For this hop, I wanted to create projects with a Fall theme in mind.
The Twinery's Mandarin twine is a gorgeous orange for Fall themed projects!! I thought it would make a perfect Fall leaf! And the Lemondrop twine is a perfect compliment!
To make this leaf focal point, I traced a die cut shape onto my cardstock and used a knife to cut out the leaf shape. Then, I took a separate piece of cardstock and covered it with adhesive (I used my ATG gun to do this). Then, I began laying the twine on top vertically until it was covered. Then, I adhered the two pieces together.
The Twinery has an Autumn pack of twine in the store all bundled up and ready to come to your home!! You can see all the details here! Isn't it beautiful? :)
I also created another card, this one is super, super simple!
My Walmart now has a $1 section in the craft aisle and I found these fun shaped Halloween cards. I thought that they were too cute to pass up! I made a rosette flower and punched 3 holes in it and then strung Charcoal twine through the centers to make it into a spider's web.
I made a tiny hole for the twine to be thread through so that when you open the card you see this....
...a little dangling spider with googly eyes! The twine is the perfect webbing for the spider!
The little yellow moon was added to cover the rosette web from the front. I kept the inside fairly simple but you could decorate it up to your heart's content!
