I have loads of baker twine and not a clue of what to do with it! LOL :) I have used bits of it to do small things, like tie on buttons or wrap a little around a tag...but have not made a dent into my supply. Since we have more coming this month in the kit, anyone want to help me out with some ideas?
You could cut a few lengths of it and use it as a border under a picture, staple at both ends.
Layer double sided tape down in layers and make words from it.
sewing on layouts
i cant think of any more right now lol
I use it for lots of stuff besides scrapbooking - wrapping presents, baked goods (ha - it's original intent!), etc. Are you on pinterest? If you search baker's twine, there are some cute ideas on there too for ways to use it. :)
You could send some to me ;) hehe
I LOVE it for wrapping presents. Kraft wrapping paper + twine = perfection!
I've seen flowers made from them, or "filling-in" areas that have been cut out of a paper. (I can't seem to put into words a good description of that, hrmph)
I tend to use it as I would ribbon, but I have quite a bit too. (not complaining, I like the stuff!) I look forward to seeing other ideas. :)
Here we go this is what I mean by filling in. I have seen this done with hearts & flowers and it would look neat behind a title that was die-cut too.
Here's the website I got the image from http://whiskergraphics.com/blog/2012/01/divine-twine-butterfly-card/
You can make little pom-poms ... use a fork to wind around then through the centre tines to tie off. Snip on each outside tine and voila! :D
Games... I SO wish we had a Like or even a LOVE button for posts on the forum... that card is seriously stinkin cute!
very cool gina!
i think SC should have a class on using twine too!
You could always go crazy with it like i did here
@Games.... Thank you for posting that photo!!! I am going to accept that as my new challenge. It will also force me to start learning my new Cameo too... bonus!!!
And Alissa, I love the class idea!!
Shawna, I love your layouts! A twine heavy layout is in my near future... thanks for the inspiration!! What type of adhesive did you use? My fear with using my typical adhesive is that it will stick for now, but will come apart as the years go on...
Marisa, Bella Blvd teamed up with The Twinery a couple weeks ago and I was amazed at what the Bella DT did with the twine.
Check out what Kimberly Neddo did with the twine in this first link...AMAZING.
dpayne, thanks so much for sharing!! I LOVE day 3 the most... the circle! Day 1 is amazing too but definitely a bit too advanced for a twiner rookie like me :)
I am so excited about all of these ideas.... hopefully I will have some twine-y layouts in the gallery soon! Thanks everyone!!!!
Loved reading all these responses, and thanks for sharing those links Diane! I was going to say for wrapping presents with Kraft paper too, that peppermint twine would be perfection for Christmas.
I used my ATG and it seems to be holding fine.
If anything else fails to use up all the twine, try this:

LOL Elisa!!! I wonder what the hubby would think if he came home and there was twine strung EVERYWHERE. "Look, honey, I decorated!!"
ROFL! Oh my gosh! Who was talking about their husband/boyfriend just not "getting it" when they wanted to buy some new throw pillows?? Can you imagine *his* face??? I am seriously cracking up right now!! :)
