Guest Designer - Tanya Adams

Hello everyone!  This is Tanya from Nonna's Craft Corner with my last post as this month's Guest Designer.  Before I share my project with you, I would like to thank Lesley Ann and her fabulous Design Team for allowing me to play along with them this month!  I've had a wonderful time - you ladies are awesome ♥

Okay - let me show what I have for you today.  With the 4th of July just around the corner, I wanted to do something with a bit of a patriotic feel to it.  I came across a lovely, dark blue candle at one of my favorite stores. It's a beautiful candle, but it was just crying out for a bit of bling........

After blinging up my candle, I thought I might give this as a gift, so I blinged up a plain white gift bag to match!  So, let me tell you how I put this together:

*I used two colors of twine to wrap around the neck of my candle and make that big, beautiful bow - Cranberry Twine and In The Navy Twine.  Aren't they gorgeous together?
* Using my Silhouette, I cut out a few stars in red and white cardstock.  I covered them in glitter and glued them to the bottom of the twine on my candle.

I love the way my candle turned out...

The gift bag was super easy to complete....

*I punched a few holes around the top of a plain white gift bag and threaded my twine through the holes.  I tied a big pretty bow off to one side of the bag.
*Next, I glued on a few of my glitter stars and a fun sentiment and it's all finished!

I hope you've enjoyed my project today!  Thanks again to all the wonderful Trendy Twine Ladies!  I've enjoyed being your Guest Designer this month!
