Happy Easter - Trendy Twine Style :)

Happy Easter Everyone!

I sure hope you are off to an amazing day, I know we sure have a FABULOUS day planned starting with the best service of the year at church and a pancake breakfast made and served by our beautiful youth group :)

So here in bloggy world my day started pretty great too, take a look at these....
 Carrot toppers with Tickled with Teal Trendy Twine & Orangesicle Trendy Twine. Okay so I bought these cupcakes at a local cupcake shop Babycakes. Isn't that frosting perfect :) The ones I make for Easter will be handmade and I can assure you will not look like this :) 
I saw this idea on pinterest so it's mot mine but I just fell in love and had to try it using twine instead of paper :) I used two 12" x 1/2" strips of paper and glued them together so that the polka dots would show on both sides. Obvious you can omit that step if you have double sided paper and like the pattern on the opposite side. Next, grab a lollipop stick and  place some adhesive at one end (Bottom), and wrap the polka dot paper tightly around the lollipop stick. You can let go of it as it will stay put until you adhere it to the top.  Next I adhered strips of twine to the other side of the stick(top) going around the stick and even overlapping until I felt I had enough - I think I used 20 strips. Next, grab the polka dot paper and gently wrap it around the top of the stick either over the twine or just barely under like I did. The paper with naturally curl around and you may need to pull it just a bit to get the carrot look. 

Lastly, I added the Orangesicle Trendy Twine attached a Lil inker design tag and a MCT sentiment and there you have an adorable Carrot topper :)

Don't forget I still have a giveaway HERE for some Trendy Twine and would LOVE for you to check it out!
