Trendy Twine's Christmas Tin Blog Hop

Good Morning and welcome to the

Trendy Twine Christmas Tin Blog Hop

It's a perfect way to start the month of December and a special 12 days of Christmas celebration where the DT will be WOWing you all with creative gift giving ideas using Trendy Twine (of course) as well as other products found in the Trendy Twine store. But we will have more on that tomorrow.

Today the DT is showcasing all the different "tins" that are offered in the Trendy Twine store and getting you all in the gift giving mood!

Sit back, grab your favorite beverage, and get ready to be inspired!
If you have come here from Tammy, then you are in the right spot. If you just happened on to my page, you may want to start back at the Trendy Twine blog so as not to miss any of the great creations we have for you.
Today, I am using the Small Treat Tin for my project.
For me, Christmas is Christ! So I wanted to start my December
with a reminder of His birth in the manger.
I used Carta Bella's Merry and Bright paper collection to decorate my tin on the top and on the bottom half sides. I used design #49706 from the Silhouette Store to make cutting my pieces easier. It was a bit off, but I altered it to make it work. I then added Holly Berry Trendy Twine around the top sides by adding tape along the length of the sides to hold the twine. My paper piecing of Baby Jesus comes from My Scrap Chick's Christmas Nativity 1 - Manger set. I altered the manger a bit as well. The sentiment is from My Craft Spot's Tiny Tags Christmas stamp set. I stamped it on to a die cut from Spellbinder's Nested Ovals set. I used pop dots to add Baby Jesus in the Manger. I finished it all off with a bow of Holly Berry Trendy Twine above my sentiment and some small gems. This little tin is perfect for storing 25 Advent scripture cards for your daily readings. It is also a great size to put in a few pieces of candy to give someone as a treat.
Here are my supplies from the Trendy twine store:
 It is a blog hop so there has to be prizes, right! We will actually have two lucky winners. Each winner will receive a spool of Candy Cane Trendy Twine and a set of printable Christmas tags. To win, all you need to do is leave a comment on each blog and become a follower of each blog as well.
Be watching the Trendy Twine blog as Day 2 of the Trendy Twine 12 Days of Christmas happens tomorrow. We have 11 more days of gift packaging ideas coming your way!!!
Head on over to Jessi's for your last stop on the hop. I am so glad you joined us today!

Day 2 of the scripture reading that I am following this Advent season:
1 Corinthians 1:3-9
Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. I give thanks to God always for you because of the grace of God which was given you in Christ Jesus, that in every way you were enriched in him with all speech and all knowledge--even as the testimony to Christ was confirmed among you--so that you are not lacking in any spiritual gift, as you wait for the revealing of our Lord Jesus Christ; who will sustain you to the end, guiltless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. God is faithful, by whom you were called into the fellowship of his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.
