Trendy Baker's Twine - You are Spooktacular



Hello and welcome, everyone!

Guest Designer, Lisa from The Relativity of Paper. I'm super excited to be sharing another fun sweet treat project showcasing the October's featured products, Gray Licorice Trendy Twine and Skinny Candy Chutes.  


This treat holder makes a sweet gift for teachers, kids or someone in the office. Skip the envelope with this one and place it on a desk or counter. The recipient will have a nice Halloween surprise waiting for them. 


This is such an easy project. I have a pictorial below. 

You will need a 7.75"(H) x 8.25"(W) heavy cardstock for this project. I recommend at least #80 lb, that's what I used. 
Lay the paper horizontally on scoreboard and score at the .75", 1.5" and 2.25" marks. Set aside. 
Die-cut the top of the pattern papers, align and adhere together. Trim so the pattern papers are 8.125" (W). 
Using a temporary adhesive or post- it tape center the pattern papers on the cover stock ABOVE the .75" score line. 
Flip the paper over on a paper trimmer and cut at 1.5", 2.25", 6" and 6.75" marks cutting from the .75" to the 2.25" scored lines creating straps. (See picture below) Make sure not to cut past those scored lines. 
Add a stronghold adhesive as shown in the picture above. Flip the paper over and permanently adhere the pattern papers. Be sure to never add adhesive over the cut lines, they need to be able to move freely. Flip back over and fold on the .75" score lined up, adhering it to the back of the next section. 
Score the cover at 4.25" and fold to create the card. 
You should be able to slide a skinny candy chute into the two straps on the front of the card. 

Add candy to the Skinny Candy Chute, slide it into place and secure by wrapping Gray Licorice Trendy Twine around the candy chute and tie. I stamped the You Are Spooktacular sentiment from the Annie's Paper Boutique Happy Halloween Stamp Set on the inside of the card. 
Now the fun part, decorating the front of the card. And that brings us back to this.

Trendy Baker's Twine - Instant Witch...

Hi Trendy Fans!

This is Shelly from My Paper Love stopping in to share a fun Halloween treat. Oh how I love this month for all sorts of reasons one, because this month we are featuring Gray Licorice Trendy Twine and the Skinny Candy Chutes which are the perfect combination for Halloween treats.
I used the Skinny Candy Chutes and filled them with Halloween themed pencils. Four pencils fit perfectly in the chute.
I created a fun tag that I stamped with a sentiment from the Happy Halloween set. I tied the tag with Gray Licorice Trendy Twine. 
Here's a close up of the cute witch hat.

These are just as cute and simple as can be. Would be great for classroom treats as they can be made so easily.

Be sure to stop by the blog to see all the fun projects this month! We are sharing some awesome treats!

The Trendy Twine color of the month is Gray Licorice and it's a festive twist of black and gray.  This twist was originally created with Halloween in mind, but it's perfect enough to use all year long.


Our packaging for this month is the Skinny Candy Chutes. These clear boxes are great for M&Ms, jelly beans, and small gumballs.  They are 8" long so you can even slide a pen or pencil in if you are wanting a non-candy treat.

Trendy Baker's Twine - Have a FANG-tastic Day!


Hello and welcome, everyone!
Guest Designer, Lisa from The Relativity of Paper.

Today I'm back with a fun way to send our crafty friends a few goodies for Halloween. Of course, this would easily translate to any holiday or celebration. 


The Treat Packets make quick work of this project and here's a fun tip: treat packets emboss beautifully! I laid each treat packet flat in an embossing folder and ran it through my BigKick. I die-cut two banners and stamped the sentiment, Have a FANG-tastic Day, from the Happy Halloween Stamp Set using black ink. I cut two bats using my Silhouette, added googly eyes, and just cut white fangs from scrap paper. I added Gray Licorice Trendy Twine to one of the bat's wings. Add a piece of 3D mounting foam to the back of each bat and adhere the die-cut sentiment banner, set aside. 


The treat packets come with small clear baggies that are perfect for adding a small candy bar or candy corn. I removed the packaging and staple from the Grape Licorice Batty Sequins and Orange Licorice Batty Sequins. The sequins come in the same small baggie that comes with the treat packets. I added the small paper spool of Trendy Twine in with the coordinating sequins and sealed it back up. Once you have the sequins, trendy twine and candy packaged place the baggies inside the treat packets to align, punch two holes through the treat packets and baggies, making sure to punch the holes above the seal on the baggies. Tie the treat packets closed with Gray Licorice Trendy Twine and adhere the bats with the attached sentiment.

Trendy Baker's Twine -- Spooky Treats

Hello everyone!  I'm Helen from HTB Creations.  This month, we are featuring Gray Licorice Trendy Twine and the Skinny Candy Chutes.  I made these fun treats and also used some bats from one of the Batty Sequin Mixes.


I used some Halloween M&M's to fill my Skinny Candy Chutes.  Then I cut out the tombstone from My Creative Time Dies and used a stamp that goes with them.  


I just added a small, cute bow of my Gray Licorice Trendy Twine to the top of the tombstone.  It needed something else so I grabbed one of the Batty Sequin Mixes to pull out some bats.  I love those bat sequins 😍


I love creating in October since I get to use my Halloween goodies to make things with.  Keep checking back for more fun projects all month long!

Trendy Baker's Twine - Hand Over the Candy



Hello and welcome, everyone! 

I'm Lisa from The Relativity of Paper. 
I'm so excited to be guest designing for the month of October here at 
Twine It Up! 

This month's featured products are

I'm sharing a sweet treat and card combo. 


To create the sweet treat you will need a Skinny Candy Chute, painter's tape or washi tape, inexpensive paint brush, and orange, yellow and white chalk paint. 

Using tape, tape off 5 sections to be painted. Starting with orange chalk paint, paint the bottom section completely, paint half of the fourth section with orange, too. Blend yellow chalk paint into orange (fourth section) while the paint is still wet. Paint the third section yellow and half of the second section yellow. Finish off with white chalk paint blending white with yellow in the second section and completely paint the first section white. Let dry. Fill with candy corn. 


To create the card I used pattern paper from my stash with coordinating stickers, Gray Licorice Trendy Twine and Annie's Paper Boutique Happy Halloween Stamp Set.


I created the sentiment background paper simply by repeat stamping the sentiment in orange and yellow ink and stamped the "trick or treat" sentiment over it using black ink. All the sentiments are from the Happy Halloween Stamp Set. Set to the side. Mat a 4.25"x5.5" top-fold card with pattern paper, layer the stamped background paper using fun or 3D mounting foam. Using an edge die-cut cut a piece of pattern paper and adhere to the left side of the card. Add stickers using 3D mounting foam, adhere clear sequins and embellish with Gray Licorice Trendy Twine. Stamp Happy Halloween inside the card.

Trendy Bakers Twine ~ Halloween Treat Chutes

Hello all and happy Thursday!  Beth from Beth's Beauties sharing the treat bags I made.  This month we are showcasing Gray Licorice Trendy Twine, which is perfect for Halloween, and Skinny Candy Chutes.  I paired the two of those together in these Halloween treats!
I filled the Skinny Candy Chutes with candy corn and embellished with Gray Licorice Trendy Twine wrapped around the chute and attached a Lemon Tag-It.  The Lemon Tag-It comes with one hole punched in it, but I added another one to the opposite side of the tag so I could have both sides secured with the Trendy Twine.  I added Lime Orangesicle Trendy Page Dots around the holes on the tag-it.  The sentiments were stamped from the APB Happy Halloween stamp set and the finishing touch was adding bat sequins from Lime Licorice Batty Sequins.

Planner Friday - September

Amanda here from She's Eclectic for Planner Friday. Hands up, who is excited for October and Halloween!  I am!  This month I am setting up a couple of journalling pages in my travellers notebook to record all the spooky fun we are going to have over the next few weeks.



Used but not pictured: Clear stamp block

October is one of my favourite months, the schools break up for a week, there's a ton of horror films on the TV and well, there's a lot of fun candy and treats to eat!  I started off by adding some washi tape to my pages and then glued in a mini calendar and mini index card so I can document anything I want to remember.  I also wanted to create some space on the other page for memories and a photo of us all dressed up for Halloween so I used some stamps from the Documenting The Everyday set.



Sweetie stamp from the Foodies set

Then it was time to break out my Happy HalloweenFoodies and Hello Fall stamp sets to add some decoration!



Space for stories and a photo



Eat drink and be scary - my perfect October!



Ready to record my month

The last step was to colour in all the images I had stamped, I used fineliners to make them look super vibrant and now I am ready to start recording the month on Monday.

If you love October and Halloween then the Happy Halloween stamp set is currently on sale, head over to the store now and take a peek at all the goodies!
