DIY Bakers Twine
By natalme on January 04, 2012
Do a search for bakers twine on Pinterest and you'll be flooded with brilliant gift and packaging ideas. I saw a tutorial recently to make your own, so here's my rendition of homemade bakers twine.
Start with white crochet thread and wind it around a piece of heavy card stock or cardboard.
Take a Sharpee or marker and draw straight lines.
To be honest I didn't love how the Sharpie was working. It didn't seem to bleed to the other side and it looked uneven.
I tried a paint marker next and it did the trick. It took a few minutes longer to dry, but it bled all the way through the string.
I read online to use Sharpies, so to each his own. Maybe I didn't press down hard enough? Either way, the paint marker did the job.
Here it is all packaged and ready to gift!
Super cheap, super fast, and super cute!
