So excited to introduce you to Mandi from Debonair Bandit! She has a sweet tutorial to share. I hope you'll check out her blog and connect with her through twitter.


Hello Lovely readers of Along for the Ride! I am Mandi and I blog over at {Debonair Bandit}. I am a stay at home momma too two little girls {Chloe, 2 and Carli 8 months}. I have a wonderful husband whom I've shared my life with for almost 7 years. I am a full time student working on my accounting degree, and I love love creating and crafts. I am also CHEAP. Yes, I said it. If I love something, I will immediately try to figure out how I can make it myself, so I don't have to spend so much money to buy it else where. Today I will be sharing a tutorial for DIY bakers twine. I am opeing my own etsy shop {I hope you will visit Here when I open June 1st}, and I was thinking about how I was going to wrap my products before sending them out . Now I am obsessed with bakers twine, but spending $6 for so little twine, I decided that I could make my own. Here's how I did that.
