Baker's Twine Tips

\
Hi! I really love using baker's twine, and I like to thread it through buttons and such. I also threaded it back and forth through some of the lace for an accent.Sometimes it's hard to get it through the holes, especially if you use more than one piece. I have a quick tip that makes it easy. Just take a tiny piece of double sided tape, put it right on the very ends of both pieces and twist, kind of like the end of a shoe string! Then it's easy to get it through anything you want it to go through!!!!
I used that technique on this card, along with lots of stickles!!!
Here are a couple of closeups where you can see where I ran it through the button and also the pretty lace.


supplies used:
pink ribbon

I added some "faux stitching" with my Zig markers. I just used a vintage image and then used different colors of stickles on it to bring out some dimension. I hope you play with your baker's twine and have fun using mixed colors and combinations!!! 

Thanks so stopping by and please come back to see what's next!!!
