Colorful Baker's Twine Card Background

Today I have a quick card for you featuring Baker's Twine from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  This is such a fun trim to use and it's so versatile.  I was looking around my craft room at all the tools I have from 'back in the day', and there was my Fiskars crimper.  It's been years since I used this tool. 
So, what to do with it.....................

Eureka!!  I can crimp a sheet of paper and use the valleys to hold some baker's twine wrapped around the cardstock.  Now, I could have done this without crimping the paper, but it made it so easy to keep the baker's twine evenly spaced, plus, I used my crimper!  How great is that??!

Take a look around your craft room today and find one of those old tools you never use and figure out a new use for it!  We'd love to see what you create - don't forget to add some ribbon!!  Stop by the RRR Facebook page and show us your project and tell us what 'forgotten' tool you used.
