Twists with Twine

This post is originally over at Betty Bee's Buzz where I am doing the Monday tutorial! So fly over there after you are done and get ready to play along in the challenge starting Wednesday - use twine! 

Honeybee Courtney Lee reporting for tutorial! 

I have been obsessed with twine recently. It's everywhere! So today I am doing a quick tutorial on how you can use it on your projects! This is the project I made for today! :) 

*Please note I give credit in my video for some ideas from a bloggy friend named Jenny at WeeMemories*
This is my friend Hazel's birthday card and it fits her to a T. 

Cardstock: kraft, Core'dinations (green), PaperTreyInk (yellow, brown, black), DCWV (light blue)
Patterned Paper: My Mind's Eye: Stella and Rose: Hazel Collection™ (Do you like how I used "her" papers? :) I also used a bit of the Hattie Collection (blue and yellow paper)™
Twine: the Twinery in Lemon Drop
Cartridge: Creative Memories Cheerful Seasons™
Ink: Versamark
Stamp: Inkadinkado
Ribbon: Paper Trey Ink and ribbon from Betty Bee!
Glossy Accents

Please remember to head over to Betty Bee's Buzz and play in the challenge starting on Wednesday! You never know what Betty Bee has for a prize! I'm sure it will be some sweet honey!

Love your card Court!!! Thanks for sharing your tutorial. Did you know if you lightly dampen the twine and wrap it around a pencil, when it is dry it will be curly?
