Bakers twine ...

... I've been asked a couple of questions recently about bakers twine.

The first was by Louise and what do I use to stick the twine down with. I use Glossy Accents under each point that crosses and then at the top of each loop.


J and I were having a chat about how I get the twine to loop, and we realised it was because I keep it on reels or pegs, rather than flat cards. So if you're having trouble with looping your twine rewind it!!

I was eavesdropping on your tips last weekend lol! You can also get the twine to loop by twisting it, by the way :)

Fun - Do like loops and wandering twine. What stamps/font have you used for the journaling?

I like to attach mine with the tiny attacher/staples but yep use glossy accents or even glue dots stretched really thin under loops.

You all are tempting me to head over to TK Maxx for the stash shopping.

Thanks for the tips.....last time I attached twine to a layout I used too much glue!
