Keep those threads from Knotting!
I needed a way to keep my threads so I could easily cut the amount i wanted and not end up with a tangled mess. I remembered seeing a great way to solve this here:

  • Step 1

    Go out and buy your threads. I bought mine at Michael's for about 4 bucks. Get some card stock while you are at it! Or any thick paper that your printer will be able to print on.

    Print out the little designs from the website and start cutting!! ::snip snip::
    I used a large hole punch for the sides where i was going to wind the thread around. You can just cut indents if you dont have a large hole punch.

    This is where it can get tricky, It took a lot of undoing knots until I got it right. I took the paper sleeve off my threads then open up the threads so you end up with a large loop of thread and slip it on your wrist. now take a little card and start winding! This keeps all the thread from tangling, (it still may get knots, GO SLOW)

    Now put all your little threaded cards together and admire them! This makes it easy to cut and use. =)

I have something like that. But I hate to wrap them because the thread something gets tangled and I want to throw it out the window! But they do look nice and neat and pretty!

Those are to pretty. I hate the ones you can buy in the store their always so ugly and you cant write on them >.> I like to write the colour of the thread number so I know what it is when I run out
