    I think this is the last of my good ideas for a while. Previously I stored my thread on racks hanging on my walls. Well, it gets dusty and takes up wall space, so I decided I needed to come up with something else.

    I took the photo boxes that you can buy at Michael's or Joann's and cut foam board to fit in the bottom. I then hot glued extra long golf tees to the foam board. But the board in the box and then put the thread and bobbins on the tees.

    One thing I still have left to do is to replace all the hair ties with clear plastic tubing to hold the thread on the bobbin.

    Very creative. I may try this with acrylic so I can see what is in the box. Thanks for sharing.
