Trendy Baker’s Twine – Hand Over the Candy

Hello and welcome back, everyone! 

Today I’m over on the Twine It Up Blog as the guest designer for the month of October. I’m so honored and super excited to have this opportunity. 

This month’s featured products are

Gray Licorice Trendy Twine and Skinny Candy Chutes.

I’m sharing a sweet treat and card combo. 

To create the sweet treat you will need a Skinny Candy Chute, painter’s tape or washi tape, inexpensive paint brush, and orange, yellow and white chalk paint. 

Using tape, tape off 5 sections to be painted. Starting with orange chalk paint, paint the bottom section completely, paint half of the fourth section with orange, too. Blend yellow chalk paint into orange (fourth section) while the paint is still wet. Paint the third section yellow and half of the second section yellow. Finish off with white chalk paint blending white with yellow in the second section and completely paint the first section white. Let dry. Fill with candy corn. 

To create the card I used pattern paper from my stash with coordinating stickers, Gray Licorice Trendy Twine and Annie’s Paper Boutique Happy Halloween Stamp Set.

I created the sentiment background paper simply by repeat stamping the sentiment in orange and yellow ink and stamped the “trick or treat” sentiment over it using black ink. All the sentiments are from the Happy Halloween Stamp Set. Set to the side. Mat a 4.25″x5.5″ top-fold card with pattern paper, layer the stamped background paper using fun or 3D mounting foam. Using an edge die-cut cut a piece of pattern paper and adhere to the left side of the card. Add stickers using 3D mounting foam, adhere clear sequins and embellish with Gray Licorice Trendy Twine. Stamp Happy Halloween inside the card.
