Trendy Twine November Challenge ~ Fall Foliage

Good Morning!

**This project earned Top 3 Winner at Craftin' Desert Divas on 11/9/14 and Top Honors at Decorate To Celebrate on 11/12/14**

{This is my 2nd post of the day, for The Kraft Journal Critter Challenge post click here.  It's a cutie}

Welcome to the November Challenge with Trendy Twine!  Our theme this month is Fall Foliage  - Autumn or Thanksgiving theme, foliage, & Trendy Twine. We would like to see your Fall creations using 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!

I am also VERY EXCITED today because Lesley has asked me to stay on with Trendy Twine! Yay! She has such amazing twine and products and I am happy to be able to continue working with them. She also asked my other Trendy Twine Little Sisters to join, so it's a GREAT day!  We are happy to join such an amazing talented team.

Now onto my project I made based on the theme!
 I started by cutting a French Fry box using Brown Kraft Card Stock.  I trimmed the box using Thanksgiving Orange Truffle Trendy Twine.  I cut a pilgrim hat using a Silhouette File and I gave it a trimming with the featured twine before adding it to the center of the packaging.
I added my sweets inside a treat bag and gathered at the top using more yummy Thanksgiving Orange Truffle Trendy Twine to tie it off embellishing with some brown jingle bells and a stamped Manila Tag.  The greeting and die-cut leaf come from My Creative Time A Thankful Heart Stamp Set.

Thanksgiving Orange Truffle Trendy Twine - Orange & Brown
I would LOVE to see you play along with us! Don't forget to check out the Trendy Twine Blog! There is always amazing inspiration by those talented gals! 

Deadline is: 11:59 pm, Monday, November 24th.
