Boxes for perle coton balls

I have had a few comments regarding  perle coton boxes I have made.   I use them all the time.  They are made with index cards and ribbons.   I use these boxes to keep the perle coton balls from rolling around, to easily pull fiber off the core, and to save the label!  

And there is a link in the sidebar.


Since my posts about the perle coton boxes, I had been asked about template(s) directions & instructions.  The index cards can be plain, or stamped with motifs.  CLICK ON IMAGE TO ENLARGE I'm really not good at explaining so, I took apart a box & will try to show how I create boxes I start with a 4" x 6" card (index card, card stock, light weight cardboard Decorate - or leave plain Cut 4 slits & Fold Attach label to ends of box -- double sided tape, glue, whatever is on hand Use Paper punch where you want your ribbons Ribbon should be 18-19" & secure the perle coton balls in place Not too tight or they will not roll easily when fiber end is pulled I use a bodkin & two colors of ribbon Thread thru the box & perle coton balls Use 2nd ribbon and repeat on the other side Bows on the ends over labels You can also make a box for one perle coton ball.  Adjust the size.

Ground Hog Day !

Link to Pattern



Will the groundhog see a shadow, six more weeks of winter?    Will the sky be overcast, and the groundhog not see a shadow, early spring?
