Today, we're featuring baker's twine - there are currently many colours available in stock, from several manufacturers, including We R Memory Keepers, Doodlebug and My Mind's Eye (among others).
First up, a layout from Erin:
"Best Bedtime Story Ever" - Erin Morehouse
Anywhere you might consider plain twine, or embroidery floss, will be a prime candidate for baker's twine. Especially on tags, which are still a big trend.

Next up, a layout from Claude:
"Real Men Wear their Babies" - Claude Campeau
Claude demonstrates that it doesn't take a lot of twine to make an impact - a loop, or two across the page can create nice movement.

And finally a layout by JJ:
"Movie Date" - JJ Sobey
JJ shows a couple of ways to 'sneak' in a little more twine. Try wrapping it around a stick pin:
Or zig-zag over it with a sewing machine. Both are simple tricks to add a pop of colour.
