Time for Some Twine!

Little Yellow Bicycle and The Twinery have teamed up this week for some fun project ideas.
Please visit both the LYB blog and The Twinery blog for some great ideas and inspiration. Below are some holiday cards I created using some of my favorite LYB collections and a variety of twine.
Happy Halloween Card
Twine adds a new and fun spin to spider webs. I used an epoxy button from the Booville Collection and 5 pieces of charcoal twine to create my web. I anchored the button to the center of the card, punched tiny little holes around the edges of my card to feed the twine through, and then wrapped more twine around the interior of the web. Next, I added spiders from the Booville Clear Stickers with pop dots and the Happy Halloween sentiment from the Booville Canvas Pieces. Finally I added a few pieces of candy with the Cardstock Stickers. You can order the entire Booville Collection on our Little Yellow Bargains site.
Fall Card
It's fun to anchor twine with a button and fan it out on your project. I wanted to highlight the beautiful Hello Fall Collection chipboard tree, so I added the button to the trunk with three strands of twine and fanned them out on one side by anchoring them to the card with little punched holes. Then I added the sentiment from the Fabric Favorites as well as some leaves from the Cardstock Die Cuts

Holiday Wishes Card
Rolled paper makes a unique looking project. I used two different patterned papers from the Wonder and Wishes Collection and offset the measurements for each roll by a half an inch starting with 4.5 inches on the bottom and ending with 1 inch on the top. Then I wrapped twine around each end of the rolls of paper and stuck them in order to the corrugated cardstock paper. I added a Flower Button Dot as my tree topper and finally a holiday sentiment from the Fresh Verse Stickers.

Please check out the Little Yellow Bicycle site each day for more ideas from the design team!
