Actually, I am surprised at how easy it is!! Although I will get a sore pinky from trying to squeeze the cr*p out of the tiny thread... but I put some athletic tape on, and that stops me....
Holder: I took a 100 CD spindle, put the foamy things on the bottom then the clear protector on top of that (cuz there's ridges on the bottom, and it helps to elevate it above the lip of the spindle). Then put an empty papertowel holder, so the thread will sit in the middle with no friction when it needs to come of the bottom of the spool ....
I didn't decorate or anything, because I didn't want any marker, or paint to wear off onto the thread. (Everything was in with the CD's except the papertowel tube.)
I have the CD's in the top cover that came with it right now, but once they are used up, I am thinking I can use that to cover the thread... my hooks fit nicely inside the papertowel tube... for safekeeping. That's it... I was pretty proud of myself!
I am not very clever when it comes to that kind of stuff!!
Hope I made sense!
