These little bobbin books are so simple to make yet cost nothing! You could make on in every colour of the rainbow and display them on a nearby windowsill. Or even make a whole collection of them for a friend's birthday.....though to be honest I'd rather keep them for myself!
First, measure the width of the spool (the inside section where the thread was).
Mark the width onto the paper and cut straight down the bottom so that you should have a long strip.
Make sure that the strip fits around the paper and sellotape one end to the bobbin.
Carefully wrap it around and secure with ribbon and ta da! Now have a quick cup of tea and make another for a friend!
