How to store thread

Isabella and Tracee put up the question on how to store thread that is not in big length.
This is how I store mine.

When I've eaten this lovely mint chocolate there's a handy piece of cardboard inside.
I punch some holes on one long side and attach my thread lengths in the holes.
And write the numbers beside the holes.


You got me there, I've already eaten two of these.

I knew there was a reason why we had to eat chocolates. I need to find some that have cardboard inside now :)
