I saw some of the cutest twist ties at the craft store last week.
I decided it would be simple enough to make DIY twist ties.
So I gathered my supplies and got to work (I had everything on hand so they were free.)
I cut the paper 4 3/4″ long and a little over 1/4″ wide.
I used 26 gauge wire and cut it the same length as the paper.
Then I stuck double sided tape to the back side of the paper and peeled the protective cover off.
I stuck the wire to the tape.
Edited: The tape I used is Terrifically Tacky Tape (it’s on a roll) by Provo Craft. You can find it on-line and in most craft stores. It comes thin so it doesn’t have to be cut.
Then put the other paper on top.
I love this tape. It’s mega sticky.
Aren’t they fun? I love how they turned out.
You can make them out of any paper for any occasion.
I’m going to be making dozens of these for gift giving. Are you going to try your hand at DIY twist ties?
