This is an entry for the Copy Cat Challenge and Maker Mom's contest. Bakers twine is used  for embellishing all kinds of things. It is rather expensive in my opinion so I decided to try something different. Follow through and I will show you how easy it is.

Soap.

Baling twine is what farmers use to bale hay into bundles.  http://www.bridoncordage.com/history_twine.html
I got mine from a friend of mine who owns cows. Some farmers still use baling wire but not very many.

That was easy wasn't it? Now take the twine and embellish something beautiful! This version is heavier than cotton and more difficult to tie into a bow. The tie can be glued or taped to hold the shape. There are many good uses for this type of twine.
