Hello everyone and welcome to Nonna's Craft Corner!
Today is my last post as this month's Guest Designer over at Twine it up with Trendy Twine. I've really enjoyed my time working with Lesley Ann and her awesome Designers.
Since the 4th of July is just around the corner, I decided to create a patriotic project for today's post. I came across a pretty, dark blue candle recently at one of my favorite stores (ok, it was Hobby Lobby). The candle was very pretty, but it was just crying out for a bit of bling. So, out came the glitter and some gorgeous twine and this is what I came up with ......
After blinging up my candle, I decided to bling up a gift bag, just in case I decide to give this as a gift (probably gonna keep it for myself).
So, here's how this came together:
* I used some beautiful Cranberry and In The Navy Twine to wrap around the neck of my candle and to make that big, beautiful bow.
* Next, I used my Silhouette to cut out a few stars in red and white cardstock. I glittered up the stars and glued them to the ends of the twine.
I love the way my candle turned out....
Again....just in case I actually decide to give this as a gift, I have the perfect matching gift bag all ready to go. This was super simple to put together.....
* I punched a few holes around the top of a plain white gift bag and threaded my twine through the holes. I tied a bow off to one side of the gift bag.
* I added a few of my glittered stars to the bag and a fun sentiment using the "Teeny Tag Greetings" Stamp Set by My Creative Time.
Okay - that's it for me today! Thanks so much for stopping by. I always look forward to your visits and your sweet comments. Have a wonderful weekend and I'll be seeing you soon!
Until next time,
