Sew Organized

One of the essential items for embroidery is floss:

But once these are removed from the package, 
does this happen to you?

 A tangle of thread!

To turn this situation from blah to TADA!, here's my solution:

 I cut small squares out of cardboard.

 Trim them a little bit more so they look like spools.
Then punch a hole on top.

 Mark each cardboard spool with the color code of 
the thread {printed on the slip-on label}.

 Neatly wind the embroidery floss on the corresponding board,
tucking in the ends.

 Finally, insert the spools on a binder ring.

A manageable way to keep thread in their place.
