Baker's Twine Bookmark Tutorial |

Above all other hobbies and pastimes, I do love a good craft project. It's not uncommon for me to pick up random supplies while I'm out and about with the girls. It's also not uncommon for them to ask me, "Mommy, what are we going to make with that?" 
Most times, I reply with an "I don't know...yet."

I'm guessing that you could still construct these baker's twine bookmarks with the smaller Popsicle sized wooden craft stick, but I had this size on hand from a recent hobby store shopping spree and they seemed to be the perfect size for my bookmarks.

  • baker's twine from The Twinery
  • wooden craft sticks
  • washi tape, I used wider than usual rolls
  • Crop-o-Dile
  • assorted craft beads

After decorating the wooden craft sticks with washi tape, use your Crop-o-Dile to punch a hole in one end. Choose your favorite shades of baker's twine and go crazy. I used three different methods to attach the twine, so get creative.

Feel free to add beads or buttons or sequins, or...well, you get the idea.

If you happen to use a standard width washi tape, you may have to use two rows of washi tape to cover the larger wooden craft sticks. The Popsicle size craft sticks would easily be covered with just one row of the standard width washi tape.

My Mama always told me that presentation makes all the difference. And who doesn't adore a smartly wrapped gift?

I happened to have a gold sparkled washi tape on hand and it was so utterly perfect for the Gold Shimmer baker's twine that I knew I wanted to incorporate the bookmark idea into a packaging idea.

Because the gold sparkled washi tape was just a standard size width, I had to run two rows of washi tape to completely cover the craft stick. Then I punched holes on both ends of the stick, strung the baker's twine through both holes and wrapped it around my gift box.

  1. I love the wrapped package. You have the best ideas!

    1. The package was just an afterthought and I love it the best, Kimberly. I want to make more of them so that I'll have them ready for last minute packages!
