also!  I added a sweet sentiment and my friends name, stuck it into a pretty white Germanium plant and there you go... a special thank you for a special friend!

I look forward to sharing another fun Trendy Twine project with you next month!  Be sure to visit the Twine it up with Trendy Twine Blog when you get a chance - you will just love all the beautiful shades of twine they have in stock!
