I’ve got a few big projects coming up in my to-stitch pile and I was thinking of making some floss tags like this to help keep me from making a mess. I used a floss box last time I did a big project (think HAED) but I didn’t like the whole winding and unwinding of bobbins.
So the idea of using tags really appealed to me since this is already how I store my specialty threads. I have two big binder style rings that I keep over-dyed and extra special threads on.
Annette posted a quick tutorial on her blog (Annette’s Acre) about how she made her own floss tags since they weren’t readily available for her to purchase. It’s a quick and easy solution using some card stock and hole punches that I’m sure you’ll like.
