Well, I'm "shooting myself in the foot" here, but I have to share these. I went into Michael's to see if they had any strips of wood from which I could cut four leaf clover thread holders. I found these, and assorted other shapes, for only 25 cents each! Yes, you heard right - 25 cents each. I bought 8 of them. They had some that were painted, but I wouldn't trust the paint not to come off on the thread. I might decorate mine and then seal them. We'll see. Oh, the butterfly is 3.5" and the flower is 3".
If you don't have a Michael's and want them, let me know and maybe I can get them and send them to you. I don't get out often, but I could have them picked up.
