Make your own lace card spool from cereal boxes, make them big or small.

Or you make them as a ribbon spool holder to tidy up your storage bin. If you use the inside of the cereal box, you get a nice-looking finish. Glue on tea dyed paper and stamp your favourite design on top.

Packaging ideas put one or two in with the next happy mail you send out, with a precious piece of vintage lace just enough to sew down one page.
