Twine Storage Idea

Good Morning Friends! It's a little overcast and rainy here on this Father's Day. Hopefully we can still grill out. My DH loves his grilled brats:-) I thought I would take a moment to share with you how I store my baker's twine. You might already do this or have another way. If so, feel free to share your twine storage tip:-)

What I did was buy a pack of tags at Office Depot. They come in all sizes. I used to alter them but haven't in awhile so I have quite a few on hand. When I started purchasing bakers twine from The Twinery, it came like this:

I took the label off carefully and adhered it to the bottom of the tag. I then clipped the top "corner" and the side towards the middle (didn't show up in the pic, sorry). I slid one end of the twine in the side slot and wrapped it around the tag until I got to the end. I then slipped the end into the "corner slot so it would come unraveled.

While I was winding the twine it reminded me of all of the DMC cross-stich floss I used to wind and how I need to get working on my baby's announcement! Ugh! I need more hours in a day! Have a wonderful Father's Day. Thanks for stopping by!

I forgot the most important part:-/ I put my twine on an O ring (not sure if that's what they're called). Or you might want to hang them from a dowel rod.
