Just the current fad.... in button holes, on tags, in place of ribbon, just anywhere you feel like. I bought a 20 yard spool for Christmas time projects - just enough for my projects. I still have some left. I can't imagine buying all these in large quantities just because it is less expensive (per yard) and ending up with a bunch I don't end up using as the current fad fades.
Yikes.... Reasonable Ribbon has great price and selection but not reasonable (no pun intended lol) shipping prices to Canada.... anyone else know of some place with decent shipping to Canada? TIA!!
I bought a selection of twine from Greenmunch, Bakers Twine | Canada, and they have great prices and great options for choosing several different colours in 15-yard samples, or you can even choose 2-yard samples and get free shipping. Even better, they are in Alberta- Sherwood Park. They carry both Divine Twine and The Twinery. I was very happy with my purchase from them!
Couldn't you just get real bakers twine at the grocery store and use re-inkers to colour to match your product? I saw a big spool of it today for about $2.
Actually I did see a tutorial on making your on Baker's Twine. I can't remember where I saw it. Might have been on You Tube. If you Google "making your own" I bet that you can find it.
The instructions included these supplies:
As I remember it I wrapped the ruler with masking tape
used scotch tape to hold one end of the twine to one end of the ruler and wrapped the twine around the ruler in a spiraling fashion and attaching it at the other end with another piece of scotch tape.
Using the marker I made random marks along both sides and removed the twine. It does indeed work out great.
The draw back is the tedium of doing this for many colors. I think if one has the money that buying an assortment is the way to go.
