Spooling Around...

Did you know that when you order Baker's Twine from the store, it comes on an adorable wooden spool? It's the cutest little thing, that Baker's Twine on it's own little spool. And check out the colors!

Recently, we asked our team to show you what they did with the spools that they received in their boxes.

Audrey stuck some straight pins into her bulletin board and hung the spools there. What a great storage & display option! Not only does she get to see at a glance what colors she has, but she also has her stash right at her fingertips. Just pull a little off the spool and cut to use.
Bente made some adorable bracelets for her girls using the spools as embellishments. After using her Baker's Twine, she slid the spools onto ribbon or lace, and embellished them. What an adorable idea!

Bente also used the spools with a bit of twine still on them to embellish a mini album!
Danielle used the spools as a decorative touch on her no-sew dress form. You can see all the directions on how to make this project HERE.
Here are a few more spool ideas:
  • Paint them!
  • Mist them. Most mists work very well on wood.
  • Add them to the tops of wrapped gifts. You could tie your package with twine instead of ribbon, and add a spool or two instead of a bow.
For more Baker's Twine ideas, there is a class coming to Miss Art's Papercrafting School soon that will feature it! If you love twine, this class will be for you. You can learn more about Miss Art's HERE.
