Default Another Bobbin Holder

Bobbins fit into toe separators(used for pedicures) that can be purchased at drugstores, Walmart, or just about anyplace that carries nail polish. Store them in a zip-lock bag.

I like your hint. Thanks. Drill a hole at the top and you could hang it on the wall. Decoupage bitty bits of fabric to make it a decorator item and then hot glue the magnetic strip on to the paint stick. Hmmm lots of ideas humming in my head.

I put red nailpolish on my plastic bobbins in case I drop one I can find it. Much easier to find as they are plastic
