This is the second post of the day. Be sure to scroll down so you don't miss Kerri's wonderful birthday card.
I chose the Baker's Twine because there is such a fabulous selection of colors. I absolutely could not pass up having them all.
This is a perfect month to show you some table decorations that can easily be made with a few recycled discards from your kitchen and some paint from your craft room.
These are created with jars that you probably toss every day. I painted the inside of the jars with regular light blue acrylic paint that has been diluted ( just a little with water). You will actually see that in some of the jars I watered down the paint a little too much and it separated on the inner wall of the jar when it dried. I then had to add an additional coat of paint to the interior of the jar, so that it would be completely covered. This time I used a light green paint over the blue paint.
To finish off the jars I tied a tag to the jars with Baker's Twine and Seam Binding. The Seam binding is held in to position on the jars with Helmar 450 Adhesive.
When I told my mom about the project that I was working on she gave me some of her old bottles for my project. I decided not to paint them and just allow the milky glazed glass to show. I printed vintage cards off of the internet for some of the bottles. This project could easily be adapted to fit the theme of your holiday of party.
April is a really busy month around my house with birthdays and anniversaries. There are three children with birthdays in April; my daughter and my 2 nieces. My parents also have birthdays and they will be 79 and 80 years old this month.
I thought I would be creative and come up with some fun birthday cards using items I had at home and my stash of Really Reasonable Ribbon. I have been looking at all of the cards and it is a little intimidating. I am not usually a card maker but thought it would be fun to give it a try.
I have been mailing them daily to my daughter for her Birthday Week as she calls it.
The birthday cards are ready for the Queen Bee's of the Month and I have used an assortment of Really Reasonable Ribbon to embellish them. For card, scrapbook pages or projects Gingham's are definitely a go to for my projects. But I like to mix it up and had an assortment of ribbon to use. This is the collection of ribbons I used for these cards are Stitches, Gingham's, Organza, and Baker's Twine.
The Baker's Twines are one of my favorite embellishments for pages and packages and Really Reasonable Ribbon has a wide assortment of colors in their assortment. The collection of 12 colors has 60 yards for only $9.49 that is a great deal.
Another way to use the baker's twines are on your scrapbook pages. This page featured the Orange Bakers Twine included in the assortment package.
I can already see that I will need to order more of these beautiful Baker's Twines. I have only touched the surface of what I would like to use them for.
