I must admit, the twine craze has hit me, and, over the past few months, I've gone a little "twine crazy"! I love the look on my cards and layouts, and twine is SO versatile, you can use it almost anywhere! Through the March Shop Hop, Expos, and just browsing, I have come up with quite an assortment of twine. I also recently ordered the "sampler" from The Twinery (www.thetwinery.com), and split it with a friend.
My biggest concern with the twine, was how to organize and store it, so that it could be used efficiently. I got out my embroidery floss, and found some of my flat bobbins and started winding! I quickly ran out, and had to run to my local JoAnn's Fabric, where I discovered they had a package of 28 bobbins with a 2 1/2" metal ring. PERFECT! I could hang the assortment from on of the old shower hooks I have on my metal shelving! I bought a package for just under $2, and finished my organization! Now my twine is all accessible and visible so that I can coordinate with any project! Anyone need some twine? Lol! ~Hoppy Crafting!
