Organizing Embroidery Floss

It is important to have a wide variety of colors when doing embroidery. However, that many spools of floss can easily become tangled and disorganized. This is a guide to organizing embroidery floss.

I found this container full of yarn floss, but no cards to wrap the floss around. I had these earring cards in my stash (that is why it is good not to throw things away) and not wanting to go out and spend any more money, I decided to use these instead. The flaps that hold the earring hooks make excellent holders to wrap the yarn around and secure.

If you had extra earring cards, this would be a great use of them. Thumbs up! I love tips that use things that would otherwise be thrown away. Great!:)

My embroidery supplies always ended up in a tangled mess stuffed in a shoe box somewhere. Until I noticed the flat, little plastic thingies for sale at the craft store to wind your floss around. Then I noticed the price. Puh-leeze!

Here is a use for an old Velveeta box and lid. Cut thin pieces of cardboard slightly smaller then the width of the Velveeta box. Wrap embroidery floss around the cardboard and store in the box. Makes it easy to organize colors.

When I was growing up; my mother would use her old thread spools to wind her embroidery floss. It hooked in the small slit for regular thread and it was stored along with all threads.
