One of the newer products on the scene these days is baker's twine. Coming in many different colours by several different manufacturers, it is very versatile and is that perfect touch on a card or layout. On pages 28-29 of our winter issue (view here), Vicki Boutin showed a variety of ways to use twine and today, design team member Summer Fullerton has another great tutorial on how to showcase twine in a layout!

Cuttlebug & Die or Punch
Xyron Sticker Maker
Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher (optional)
Die cut or punch your favorite shape into a tag.
Cut a scrap piece of cardstock slightly larger than the die cut and run it thru your Xyron Sticker maker. Note: if you don’t have a sticker maker then coat your scrap piece of paper with adhesive.
Going back and forth cover the sticky side of the scrap piece of paper with Baker’s Twine. Allow the twine to extend past the edges of the cardstock.
Once your scrap piece of cardstock is covered in twine trim the excess twine as seen in the photo.
Adhere the cardstock covered with twine to the back of the tag. For a little added fun touch I add mini staples in a few spots around the heart.
Using your favorite die and any color twine this can be customized to fit just about any layout, project or card. The possibilities are endless!
