Here's how I made those cute little tabs that are on top of my photos:
Paint some gesso onto the bottom tab. This helps to hold the twine in place as you are winding it around. I also add a dollop of hot glue to the back sometimes to hold the twine down. Then, begin winding the twine around the tab.
Keep wrapping the twine around the tab until it is as full as you like. When you are finished, just glue the twine down on the back and cut off the excess.
