it just goes to show you…

linen-thread-holder-web.jpg…that you can alter almost anything if you put your mind to it. Truth be told, I needed a better system for my linen thread. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve lost that small flat piece of cardstock. Besides, my hands just aren’t that nimble to unwind and unwind that skinny little thread when I am working on larger projects.

The solution came to me when I ran out of floss the other day. I noticed that the container comes apart easily and the floss is about the same size as the linen thread. Eureka! A solution to my linen thread problem. Of course, I had to alter the container…

I used some leftover papers from an altered band-aid tin and tag project I made at one of my past downline meetings. That was a fun and very easy project too! Can you tell how much I like to alter things?
