This Irish Waxed Linen Thread, from Crawford Threads Ltd., Belfast Ireland, is also known as "Waxy Flax". This Irish Waxed Linen is 4-ply and comes in an assortment of 20 colors. You will receive 2 yards of each of the 20 different shades of waxed linen, along with a free package of assorted beads. That way you can start using the thread as soon as you receive it. The 4-ply waxed linen is perfect for threading beads of all sizes, charms and many other embellishments.
HERE ARE JUST SOME OF THE EXAMPLES FOR THE USES OF THE WAXED THREAD:
FOR ARTIST TRADING CARDS: My favorite use is wrapping the thread around my Artist Trading Card or thread it around the ATC corners after punching the corners with the Creative Corners Punch. (this punch can be found under the Punches Catagory) Punching holes with a hand punch thread linen.
FOR TAGS: Thread linen and fibers through an eyelet at the top of a tag and attached beads to dangle down. Also, thread and knot the linen, putting one bead between each knot. I usually knot every inch.
FOR CARDS: Wrap the linen around the inside of the card and knot it on the outside of the card. You can also tie and make a bow. I like to tie and add beads to dangle down that coordinate with my color theme.
