Brown Paper Packages Tied Up With Strings

Several weeks ago an unexpected package arrived at my door. When I opened it I was ecstatic - a huge spool of bakers twine!

A dear friend surprised me with it & included a note:

I bought a bunch of bakers twine. I added on a spool just for you because I knew that of all the people in the world, perhaps only you would smile endlessly about 5 million yards of red and white string.

She was so right! I kept telling people about the twine & was very excited about it. I decided it needed to be used to wrap Christmas gifts. And, I thought brown paper would make the perfect wrapping paper - I also found a can of gift tags that go quite well with everything.

Now, what to do with the rest of the twine?

How great do they look!
I wanted to do brown paper this year and no where around here had any in stock! Which I found annoying and strange all at once.
