I thought I would showcase not one but two twines in my project. Since this is a Valentine’s Day project, I wanted to use Trendy Twine’s special Valentine Cherry Cupcake. Just thinking about that one makes me hungry! I used three strands and braided them together for the hanger. It’s pretty sturdy on its own but I wanted to give it more bulk. The second color I used was Posy. This is one of my favorites because of the soft cream with the pink.
As you can see, I used the Posy around the heart and pink frame. I think it matches perfectly.
Yum, chocolate goes in the side there. I think if I tried really hard I could get two in there. Where’d it all go?
The little plastic red hearts were purchased at Hobby Lobby. I then used 20 gauge jewelery wire glued to the back to make a kind of spray. You can’t see it very well but I also used the My Thoughts Exactly Lovey Puns – Food on the tickets. They say “best friends” and “love you.”
Yeah, I ate the Hershey bar already. Sue me, I needed chocolate. I might put another in and give it to my mom, maybe. ^__^ Hope you liked today’s project and a big thank you to Lesley over at Trendy Twine for letting me bore her followers with a guest designer post. Liked it, hated it – let me know in the comments.
OK, now that I given you visual overload, on to my second favorite thing – giveaways. What goes better with crafting than chocolate? Yes, that’s right, another caffeine product – Coffee! I have a $25 Starbucks gift card to give to one winner. That should keep you up into the long hours of the night crafting your little heart out!
