Pretty Lace Holders


Hi everyone,

So when I'm not blogging there are so many other things occupying my time from photographing pretty things to creating new cards.  Lately, I have been printing graphics to turn into holders to organize my lace yardage and twine.

I started with thick pieces of kraft chipboard ...


covered each one with pretty floral paper ...


and began wrapping ...


These holders have about 10 yards of vintage distressed lace on them.


I've been a busy little bee organizing.  It is so much easier working with lace when you can unwrap the size piece you need without digging through a huge pile.  I also had no idea how much I had accumulated until I started gathering it all.

I think they look too pretty to hide away in a drawer.  Don't you think?  I've decided to keep them in this bucket painted with roses.  I love having my trims nice and organized so I can use them in my projects.




Have you been doing any organizing lately?

Today I am joining ...

That's a good idea, I have a box full of bit of lace and ribbons but they are always a mess and tangled.

Deborah Montgomery said...

these are so pretty! what a lovely way to organize your lace, and I agree, they need to be displayed! I think it's easier to be creative when our work rooms are beautifully organized and things are easy to find, too.

Beth Laverty said...

Love this idea. May have to steal it from you!

Carole said...

Hi Donna! Thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment. It has afforded me the opportunity to quickly get to your blog to see your gorgeous lace organization. Absolutely beautiful!! Hugs, Gayle.

Karen said...

Can you please share with me how you cut the thick board. I have a lot of the board you used but wouldn't know how to cut out the pattern. Did you use a pattern and then cut by hand?! That is a lot of work. To finish, they are so beautiful!!! I collect lace for my future retirement and for home decoration!!! It is too pretty to put away hidden in some dark secret place!

Denise said...

Lovely! I think it's a wonderful idea and if I had a collection of lace trim I would do the same.I use it as I buy it,can never seem to get a collection going sad to say.Thank You so much for Your visit.I do need to post again but I've just haven't had the time. Denise

Beatrice Euphemie said...

This is so charming, Donna! I love how you have them displayed in the pretty bucket, too. Hugs xo Karen

Chris said...

Oh. Wow! I wish I had that much lace! I love how you store them!
Beautiful!

Laurie Unger said...

Very pretty and practical. Wish I had that much lace in my ribbon stash!

HELENE said...

Beautiful! And I love the photos of them too!
If I had a similar collection I would love to make this, these days I mainly make my arts and crafts on my computer. I am currently working on transferring 40 DVDs of Photoshop files and original photos over to an eternal 4 TB Touro harddrive I have just bought – that’s my bit of organising, but difficult to add any frilly bits to it :-)

Terry said...

Gorgeous! What a beautiful way to display the lace you've acquired.

Nancy Reinke said...

These are fabulous, Donna! I've got to do this with my lace. Okay, I just popped over here from the link on your WBC studio tour. Now I've got to go back and finish looking at your lovely studio. ~ Nancy
