Organize and Admire
Your Mini-hank Collection
Our household clutter busting rule for craft materials is - if mom doesn't use it in a year - then the kids get it.
The three exceptions are: my rubber stamps, full sheets of scrapbook paper, and charity yarn.
and the fourth exception is my reference collection of mini-hanks.
Here are photos of two recycled tea boxes full of yarn.
Each hank is tagged with the dye formula, and a brief note which could be: what project it was dyed for, a color name, or the type of yarn.
I also have a scrap of each yarn stored in a ring binder (linky).
The tea boxes stack nicely. The yarn is light weight, so I bet I could get quite a pile before the bottom bunches get crushed.
Previously, my kids made small Polly houses out of the boxes. This was before I realized what a valuable asset I was giving away.
As my tea boxes are overstuffed, I am considering repossessing their boxes, except..... my yarn will stick out the Polly doors and windows cut into the sides of the boxes.
HMMMM, tea makes a good Christmas gift.... think folks would be upset to receive a handful of teabags without a box?
