Baker’s twine and vintage keys

This is what happens when I play around on Etsy too long and find too many things that I can’t resist . . . after a recent trip to Paper Source and an impulse buy of six different colors of baker’s twine – no good reason, I just loved the colors! – I got on Pinterest to see what uses I could possibly find for my new purchase.  Armed with inspiration, I surfed around on Etsy until I found the perfect supplies.  It’s no exaggeration to say you can find just about anything on Etsy!

Baker’s twine comes in an irresistible array of colors:

I picked up another package of colored cording here – no thought as to what I might end of using it for, but if nothing use, I think it will look beautiful against kraft paper for wrapping packages:

Next purchase – a collection of tiny vintage keys:

I used baker’s twine to tie the keys onto my homemade jam – kind of an identifying tag for my jams when I give them as gifts.

I used all six colors of baker’s twine to create tassels for the keys that were too large to use on the jam jars:
