More upcycling fun!

As many of you know I like visiting my local scrapstore as they often have a wealth of stuff I wouldn't even look at normally. Such an item is these sample books of threads which I think were donated by a local underwear factory (there were lots of lace samples from that factory in at the same time so I am assuming!)

Gorgeous colours aren't they?

Here's what they look like when taken out (and the extra bit of cardboard at the end chopped off) And below is what I am planning on doing with them!

Bright gift tags. What do you think? I've also tried a couple of the threads on a small card and they look really good - simple and clean. Now all I have to do is figure out what to do with the ones that look like this!

Good idea. They look quite eye catching. It's amazing what things can be found and what can be created from them.
