400 Facebook Fans Celebration, The Twinery Giveaway

Once Again I am humbled, so excited we have reached 400 fans in such a short time, Thank You!
As promised, I have a big treat for you all. One of my favorite things to use to embellish gifts, packaging and just about everything, is baker’s twine. If you like twine you know that The Twinery has the most gorgeous selection of twine available, 100 percent cotton made right here in the USA. Recently I was lucky enough to have won the Summer Collection of twine, and I have had so much fun using it!

I found this idea somewhere in the blog world. I couldn’t find it again but thanks to whoever came up with this! I put my twine spools in an Ikea paper holder! Works perfectly! Aren’t these colors gorgeous!

My favorite Ikea frame that I use for Food Labels Card holders, The Twinery twine is the perfect finishing touch, don’t you think.

I always love to wrap all of my baked goods and gifts to friends with twine!
