One of the signs of progress on a project is using up yarn. Here are some ideas for things to do with the yarn labels once you are done.
1. Yarn Label Box – I have a small photo box where I keep yarn labels from yarn I’ve used up. It’s neat to go through it sometimes and remember all those pretty skeins.
2. Scrapbook Album – Keep one label from each type of yarn used and put it in a scrapbook next to a picture of the item made with it. Not only will you be able to double-check care instructions for different projects, but it will be a wonderful memory book of your crafting to pass down the family.
3. Decoupage – Pay homage to your yarn crafting by using the yarn labels to decoupage a tray or jewelry box.
4. Trash – Yes, throwing the labels away is still a possibility. Especially if displaying them all will show your spouse exactly how much you have been spending on yarn.
Great topic to bring up! I’d love to see some crafts made with upcycled yarn labels!
Thanks. It occured to me last night that you could even decoupage a bangle or stiffen the label to make a bracelet.
