Welcome To My Scrapbook Room

Hello and welcome to my scrapbook room.  Today I thought I would show you these really neat wooded pegs that my husband made me to wrap my twine around. 


This is what one looks like empty.  He just glued two short pieces of wood to a longer piece of wood and drilled a hole in one end.  I spray painted them white.
And here they are filled with twine (I mod podge the name of the twine on to the bottom)
And here they are hung up on the door to my ikea cabinet

Hi, I wanted to come and amend this post.  Look at this new twine!

It's Halloween Twine!  So Cute!  And here is the new Trendy Twine
Go to http://craftspotbykimberly.blogspot.com/2011/08/seven-new-colors-of-bakers-twine.html?showComment=1312763854608 Craft Spot has all of this twine listed for a really good price!  I am going to buy some!  If you go buy some, tell her Christine America Real sent you and have a great day!

  8. Great idea. I won 2 $15 gift certificates from My craft Spot and got some twine both times. Wished I had waited on last one and would have liked the new that includes the Halloween colors. May have to buy.

  9. Hi Gals,

    The spools are 7 inches long and 2 inches across (where the twine goes) I had him make the base big enough that I could paste the name of each color twine on the base. I really like Kim's twine because she sell "just enough" of each color for your card making needs and she is so nice! If you buy from Kim, please tell her "Chriss America Real sent you" oh and please notice that she has a place where you can order your whatever colors you want, that is so cool!

"When the trees their summer splendor
Change to raiment red and gold,
When the summer moon turns mellow,
And the nights are getting cold;
When the squirrels hide their acorns,
And the woodchucks disappear;
Then we know that it is autumn,
Loveliest season of the year."
- Carol L. Riser, Autumn
