Hi! Kathy Martin here. I hope you are enjoying Technique Week. Today's topic is baker's twine. Oh how I love thee, let me cound the ways! Again, as with yesterday's topic, washi tape, I don't consider myself and expert, but I'd like to share some of my favorite ways to use twine.
As part of the Doodlebug Design team, I get to work with the beautiful Doodle Twine and a majority of my projects include at least a little twine. I think of it as a staple like salt and pepper. I like to wrap it around cards.
I often use twine to top tags.
On the following Halloween card I used a glue pen to draw a border around my patterned paper and then lined it with twine.
Twine makes the purr-fect accent on scrapbook pages for kitty.
Recently I participated in a team up between Bella Blvd. and The Twinery and the presure was on to think of some unique ways to use twine. The first project I did combined both common and a not so common ways to use twine.
To make the frame use a scoring board to create straight lines for your twine. Then punch tiny holes at both ends of each line for threading the twine through.
To ensure the baker's twine lays flat along your scored lines, use a glue pen to trace over them. I did this after the twine was in place by rolling it to the side just a tad.
My favorite team-up project is this baby card.
I used the same technique as the frame on the above Easter Eggs page.
Did you see all the fabulous ways my teammates used baker's twine last week here on write. click. scrapbook? The entire week was dedicated to twine. Click here if you missed it.
I hope you've been inspired to get crafty with your stash of baker's twine. Tomorrow is the the last day of Technique Week. I look forward to you joining me. :)
