making baker’s twine

I love the fact that paper crafters are so resourceful!  Baker’s Twine has been hot in the past year or so and leave it to a crafter to find a way to make their own!  I found this tutorial on The Frugal Crafter’s website via SCS on how to make your own Baker’s Twine and it could not be any simpler.  All you need is crochet thread, a ruler, and some markers.  I used Copics, but probably any type of marker will do.  Here is a photo of my first try:

 

This was sooo  easy!  I can now coordinate my twine with the colors on my card.  And it cost so little.  I had to purchase a skein  of crochet thread – which was about $3.  This roll will last me forever and I only have to make what I need at one time so I don’t have to store a bunch of small, different colored pieces of twine in my craft room.  

This is such a great idea and want to thank The Frugal Crafter for posting the video!

Thanks for stopping by today!

It’s still in the 70’s here, but I know elsewhere it is a bit frosty, so here is a small card for all of you who are in need of some warmth!

I used copic x-press it blending cardstock for the main panel.  The image (from Flourishes) was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and  colored with copics.  SU’s Cherry Cobbler red and a miscellaneous blue cardstock were used to create the rest of the card.  Red rhinestones and baker’s twine finish it off.

If you are giving the gift of homemade treats this holiday season, this is the perfect card and sentiment! 

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
