Baker’s Twine Storage Tip

Posted by on Oct 1, 2015 in 3D, Other, Tips

Today I’d like to share a great storage tip, shared by by my friend, Lisa, from Lethbridge, AB.  Recycle empty containers from buttons and accessories and  empty ribbon rolls.  Cut two  2 3/8″ scallop circles and punch a 1″ circle on the centre. Take the two plastic  centers from an empty ribbon roll and insert them through the holes of the large scallop circle to make a custom spool.  Roll a package of Baker’s Twine onto the spool and feed the end of the twine through a hole on the side of the container. You can pierce the hole with a paper piercer.  Punch two extra scallop circles for the outside of the container to coordinate with the color of your Baker’s Twine. i made my g.first custom spool tonight and am definitely planning to make more very soon!  Thanks for visiting...

Punches are one of my favorite crafting tools.  Lots of use can, however, dull your punches. Has that ever happened to you?  Did you know there's an easy fix–and it's most likely in your kitchen:  tin foil and waxed paper.  Here's what you do… Fold the foil so that you have multiple layers and punch away. For best results, after you have sharpened your punch, do the same with waxed paper.  This step is not a must, but many feel it gives the best results.  That's it for an inexpensive solution to a very common...
