Birthday Party Invitation with "Trendy" Balloons

To enter the drawing for the My Creative Scrapbook prizes, please see the blog hop here.

I love the trend of using twine in papercrafting. It's so fun and versatile.  Twine is great for packaging, of course, but I also love to incorporate it into cards and layouts.

Here, I used Trendy Twine's Chocolate Sprinkles as balloon strings on a child's birthday invitation.



Patterned paper and embellishments are from October Afternoon, mostly the Cakewalk line.

Here's a closeup of the balloons. I used a punch, pop-dotted the balloons on the card, then added twine.


Trendy Twine has a challenge this month to use twine on a boy-themed project.  The project can feature boys or it can be something for a boy. There's a great prize for the winner! You can find all the details here. For more projects from the Trendy Twine design team, please visit the Trendy Twine blog.
