Baker's Twine seems to be popping up everywhere these days. I must admit that I'm drawn to its simple beauty. Whether wrapping a package, hanging tags or ornaments, or creating a handmade garland, it's a nice change from plain thread or ribbon. It has a kind of homey yesteryear feel to it that I love.
I think I'm kind of partial to the red, but baker's twine is popping up in a whole rainbow of gorgeous colors. I was sucked in by the 'ooooh pretty' factor of this sample pack and am anxiously awaiting it's arrival:
I think 120 yards will last me quite some time! I think I will use it to make some pretty hang tags for my new fabric line and probably will wrap packages with it during the holiday season. At around 12 cents per yard, it's not a bad price for such a color sampling. If you're looking to use baker's twine for your business and would like to buy it in bulk, you can find it at wholesalers such as Country Clean Paper Supplies for as little as $8.95 for a 2-POUND cone .... that's 3,400 yards of twine for less than 1 cent per yard! Their colors aren't quite as yummy, but you can get your basics like red, green, blue, and brown. I was also delighted to discover Divine Twine, a biodegradeble and earth-friendly 100% cotton baker's twine option made right here in the USA. Oh how those colors make my heart pitter-patter!
