Divine Twine by Whisker Graphics










{Reported by Ashley Harris}



I am sure that many of you know that baker's twine is soooo in right now in the crafty world.  There are a few manufacturer's that produce them, but today we are focusing on Divine Twine by Whisker Graphics.   So let's cut to the chase and get to the bottom of it!

What I liked:
-I love that their twine is thin and compact.  With other baker's twine, it is a little too thick and can unravel quickly.
-What great colors they come in!!  So pretty.
-It comes in spools.  I love love love that!  I have had some come wrapped around cards and that just makes the twine kink.  Also I have had some come loose which is almost worse because it can become a knotted mess so easily.



What I didn't like:

Nothing.  There ya go.







What I made:


Supplies:  Cardstock: Bazill Basics OP White; Patterned Paper: Bella Blvd; Twine: Divine Twine





Supplies: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics French Vanilla: Patterned Paper: October Afternoon; Stamps: Papertrey Ink; Ink: Stampin Up!; Rhinestones: Kaisercraft; Twine: Divine Twine





Supplies: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics OP White; Rhinestones: Kaisercraft: Stamps: Hero Arts; Ink: Close To My Heart; Twine: Divine Twine
Technique inspired by Teri Anderson's card in July/August 2011 Paper Crafts issue on pg 53.



Supplies: Bag: Whisker Graphics: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics OP White; Foil: Vintage Street Market; Stamps: Technique Tuesday; Ink: Tsukineko; Adhesive: 3D Foam squares by Scrapbook Adhesives; Twine: Divine Twine





Where and How Much:
Product: Divine Twine
Manufacturer: Whisker Graphics
MSRP: $15.00 per 240 yd spool
Available Online:  Whisker Graphics, Stampington & Company, Two Peas In a Bucket



Bottom Line:  I love this twine!  Truly.  I have tried a few and this is my go to twine.  Just so easy to work with and is the best quality I have seen!

What do you think?  Are you a baker's twine fan?  Let us know!  As for a giveaway, Whisker Graphics is giving away 2 spools of your choice!!  FABULOUS!!  Leave a comment by midnight EST on Tuesday to be entered to win!

ROFL at your response to what you didn't like .. hee hee. This twine looks great, I do use twine -bought two small rolls from a company that I honestly can't remember, and they were sooo drastically faded - way different than what they showed online. So I'm happy to see someone has got it right :) Thanks for the chance to win!
