I always have a supply of bakers twine close at hand (we stock lots of colours) - it is an easy way to smarten up plain brown or white paper, and at 100m in length it lasts a really long time. This Christmas I tried out three different ways of wrapping using bakers twine.
1. Simple plaiting.
2. Twine-stamped paper: I wrapped some string around a spare stamp block, and quite like how it shows the stripy effect of the string.
3. Bakers twine tassels: just wrap it round your thumb and first finger, tie a piece of string around it and snip!
Which is your favourite?
