I bought them with the intention of adding some fun twine and selling them. I saw them on etsy and they were cute. but bakers twine was a little expensive. Then this great site called Pick Your Plum came into my life (if you don't know what it is go check it out right now!) and they have a "daily deal". One day the deal was bakers twine...YEAH!! So I bought this...
And faster than you can say " I stole this idea off of Etsy" I made these
Cute but still seemed to be missing something. So I pulled out my trusty scrapbook paper that hasn't been used for actual scrapbooking in 6 years and cut these out
If I was a cool kid I would have had a fancy machine or at the very least a paper punch to cut these suckers out, but since I am neither cool nor a kid I had to cut them out by hand. It was worth it though when I slapped some glue on, stuck it on the end of the spool and walla..how cute are these???
Even cuter stacked in a pyramid or thrown in a yellow bowl! It may even be Pinterest cute! Well they are headed to the booth tomorrow so hopefully someone besides me thinks they are cute.
Next post, some new thrifty finds, I promise :)
