A Crafty Gift by Angi Barrs

Hello everyone!  Angi here with a fun tutorial and gift idea using Samantha's adorable fabric and die-cut embellishments.

Baker's twine is a popular trend right now. Here's a way to give "The Gift of Twine" in a fun and unique way.

First you will need the following supplies:

1. A spool of baker's twine. I used the "Honeydew" twine from The Twinery.
2. Samantha Walker "Decadence" fabric - You can find it in the Riley Blake store.
3. Samantha Walker die cuts - You can find the "Heidi" collection die cuts in the Creative Imaginations store.
4. A lollipop stick - (from Michael's Craft Store)
5. Pop dots

Step #1 - Cut a piece of Samantha's fabric - 9 inches long x 2-1/2 inches wide. Wrap it around the center of the spool of twine. Use three pop dots to adhere it.

Step #2 - Add pop dots to the back of your Samantha Walker die-cut embellishments.

Step #3 - Place the die-cuts on top of the fabric. Tie a small piece of baker's twine to the larger tag die-cut embellishment.

Step #4 - Add pop dots to the other die-cuts, then add them to the lollipop stick.

Step#5 - Place the decorated lollipop stick in the center of the spool of twine. Now you are ready to give a crafty gift that will make anyone smile!

I hope you enjoyed my tutorial.

My blog is supported by sponsors and affiliates. If you decide to make a purchase through my affiliate links, I am paid a small commission for it. This doesn’t cost you anything additional. These commissions help to keep the rest of my content free, and allow me to blog more often.

From time to time I make recommendations of products that I love to use, or products that I have designed. Occasionally, manufacturers send me products to play with. They have not obligated me to show them on my blog or review them. I only make positive remarks about those things that I truly love and enjoy to use. Everyone's personal experience with various products may be different, as we all use things in different ways. I am not compensated for these remarks, and merely pass on my opinion to you as a reader. I hope you find my opinions valuable.
