I really dislike kinks in my baker's twine so I like winding it onto something round. I looked for some cute spools like I see on everyone's blogs but there are no craft stores in our area that sell them. I started using my empty glitter and embossing powder containers until I can locate some spools but now I'm not sure I want them anymore. The empty containers were something I had anyway and I like that they can be repurposed. When I heated the sticker on the top to remove it without tearing it left some sticky residue behind which makes it nice for stacking the containers. If you don't like loose ends just open the lid and tuck the end inside.
