AnnaBelle Stamps 'Say It With...Twine'

Hi Guys,

I hope you're all well and had a wonderful week!

It's Friday so that means it's time for another challenge brought to you by AnnaBelle Stamps Blog and this weeks challenge is a fun one, so grab your supplies as you need to 'Say It With...

LOVE twine so I simply love this challenge lol!

So here's my card:

I used my twine and created some lollies/sweets that were so easy to make!

1) Punch out a circle of scrap cardstock or cut out a circle free hand.
2) Cover your circle with adhesive.  I used double sided red sticky tape.
3) Starting in the middle wind your twine around in a circular motion and when you come to your last round, apply a little glue and adhere the end to the back of your circle.
4) For the lolly wrappers use some cello but for my wrappers I used a piece of packing that I had.  Placed your 'lolly' in the middle and tape the two edges together at the back of your lolly.
5) Twist your two ends and if you like tie a little piece of twine or cotton to keep your ends from unraveling and presto, you have a cute lolly/sweet ready to use in your projects!

Here's a close up of my 'Lollies':

I was inspired to stamp my 'Happy Birthday' sentiment border around my card after seeing Andrea's Awesome Card that I just had to 'CASE" lol!

AnnaBelle Stamps:  'All Squared' and 'Background By Designs-Numbers' Stamp Sets, 1.5mm Red/White Hemp Twine, 1.5mm Lime Hemp Twine, 0.8mm White Hemp Twine

Other:  Red and White Cardstock Red and Black Ink, Double Sided Tape, Scrap Plastic Wrapper
