My Twined-Up Tape-Runner

Karen N here from Craftily Yours.  SO excited to be posting my very first Twine-ista post.  I am so honored to be listed there (-->) on the sidebar with those incredibly talented and crafty gals. 

I'm a tape-runner addict.  I love that thing.  The problem is that I set it down, and it disappears under the rubble that is my craft desk, even though it's HUGE and BRIGHT pink.  I asked my DH to make me a new tape-runner holder. It's my fabulous something new, fitting into this month's theme! 

Matt got a couple of pieces of scrap wood and fashioned me what you see below which I, of course, twined up with gorgeous Timeless Twine in Olive Green.


Isn't she perrrrrrrty?!  Here's a close-up of this fabulous twine tied in a triple bow...


And finally, the tape-runner holder in action!  Love <3




Thanks for stopping by today!  You need YOU some new too!  Like, say, some new Timeless Twine?  Get ready, get set........GO shop!  :)

Craftily and twine-tastically yours,

Karen

This is awesome Karen! You did great, its your first post which is exciting! I would have so many things for my hubs to make me if he did those kinds of things. I guess we know why he doesnt right! ;)

This is great, mine always seems to be hiding under a pile of ruble on my desk as well. I love the bright fun colors you used,
Is the paper from a Cricut imagine cartridge!?

Cute and smart! I'm always picking my tape runner up and finding all sorts of bits stuck to it. Great work Karen!

This is fabulous!! I love the color and the green twine is perfect!!! I too have a glue runner (ok mine is a little smaller... LOL) but I agree it needs a home and this is perfect!!!!

Very FUN! I love that your tape runner has it's own home. Lucky you, having a hubby that could make it for you!
