Inspiration from the Blogosphere.....

I am always on the lookout for ideas to put my fabulous twine from The Twinery to use.  It is one of my favourite finishing touches on my projects!!

I came across this tutorial on The Twinery's blog and had to share it here!

Twine Pansy Tutorial

Step 1: Choose your favorite Twinery shade...our NEW favorite is their Honeydew!!!
Be sure to cut a large enough piece of twine - I find if you wrap the twine around the item at least 4 times, that's usually plenty.

Step 2: Start as if you were wrapping a gift, wrapping the twine around the middle, then crossing it on the back, continuing around the opposite sides to meet in the front again.

Step 3: When meeting the two ends in the front, tuck them under the twine that lays vertically across the middle...see photo.

Step 4: Tie a simple "half" square knot & pull tight.

Step 5: Tie a standard bow pulling tight to secure loops.

Step 6: Repeat Step 5 two more times but this time be careful not to pull too tightly (which will unravel the previous bows).

Step 7: Trim ends and VOILA, there you have it. A sweet little package that's Pretty as a Pansy!

Want to try your hand at making your own?!?! 

Pop into the store to pick up some of this yummy twine!
