DIY Twine Embellishments

I saw a couple of cute embellishments at the scrapbook store last time, but I thought to myself, I could make something like that myself! Without shelling out $4 for it! One of the embellishments was a package of these twine flowers from Jillibean Soup:

Jillibean Soup Natural Bean Blossoms

I also recalled seeing something similar here on the The Twinery blog:
Twine Flowers 1.3

So I took a stab at doing it myself and here are the results:


Summery colors!

Black and red!

1. Start out with a punched circle for the base.
2. Mark the center of the circle for the starting point of the twine.
3. Cover circle with double-sided tape.
4. Wind twine around in a circle, starting in the center.
5. Secure end with a bit of glue. I used Matte Accents and that seems to be holding well.


  1. That is seriously awesome. My friend just purchased the Jillybean embellishments that you have pictured. I have devine twine too (and love it) and it didn't occur to me!
