The phrases are the perfect finishing touch, turning these tags into mini holiday greetings. From heartfelt messages to playful wishes, each sentiment adds a personal touch that will warm the hearts of your loved ones.

Imagine the joy on someone's face as they unwrap a gift adorned with a cute beanie hat tag, complete with a snowy sentiment. It's the kind of detail that transforms a simple present into a cherished memory.

Happy Birthday Lesley!

It's that time of the year again – a time for confetti, laughter, and, of course, birthday wishes for the incredible Lesley, the creative genius behind Annie's Paper Boutique and Trendy Twine! Lesley's birthday is a special occasion that deserves to be celebrated, and what better way to do it than with a delightful surprise on the Trendy Twine blog?

To mark this festive occasion, I couldn't resist crafting a special card for Lesley. The process was filled with joy and creativity, just like Lesley's vibrant personality. 

Starting with a canvas of pretty floral paper, I decided to create a present-shaped square to serve as the focal point of the card. No creation is complete without the signature touch of Trendy Twine! For this project, I chose Totally Sky and Posy shades to wrap around the present. The result was a combination of colors that complemented each other beautifully. To elevate the design, I strategically placed foam dots behind the present, adding a touch of dimension and visual interest.

Lesley's birthday card needed an extra touch of magic, and what better way to achieve that than with shooting stars? I took three pieces of Totally Sky Trendy Twine and affixed three stars to the end of each piece. The effect was enchanting, creating a whimsical scene as if the stars were dancing around the birthday present. To enhance the celestial theme, foam dots were added for an extra pop of dimension.

I couldn't resist adding big, glittery stars to the card. These sparkling embellishments reflected Lesley's vibrant personality, making the card as dazzling as the birthday girl herself.

I chose a message from the Smile Stamp set. This thoughtful addition completed the card, conveying warm wishes to Lesley on her special day.

Crafting this birthday card for Lesley was not just a creative endeavor; it was a celebration of a wonderful friendship and the joy that Lesley brings to the crafting community. Don't forget to join the celebration by stopping by the Trendy Twine blog and leaving your heartfelt birthday wishes for Lesley. Happy birthday, Lesley – may your day be as bright and beautiful as the creations you inspire!

Cheers to another year of creativity, friendship, and Trendy Twine magic!

Trendy Bakers Twine - Gratitude Jar

Hi Trendy Fans!

In the hustle and bustle of our daily lives, it's easy to get caught up in the challenges and stressors that come our way. However, taking a moment to reflect on the positive aspects of our lives can significantly impact our overall well-being. One simple and creative way to foster gratitude is through the use of a gratitude jar. I’m so excited to share how this humble jar can become a powerful tool for cultivating mindfulness and appreciation for the good things in life.

I started with a mini mason jar, but feel free to choose any size that suits your preferences. The key is to make it personal and meaningful to you. I opted for Fall-themed paper to bring a touch of seasonal warmth to my gratitude jar. Creating a label for the front of the jar adds a personal touch, making it visually appealing and inviting.

I used the vibrant orange Annie’s Paper Boutique Mango Tag-It to make a fun tag. Utilizing a rub-on transfer sticker kit allowed me to customize the tag. 

I used a circle die cut to add a touch of elegance, creating a charming aesthetic for the jar. Choosing a sentiment from the Happy Thanksgiving Stamp Set adds a warm element, reminding us to be thankful not just during the holiday season but throughout the year. 

The final touch and to tie it all together I adhered the Mango Tag-It to the jar with most gorgeous color Totally Pumpkin Trendy Twine.

A gratitude jar is more than just a decorative piece; it's a powerful tool for shifting your mindset towards positivity and appreciation. By taking a few moments each week or month to jot down something you're grateful for, you're actively cultivating a habit of mindfulness and gratitude. Embrace the process of creating your gratitude jar, infusing it with your unique style and personality. As you watch the jar fill with expressions of thanks, you'll find that the practice of gratitude becomes a cherished part of your life.

Trendy Bakers Twine - Eat, Drink & Be Scary

 Hi Trendy Fans!

It's Shelly from My Paper Love, and I've got an adorable treat idea that's perfect for the spookiest time of the year. Whether you're planning a Halloween party, looking for a unique way to hand out candy, or just want to surprise your friends and family with a little something special, this project is a fantastic choice. We're going to add a dash of creativity with our spotlight twine, Spooktacular Taffy Trendy Twine, to make these treats even more delightful.

To begin I started with the Candy Cubes. These 2" x 2" square clear boxes are the ideal vessels for all kinds of Halloween goodies. The clear box allows the lucky recipient to catch a glimpse of what's inside. 

I wanted to add some spooky flair. I cut out some Halloween-themed card stock in a size that fits perfectly on the front of your candy cube. Whether it's pumpkins, bats, ghosts, or witches, there's a design out there to match your Halloween style.

Now comes the fun part - filling up those clear boxes with mouthwatering chocolate candies. You can use classic favorites like mini candies, candy corn, or any candies that you know your guests or trick-or-treaters will love. The transparent cube will make the treats look irresistible!

To add that extra bit of charm and make my treat holder truly Spooktacular, I used Spooktacular Taffy Trendy Twine. This twine is the perfect finishing touch for my Halloween treats. I carefully wrapped it around the cube and tied a great big bow on top. The vibrant colors and playful twist of the twine  instantly gave my candy cube holder a festive feel.

To complete my Halloween treat, I added a little tag with a spooky sentiment from the Happy Halloween Stamp Set. 

And there you have it – a Spooktacular Halloween candy cube treat holder! These are perfect for party favors, gifts, or just to spread some Halloween joy. The combination of transparent cubes, colorful twine, and Halloween-themed decorations will make your treats stand out in style.

So, go ahead and get creative this Halloween with these candy cube holders.

Are you ready to get into the Halloween spirit and craft something spooktacular? I've got just the project for you!


I'm absolutely thrilled to share a super fun Halloween card using some fantastic products, including Trick or Treat Trendy Twine, and Enchanting Sequins.

To begin I carefully chose all the coordinating papers for the BOO die. I coordinated it with the Trick or Treat Trendy Twine in vibrant orange and purple. Once I had all the pieces cut, I adhered them to a green  card stock mat for extra contrast. I wrapped the twine around the front of the mat. Secure the ends of the twine on the back of the card with adhesive.

To give this card a magical sparkle, I took some Enchanting Sequins in a festive blend of metallic purple and orange. I carefully adhered them around the die-cut shape to add some extra pizzazz and Halloween charm. These sequins will catch the light and make your card shine. To make my card even more spooktacular, I used the cute black bat embellishments. Placing them strategically around my card to give it that perfect Halloween touch.

Trendy Bakers Twine - Rock this Day!

Hi There!

I am over on the Trendy Blog sharing this fun card made with the spotlight of the month,  Aqua Licorice Trendy Twine

While creating this little beauty, I had one goal in mind, to design a card that would bring joy to a special person's heart. The Aqua Licorice Trendy Twine was my inspiration, and I couldn't be more excited about the result.

To create the perfect backdrop for my project, I began by carefully selecting a combination of aqua, black, and white papers. I wanted to put a new twist on a different technique. I mapped out a design of where I wanted the Aqua Licorice Trendy Twine to flow effortlessly. This step allowed me to visualize the final result. With my design in mind, I allowed the twine to gracefully flow in a diagonal line along the card's length. The result was nothing short of spectacular. Once I achieved the desired design, I carefully applied a touch of glue to ensure that the twine remained in place, giving the card a polished and professional finish.

To infuse a sense of wonder and excitement into the card, I introduced die-cut stars. These stars were matted together, creating a sense of depth and dimension. 

To break up the bold houndstooth patterned paper, I added aqua card stock. This not only provided a striking contrast but also accentuated the vibrant aqua color of the twine. No card is complete without the perfect message. I carefully selected a sentiment from the "Choose Happy" stamp set and stamped it onto the aqua card stock. This final touch added a personal and uplifting note to the card, ensuring that it carried a message of joy and positivity.

This project showcased how Aqua Licorice Trendy Twine can transform a simple card into a work of happiness for someone special. I hope this project inspires you to embrace new techniques and colors in your crafting endeavors.

Stay trendy, stay creative, and keep spreading joy with your handmade creations! You can see all the products I've used to create this card over on the Trendy Blog!

Trendy Bakers Twine - Happy Fall

Hi There!

I'm over on the Trendy Blog to share a creative idea to use the spotlight twine Aqua Midnight Trendy Twine. It's a shade that exudes both elegance and vibrancy, making it perfect for all kinds of crafting projects. 

For this project, I'm starting with a simple yet stylish base: Black Chevron Bags. These bags offer a sophisticated backdrop that makes the Aqua Midnight Trendy Twine and fall-themed tag really pop.

I wanted a fall-themed tag that would complement the Aqua Midnight Trendy Twine and the Black Chevron Bags. So, I decided to create my own using free pumpkin graphics and some carefully selected fonts. 

I began by finding pumpkin graphics online and came across an aqua blue pumpkin and quickly realized this graphic captured the essence of fall and added a touch of rustic charm I was looking for. You can easily find free graphics on various design resource websites.

On the tag, I added the "Happy Fall" and once the design was complete, I printed it out on high-quality white card stock. I used a paper cutter to trim the tags to the desired size and adhered to the White Tag-it. 

To add that extra special touch, I threaded a length of Aqua Midnight Trendy Twine through the hole and tied it around the bag. The aqua color beautifully contrasted with the black chevron pattern, creating an eye-catching effect.

And there you have it—a delightful fall treat presentation that's sure to impress. Aqua Midnight Trendy Twine brings a touch of sophistication and fun to your crafting projects, and paired with the Black Chevron Bags and charming fall tags, you have a winning combination.

We hope this project inspires you to get creative and explore the endless possibilities of paper crafting. Whether it's for a special occasion or just to add a bit of joy to your day, we're here to help you make every project a masterpiece.

Stay tuned for more crafting ideas, tips, and trends right here. Until next time, happy crafting!

Trendy Bakers Twine - Happy Birthday

Hi There!

Have you been over to the Trendy Blog? I shared a fun Birthday card using some gorgeous Trendy Twine.

The Cherry Lemonade Trendy Twine. is a burst of festivity, blending the vibrant hues of red and yellow into a captivating twist. What makes it even more amazing is its seamless coordination with shades like Cranberry, Lemon Tart, Totally Red, Totally Lemon, and Lemon Peppermint. This opens up a world of possibilities for your crafting endeavors, allowing you to mix and match with confidence.

For this project, I decided to go for a clean and simple look, crafting the card using kraft papers. The pairing of these earthy tones with the Cherry Lemonade Trendy Twine creates a charming contrast that's eye-catching and sometimes, less truly is more.

One of the highlights of this card is the use of tall alpha dies. These dies allowed me to create a striking focal point that beautifully complements the Cherry Lemonade Trendy Twine. It's all about those small details that make a big impact, and these alpha dies certainly do the trick.

For the sentiment of birthday wishes, I found the perfect sentiment in the Smile Stamp Set. With a bit of clever masking, I isolated the word "Birthday" from the sentiment, allowing it to shine as the perfect message for this celebratory card. It's amazing how a well-chosen sentiment can capture the essence of the occasion.

And of course, what's a card without a finishing touch? A dainty bow made from the Cherry Lemonade Trendy Twine. is the crowning glory of this creation.
