A Pretty little box


Good Morning! 
How's your day going?  Mine is going great.  This month Timeless Twine and The Robin's Nest are partnering up.  I thought it would be fun to make something other than a card.  So I made this pretty little box.   

 
I used the Kraft Brown Twine from Timeless twine for my bow and around the box.  The paper is from The Robin's Nest.  I love the color combination of this paper.  You can visit their store HERE.  Below is another side view. 

 
Here you can see the bow from the top of the box and the Kraft Brown Twine in the middle of it. 

 
Don't forget to stop by Timeless Twine and The Robin's Nest and leave them some bloggy love. 
 
Have a great day!

10 Minute Craft Dash




 
Good Morning!  Today is the start of a new challenge going on over at Pretty Pink Posh.  This challenge is to make something in under 10 minutes and to use the colors yellow, red and blue. 

Timeless Twine is sponsoring the giveaway for this challenge.  Want to see what the prize is?  Okay, I'll show you.  :)  Isn't that twine gorgeous? 



 Here is the card I made.  I used some stickers I had in my stash to help keep the time under 10 minutes. 

 
I used the Cherry Red Twine from Timeless twine for my bow.  I have to say I am really happy with the way the card came out.  I normally use die cuts on my projects but it was a nice change using stickers.

 
It took me 7 minutes and 13 seconds to make this card. 
 
 
I hope you'll join us for this fun challenge.  I had a lot of fun playing along with this challenge.  You can play along HERE
 
Thanks for stopping by today!
