Scarecrow Treat Box Using Orange Truffle Trendy Twine

As I wrapped up October, I also wrapped up my time as a Trendy Little Sister. And though that could be sad, it's not!!! Why? Because now I am a full fledge Trendy Gal. That's right!
 
I have been asked to stay on the Trendy Twine team along with my fellow sisters, Beth and Tammy!
 
And today is my first post as we kick off the November challenge!
 
Fall Foliage - Autumn or Thanksgiving theme, foliage, & Trendy Twine.
 
Here is my project using Orange Truffle Trendy Twine:
 
 
My Scarecrow Treat Box is from My Scrap Chick! I plan on leaving this in the dining room and stashing notes in it for my kids to find after school during the month of November. I want my kiddos to always know that I am thankful for them!!! And what better time to take an opportunity to teach them more about being thankful as we all turn our minds towards the Thanksgiving holiday.
 
To put this together, I cut out the pieces from the Scarecrow file and assembled it. I then added twine around my box and used it to decorate my scarecrow. I cut a leaf from the Autumn Leaves Trio file also from MSC. I stamped my sentiment using Punkin Patch stamps Heirloom Traditions set onto the leaf and used pop dots to attach it to the front of the box. My dp for the front and side panels is from Doodlebug Designs Happy Harvest 6x6 paper pack.
