It is one of this year's trendy items, and lots of fun to play with. I use baker's twine from The Twinery. You can browse their site by using the link provided. The Twinery just came out with four new colours to add to the existing fourteen. Close to My Heart also came out with four coordinating colours in the latest catalogue (you can shop it here), and Paper Wishes sells the version by "W R Memory Keepers."

This also works well if you want to use the twine for lettering. The glue prevents the ends from fraying too much.
On this companion page, I used the twine to outline my journalling box. I hid the free ends under one of the loops, but you could also just poke a hole into your paper and thread the free end to the back of your project.
This page also shows those chipboard circles from the Elements paper pack coordinating shapes, which i have used to draw attention to the surf-seeking teenagers.
This sunny shape is another chipboard piece which details the where, when and what of the photo.
