I saw a sale last week for baker's twine and I was tempted to get some but $8.99 per color is still a lot since I want 3 or 4 colors and what do I need a ridiculous amount like 250yds for?! I need like 3 or 4yds! Seriously! This thing Lindsay has come up with is easy, BRILLIANT, scalable, BRILLIANT, color-customizable, and did I mention BRILLIANT?!
