You can make your own spools for storage and crafts. They are so pretty as either. Here are two I saw on Pinterest recently.
It hit me as I was looking at an email from Alpha Stamps on Sunday morning and saw one of their products was a spool. It looked just like two discs and a toilet paper tube. So that’s what I used to make mine! I grabbed three discarded toilet paper cardboard tubes and looked around for something that would work for the size of the end caps. I wound up using the top off of some old candle jars that I repurposed in my craft room.
The lid turned out to be the perfect size. So pulling out some cardboard I had in my supplies, I just traced the lid on it and cut them out. Two for each tube.
I used Aleene’s Craft Glue and glued a tube down on one disc. Let that dry and then did the other end. Once that dries, you are all set to use it however you choose.
While the glue was drying, I took that time to wrap some of my crinkled seam binding around some clothes pins to neaten that up a bit, too.
I decided to use these three spools to wrap lace and trim around.
In retrospect, if I did want to add some pretty papers to the discs, I think the best time to do that would be prior to gluing on the toilet paper roll tube.
Now I need to make some more to corral some of my other trims and laces!
