A Flower for All Seasons Twine Lace/ Color Throwdown #125


When I took a look at the colors for Color Throwdown's 125th Challenge on Wednesday, the first thing that came to mind was "twine laces". I'm not sure why, but I try not to argue when this just pop into my head that way. It did make me flash back to a card a made a good while back which totally frustrated folks in class. Lacing twine was not their favorite! So, my goal was to create "no fuss" lacing with twine & I managed it! First, I created the holes using my Paper Piercer and the guide from the Mat Pack. This gave me perfectly spaced holes without any bother. Then, I cut my twine at an angle and, most importantly, added just a little glue. This kept the twine from unraveling or getting stuck as I went through the holes. At that point the lacing was a cinch. So, keep an open mind when this little guy appears at class. Give lacing another, much easier, shot!
