I {heart} Bakers Twine

IMG_8658

I had some fun this weekend with these little itty bags, stamps and twine. I’m in love with these simple thank you cards.

I LOVE Bakers Twine.

Divine Twine has the best twine. I love all the bright fun colors they have! Doesn’t twine just make everything cuter? I could tie it around everything and I practically have been lol!

I tied some twine on my craft desk to clip little reminders. Super cute and easy… but very useful!

Then I made these cute little chevron goody bags for the Elmers Craft Night I hosted on Saturday.  I’ll be posting about that later on along with a fun giveaway!

And I am in love with these bitty bags from Whiskar Graphics. Fill them with chocolate to make the perfect little treat bag!

Staple a little flag on and stamp ENJOY… you know incase you had to remind them.. lol!

Then tie a little twine around these cute chevron bags and hand them out to your friends.  Don’t these make the  perfect little party favor, thank you, or just because treat?

Thank you Whiskar Graffics for sending me some of your products to review. I LOVE it all! Make sure to visit them for printables, twine and paper goods.

    Do you do anything with the ends of your string to make them not come apart??

      I usually tie the ends in a knot or for smaller projects like cards I use fray check.

    I’m still bummed I missed the Elmer’s craft night :( I couldn’t stop thinking about how I should have been there crafting with you and the other girls-sorry to drop that on you short notice! Next time I’ll be better at keeping track of all the things I need to be at :/ Those chevron stripe bags are adorable and I LOVE Bakers Twine! I would tie it on everything too! You make the cutest stuff!

      How fun, I haven’t seen it at my Michaels yet. And yeah you can use it on everything. Pretty much anything you would use ribbon for and other craft projects.

    LOVE chevron. LOVE LOVE chevron bags! The craft stores out here don’t carry baker’s twine. Any suggestions on where to get it at a reasonable price?

        Next pay day I intend to hit up the Divine Twine and order some! I want to make some Jams and Jellies and I am thinking this would be perfect for tying on the tags!

    Thanks for the idea! I found some bags that will be perfect for my son’s first birthday next month–party favors! I ordered 5 baker’s twine spools. My hubby might not let me read your blog anymore…

    Oh I can’t tell you how much I love, love, love Bakers Twine – especially the red and white colour combo.

    Looks like I might need to invest in some itty bitty bags now too lol!

    Um its no lie, I have a huge obsession with bakers twine!
    http://bit.ly/kFPfTb .. I use it on all my packages!

    You know another cute thing to do, tie a little bow around your finger and wear the twine as a cute ring! =)
