Twine Storage

Hooray! I think I've got a 
great way to store 

Timeless Twine is Sweet Stamp Shop's
GO-TO twine... they come in the perfect 160yd
spools... which is just enough to have LOTS but, 
not so much that you think, What the heck am I 
ever going to do with all this twine?!?

The storage solution I came up with is 
great for the home crafter and *perfect* for 
craft teachers... check out how I store 
my collection of TImeless Twine! 

I went to ikea and bought the silver cylinders 
that are originally meant for kitchen utensils. 
They were $2.99 each

I fit FOUR spools of twine in each! Perfectly!

The twine comes out of the holes and you 
can pull out however much you need with 
total ease! 

I typed out and printed the colors from my computer and
backed the labels with magnets... 

Magnets? You ask.. why not just use your nifty label 
maker? ... Here is why... 

I like to take only certain colors for teaching classes
or to a crop... b/c I magnetized them... I can switch around
the spools and take whatever mixture I want! 


Timeless Twine has 15 different colors on spools... 
but, I have it on good authority more colors are coming! 

So, I was sure to buy a couple extra cylinders! 

Love this storage!

Do you have any storage solutions that are 
*sweet* genius?!?!

Please share!! 

I love organizing *almost* as much as I love 

Don't forget to visit Timeless Twine and say hi!

  3. GREAT storage clever!

  5. Great idea Nicole. I can't wait for my trip to Chicago to go to ikea. I've seen so many great ideas with storage stuff from there lately!

  6. This is excellent idea
    wish i would have thought of I use
    parmesean Cheese Glass container and 1 spool fits in each
    and can pull out as you like and see the colors

  8. Love the idea. I want to try with ribbon. Have been trying to find a solution to lots of ribbon and not a lot of space. Magnetic tags also great idea. Someone showed this to me. I will be passing on to my scrappy friends. Will be back to visit blog more often. :)

  9. Great idea, and I love the magnets for the labels -- wonderfully cost effective and travel concious!

    COming back to see what else you dream up to share!!
