Chunky Twine Challenge: Rainbow Gift Set by Tya

Hi Doodlebug friends - Tya here to share with you my Chunky Twine project. Twine is one of my go to embellishments, so when we were challenged to use the new Chunky Twine - I knew I had to do something where I could use as many colors as possible. What better way to use lots of color than by using a rainbow.
I decided to make a cute little rainbow themed gift set with a treat box and a frame.

First off is the frame - to make the frame I gathered up several colors of the chunky twine and began wrapping a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inch piece of cardstock with the twine. I added a piece of sticky strip along the back of my cardstock and then began wrapping the individual colors til the whole card is wrapped.

 Next I cut out the word friend on my Silhouette and glued that on top of the twine wrapped cardstock. I then added the word Hello with some Teensy Type letter sticker and put them on some Lily White Sprinkles Vellum. I also added  a button and some stickers from the Kraft in Color collection to finish off the card.
 I picked up a colorful frame at my local store and then added some pattern paper from the Kraft in Color collection and some red cardstock and then the card. I really like the wrapped effect of the twine - it's so fun and eye catching!

Next I found the perfect little bag on my Silhouette and cut it out. I used some Lily White Sprinkles Vellum for the cloud.   I added some rainbow candies to the box. I used this file : Rainbow Gift Box .
Using a glue pen, I added the chunky twine to the coordinating color on the box front. I added a few buttons to finish of the box. The twine adds the perfect touch to the box and adds a fun dimensional element too!

Thanks for stopping by the blog today - I hope I have inspired you to add a splash of color to your projects with this super fun product - I just love the Chunky Twine so much!  Happy Crafting!
