Easy Bakers Twine Candies!

Hi everyone! 
 Click HERE for this weeks Monday Challenge!

Yesterday was my DT day over at She's a Sassy Lady so I thought I would share this fun project with all of you today.  I saw these fun bakers twine candies in the July 2011 issue of Paper Crafts Magazine and I just had to try them!  (They are super easy)

I used Honey Dew, Caribbean, and Blossom Bakers Twine.   The patterned paper is from Making Memories and Pebbles Inc.

 Scroll down for a video showing how I made these sweet bakers twine candies!

I used dimensional squares to give the candies a little lift.

The stamped sentiment is from Sweet Sentiments #2.

I cut the circles for the candies from the George cartridge (1 inch - real dial size), the square stamp frames are from Gypsy Wanderings (Shift-tag, button #45 cut at 1.35 inches)  I used my paper cutter to cut colored squares for the inside.

I used my sewing machine to stitch around the pink patterned paper and around each of the small squares.  The border punch is from Martha Stewart (doily edge)

Here is a video showing how to make these fun bakers twine candies!

Have a wonderful day  :)
