Baker’s Twine Bliss

Baker’s Twine is just one of those¬† simple crafting products that just makes me happy. The bright colors make it fun and there is just so many things you can do with it. Brown paper packages especially look darling tied up with it.

My favorite Baker’s Twine hands-down has got to be Maya Road. Their twine cording is sturdy and doesn’t drop. I hate droopy bows. It’s three-ply so you can get a great triple color combo too.

 

The other day I really wanted to try out doing a twine background with it and I loved the results. It’s really easy to do with a few simple steps.

Baker’s Twine Background Steps

  1. Adhere double sided adhesive sheet to the area you wish to cover.
  2. Remove protective backing.
  3. Adhere lengths of twine across panel and press securely into place. I liked to leave 1-2″ looped at each side and just make a few passes with each color.
  4. When background is covered, trim off excess loops from edges of card base.

The little wooden spools also look darling wrapped with coordinating twine cording.

Have a creative day!
