Tutorial - Swirly Twine Spirals

Here's a quick and easy tutorial on how to make Twine Circles!

All you need is some cardstock, adhesive and twine!

First cut out any size circle from the cardstock.
Any size will work, although I find the larger the circle the easier they are to make.

Cover one side of the circle entirely with adhesive.
Any adhesive will work, whichever you prefer. I used my ATG, it was sticky and held the twine really well and didn't come off on my fingers.
Place the end of the twine in the center.
Eyeball it, it doesn't have to be perfect ;)
Start spiraling the twine around on itself, working out towards the edges.
The first couple twists are a bit fiddly until you get a good circle established, but then it's smooth sailing after that!
When you reach the edge of the circle, cut twine and trim any excess cardstock
Tah-Dah! a super cute twine circle spirally thing!
