Friendships are Sewn one Stitch at a Time -- for Timeless Twine

Good Monday morning, crafty friends! I'm so excited to be posting today for Timeless Twine! Yeah! I'm a Twine-ista! The theme this month is "something new". That "something new" can be a new technique, a new product from the store, or a new tool we use while making our project.  Well, I'll point out quite a few "new" things while showing you my project for today.

I used a cutting file from The Cutting Cafe I had never used before to make this sewing machine treat box.  Let me show you the other side of the box:

From this side, you can really see the Timeless Twine Baker's Twine in Raspberry Pink better. 
Would you like to see what's inside the box?

More new twine!  There's some Cape Cod Timeless Twine and some gorgeous new Key Lime Sorbet Timeless Twine.  There's also a couple of spools of lace in the box from Webster's Pages.  I made this box as a Christmas present for a friend who is a quilter and sewer.  I thought she'd appreciate some spools of lace, along with the ever-fun Timeless Twine.  I even made the spools that the twine and lace are on -- another new thing for me.
The papers used on this project are:  Kraft paper -- Close To My Heart, designer paper -- My Mind's Eye, Miss Caroline, Howdy Doody 12X12 Papers.  The lace on the box is from Webster's Pages.
Here's the twine colors I used:

I had a great time making this sewing machine box for my good friend and showing it to you.  And, I had a super time working with the wonderful, new Timeless Twine! I'm going to LOVE this next year!
