Thread Holder Tutorial

I don't know about you, but I never know how to store my thread.
I don't have hundreds, so I don't need a great big holder.
I have just a few, and want them to look cute!

So, I came up with this idea. I turned the lid of a chocolate box into a holder.
Note: It's best to eat the chocolates first! 
*Unless, like me you are allergic to chocolates and have the sorrow of watching others eat them for you*

I lined the lid with fabric, using double-sided tape to secure it. I then used some more tape to put ribbon round the edges of the fabric.

Then, I pushed tall needles into the thick 'bottom' of the lid to hold the threads and bobbins in place.

So simple!
