Baker’s Twine Storage

Baker’s twine is all the rage right now, and I have to admit I’ve started my own little collection! 
My problem was trying to figure out how to store it. 
I wanted something that made it easy to access but wouldn’t be in my way. 
Here’s what I came up with! 
Have you seen those cute little grab & go Pringles containers? 
Not only are they only $1 each, they are the perfect size to stash in my desk at work. ;)
But do you know what they have in common with twine?

They are roughly the same size!
Perfect for storing my twine!
First things first, in order to feel comfortable putting my twine in the Pringles containers 
I washed them thoroughly.
Then… 
1. Using a Dremel, I drilled small holes in the center of the lids. You can sand the edges if you think they are too rough and may snag your twine.
2. Cover the containers with some fun scrapbook paper using Mod Podge.
3. If you’re concerned about residual oil from the potato chips that might not have gotten washed out, line the interior of the container with freezer or wax paper.
4. Drop your twines into the containers and thread the twine through the holes in the lid.
5. To keep my containers together, I tied a wide black ribbon around them.
The twine can be stored on its side or upright, however you prefer. 
The lids snap on fairly tightly so they aren’t going to pop off when you pull on the twine. And the twine itself is heavy enough that you won’t be dragging the containers around as you pull on the twine.
Easy peasy and cute to boot!

    Hi! I just stumbled on this from Jen at TT&J and I’m pinning this. Seriously, bakers twine is my new obsession and I love your upcycle. Now I have a reason to eat a bunch of pringles too. Thanks for sharing.

    Great idea…and they look really nice. I might give this a try with some old scotch containers that I’ve kept around knowing they’d be good for something!
