Sting Like a Bee - Trendy Twine's Bumblebee Release

Happy 4th of July everyone! Time to take a break from the BBQ & potato salad to hop along with Trendy Twine for the release of the awesome Bumblebee twine, and to offer a huge warm welcome to two VERY talented ladies I'm sure you're all familiar with. Trendy Twine welcomes Brigit from Brigit's Scraps and Candace (hey great name <wink>) from Scrappin' 2 Little Princesses as the two newest design team members! 

Before I go any further can I just say... 

I said a hip hop,
Hippie to the hippie,
The hip, hip a hop, and you don't stop, a rock it
To the bang bang boogie, say, up jump the boogie,
To the rhythm of the boogie, the beat.

Sorry, Don't know what came over me there... it's like I can't do a blog post w/o referring to some random weird songs LOL but I swear when I went to post about this great blog hop that dang song kept playing in my head... and I had to share the misery ;) Now that we've gotten that out of the way it's time to check out my projects. 

I made a card & a tea light holder. For the card I used an embossing folder from Darice. After running it through my Big Shot I used my craft knife to remove a few of the hexagons. I then lined the back with packing tape and sprinkled on some glitter. To get the adorable twirls in the new Bumblebee Trendy Twine to stay put I ran a piece through a bit of perfect paper adhesive and then shaped it, it dries perfectly clear and yet holds the shape so all I had to do was put a bit more adhesive on the bottom in a few spots to hold it to my card. I used a fork to make my perfect little bow, such a quick and easy way to get tiny perfect bows don't you think?
 For the tea light holder (battery only please!) I did the same technique for the glitter, placing packing tape sticky side out on the panels and covering them with some glitter, the twine was easily wrapped around the base & top and held in place with some double sided tape.
