When I worked with Martha Stewart Crafts products at my last job, I was sometimes a bit skeptical about certain items they’d bring to market. Baker’s twine was one of those items. Didn’t fibers come and go in the 90s? And then ribbons were all the rage and they calmed down? Why was baker’s twine any different? Because Martha made it?
Maybe. I had obtained a few rolls of the twine accent and it has sat in my craft drawer for a while. Suddenly I’ve been inspired, even buying a roll to use for some wedding crafting!
This Valentine’s Day I made two cards using baker’s twine for my little nephew, Blake, and younger cousin, Liam. I was inspired by the XOXO concept of hugs and kisses with the twine separating out the childhood game of tic tac toe.
I know neither of them are old enough to even know that game, nor care that I handmade them a card, but I hope they start to like getting things in the mail, as that is something I personally love!
Happy Valentine’s Day all!
