I am so bragging about this!!

20 Aug

I just started using Twine and dearly love it!  I got the sampler pack from THE  TWINERY, thanks to a tip from one of their DT members, Monika.

All my colors came neatly in little bundles, like this one here.

Try as I might to find the end to some of them, after using one time, my neat bundles all looked like this!!

Argh!!  DISASTER!!!  KNOTS everywhere!!!  So I looked online for some solutions and found one and I made my own version.

These are little Stak n Store containers from my local Ben Franklin.

I’m not scared of a drill, so I took out that puppy and drilled holes down the sides.

After I did that, I made custom bobbins and put an anchor inside each container and now look what I have!

MINI TWINE DISPENSERS!!  Am I genius or what?

Sorry, I am just soooo excited about these!

Ok, go back to your weekend..I just had to brag!  Thanks for stopping by!

    Total genius! I love this idea! I just bought a bunch of twine too, and it always tends to tangle very easily. I will have to give this a try. TFS!
