|Wild Embroidery Thread|
First I need to explain that I go as cheaply as possible in organizing my (our) craft supplies. But I still want a pretty, organized, inspirational, craft room. I had looked at the stores and online to see what I could do and there were all kinds of nifty things out there, that I could not afford. So I turned to my trusty 3"x5" index cards. I am a firm believer in index cards, I have panic attacks if I am out!
3"x5" index card
I folded it in half, short end to short end.
I cut on the indicated lines.
Then folded the flaps inwards. I didn't cut them off as I felt it gave it more stability.
Wrap your embroidery thread around the center. I also added the color information and brand, etc.
I included any washing instructions on the "back" and cut a small slit at the top to secure the end.
And WOOT! I have beautifully tamed embroidery thread that I can easily see. Once all of it is finished I will organize it by color.
I will tell you about my containers in the next post!
Love to all,
