Thread Catchers

I've been wanting to make these for such a long time, but they've slowly been falling down the to do list.  However, Tudy made some the other week and it reminded me to do some.
Martha has a great tutorial, and they are so easy and satisfying to make.

I used 61/2" squares to do mine.
 
These were supposed to have been made last week, as part of the Orange Rainbow Scrap Challenge, but the cut out squares sat waiting until yesterday.  The buttons were found in my button tin, and were the perfect way to finish the points.
 
They were so quick to do, I don't know why I waited so long.

Really cute. I like that you didn't fold that flap down as far as I did on mine. These are so useful and the fold down flat!

I love them, though I have no idea of how they work! Never seen one in Spain. But they are beautiful in themselves, purposes aside. I'd put jewellery in them, or even my keys :)
