important-looking piece of paper.

103.Storing Lace, Trim or Yarn - Wrap them around empty tissue tube. It keeps them untangled and it makes it easier to dispense.

straw to the side arms of the critters. Attach a meter of string to the ends of paper tubes and thread the string through the straws. Add a bead at the end of each string.
