#1 Cowboy Birthday Card and Gift Bag!

Hi Twiners! <--Always wanted to say that! lol

I'm KimberlyRae from Kreations by KimberlyRae here to Happily share my Trendy Twine projects as their guest designer!   Thank you so much, Trendy Twine for asking me here,  I'm honored to create with your Amazing Twine!

OK- be Prepared there's nothing short about this post, today!  I have Two projects to share with you!  So, grab your favorite cup of slurp and read on.......

My first project is this card for my Grandson, for his FIRST Birthday!  Doesn't the character look just like  him?   Can we say C-U-T-I-E!


'Happy Trails' SVG Kit came in real handy dandy to create my Card Base, Cowboy and Matching envelope!  It came with every svg file I needed to complete my Cowboy Card for my Grandson's first birthday!


Inside the card I used  Trendy Twine's  Lemon Tart twine and Cranberry twine!  I will do some more personalizing, later so it's not all muddled up with our drawings and greetings..ha.


See how Trendy Twine lasso's the #1 ?  Pretty clever, eh?!  LOL   The Chocolate Truffle  twine was Perfect to rope the number right up!


To Draw the 'GRANDSON' sentiment,  I used Cri-Kits Pens  and made an offset to cut around the word and adhered with a Zot dot!  The number one embossed cardstock sticker is from the kit 'Country Livin' by  We R Memories as all the paper, too.

And.....what's a card without a GIFT BAG  to put it in, right!   Just had to, I couldn't help myself!


I made the Gift Bag from 'B is for Birthday' SVG Kit.  The bag is a nice size and just the right size for 4 personalized sippy cups to fit inside :)

Also,  the kit comes with a bee but I chose to draw some stars to match the card with my  Cri-Kits Pens.


I grabbed some Aqua Midnight  Trendy Twine and bowed it up  in a mini clothes pin to create a little star cluster.


I used the same  Aqua Midnight  Trendy Twine to crochet my bag handles :)  Ohhhhhhhhh...this was so FUN and so EASY!   If you don't crochet no worries- you can make  it using your fingers and looping the twine and pulling it through each loop and tie a knot.  Easy peasy!

TIP:  For my Sample Size Twine's I wrap around a doll pin!   Works GREAT!


NOTE-Not Just Vanilla!  Notice how This twine does Not just have color with White!  Some are mixed with Color and Color like the BubbleGum [second down on left side]  is blue, pink and white that's Three Different flavors!

Below are some more of my Trendy Twine on the Spools!  Just love them...Now I have to make a Spool Organizer for them! ;)


Now scoot on over to  Trendy Twine HERE and start Drooling!  You Will Want Every Flavor! [slurp]!
