Dyeing Baker's Twine

I was just looking over the Sale-A-Bration Brochure with someone a couple weeks ago and we were trying to figure out how they made the stitched card on page 11. As if they were reading my mind, Stampin' Up! posted a video the day after answering just that question!

The stem and leaf stitched on the card were done with the White Baker's Twine that was dyed with the Lucky Limeade ink refill. Check out the video from Stampin' Up! here.

It's easier than you might think! Here are the instructions from Stampin' Up!

To dye your Baker's Twine, simply create a mixture using rubbing alcohol and any color of our Classic or Craft Stampin' Ink refills. A good starting ratio is one tablespoon of alcohol to one drop of ink refill (you can adjust from there to get the right color intensity for your project). Place the Baker's Twine in the mixture allowing enough time for the dye to fully soak the twine. Lay the dyed twine on a clean paper towel to dry.
