THREAD BOX

Hi this is my new craft work, box for keeping threads. 


If we arrange these threads in the following way we can find out the required  thread without opening that box. All things used here are waste things only.
1. Sweet box
2. Pins
3. Thermocole sheet
4. Glass sheet

PROCEDURE:

clean the sweet box. Since we have to use this box for storing threads, wipe out oil from this box.


2.Cut thermocole sheet into a required size piece and stick it in the box as in the picture and Next fix all those pins in a required interval for keeping threads in between them. Then leave some space around the upper portion and cut its inner portion using a sharp knife and remove it.

3.Next stick a glass sheet over the portion which we already removed. We should stick it in the wrong side of the upper portion.


4.Now it looks like this…………


5.Then arrange our threads as our wish. 

Our thread box is ready to use.

I use these boxes for keeping red family and green family threads separately.
