10 Things You Can Do With: Twine

What did we ever do before baker's twine emerged on the
scrapbooking scene?
Thread, string, and plain floss are fine, but nothing says fun like a bit of colourful twine.
Stumped on how to get it on your projects? Here are 10 ideas to get you started:

1. Bundle it.
Practical Scrapper Erin tied scraps of twine together and then glued them onto her layout.

2. Go Spiral.
Practical Scrapper Shir Benovich made a custom embellishment by gluing twine in a spiral on her Jewish New Year card (Shana Tova in Hebrew).

3. Make a Title.
Practical Scrapper Leslii used Bakers Twine and watered down white glue to make the title
"Smile" for this layout.

4. Wrap it.
Practical Scrapper Julie used bakers twine to alter her photo.

 5. Frame it.
Practical Scrapper Karen used bakers twine to make a frame with brads to secure the corners.

6.Go floral.
Practical Leila used bakers twine in her handmade flower

7. Button It.
Practical Scrapper Jenny used baker's twine to adhere the buttons to her layout.

8. Criss cross it.
Practical Scrapper Liz used baker's twine to create the diagonal crosses on the ice cream cone.

 9. Tag it.
Practical Scrapper Erin used floss to accent tags on her page.

 10. Make argyle.
Practical Scrapper Christine made a fun argyle pattern using patterned paper and twine.

Happy Tuesday!

Thanks for these wonderful suggestions. I especially love the argyle one, I'll have to use this idea on a layout for my son, he loves argyle.
