Trendy Twine October Challenge ~ Boo-tiful Tags & Treats

Good Morning!

Welcome to the October Challenge with Trendy Twine!  Our theme this month is Boo-tiful Tags & Treats. We would like to see your Halloween Treat creations with a tag and of course Trendy Twine! (No other brands of baker's twine) Please use hemp, jute, or embroidery thread only if you do not currently own Trendy Twine. Better yet you can head over to the store here and pick up some today!

Now onto my project!
I used the Small Candy Rectangle Clear Box (Which comes in packs of 10) and filled with some festive candy corn!  I wrapped the box with Grape Limeade Trendy Twine multiple times. I cut a layered scalloped tag with my electronic cutting machine, and trimmed the inner layer with more yummy Grape Limeade Trendy Twine.  Before adhering to the packaging, I stamped my sentiment to the front.   

I wanted to create a mini-card to go along with my little treat, so I cut a vampire out using the Mini Monster Cartridge. I stamped a sentiment that I thought was quite fitting to go in the lower right corner, and punched out some drippy goo from patterned paper and added to the top. I completed the card by wrapping Grape Limeade Trendy Twine around the top of the card and tied off in a bow.

The challenge will run from October 2nd through October 24th! I would LOVE to see you play along with us! Don't forget to check out the rest of the design team on the Trendy Twine Blog! You will be inspired no doubt!
