Technique Swap - Bakers Twine

This month's team swap was to use baker's twine. I loved all the cards the ladies created (at the bottom of this post). Here are the set by step instructions to do mine (inspired by Julie Day). 

First you'll need to cut your paper. I used Smoothie cardstock at 5 1/4 x 4 and Kraft Paper at 5 x 3 3/4 on a Daisy White card base 5 1/2 x 4 1/4.

Next adhere the layers so they center in the middle. I love to use our Memories Bonding Glue for this.

Next I used our ruler and marker to create some faux stitching.

You'll want to stamp your sentiment in a dark color to show up on the Kraft Paper well.

Then add a bunch of Glue Dots to your card and start by swirling the bakers twine around and round.

Continue to add dots as needed and make your lollipop larger. I used about 72" of baker's twine.

When you have the size lollipop you want add a lollipop stick to the bottom. I found these at Michael Craft Store and cut them in half. I used the Mini Glue Dots to attach.

Last thing is to add a little bow. I simply tied a quick know and trimmed. Here are all the cards made by the team.
