I love this idea for making crafty twist ties. I have seen gifts tied together with ribbon before, but a decorative twist tie seems an easy way to fasten and unfasten a gift. Making them make take a little time, but then they can be put in your gift wrapping stash. Another idea would be to use them to tie together electrical cords that are left in sight to make them a little more sightly. How else could you use them?
