organizing weaving supplies

Weaving can be a very chaotic medium to teach if you aren't organized.
So here is one of my organization tricks.

You'll need:
A few empty paper towel rolls.
Piece of construction paper.

Cut the paper towel rolls in half.
Stand them up vertically and tape them together.
Tape the piece of construction paper to the bottom and sides of the rolls.
These are my favorite way to organize the weaving strips.
I like to have a few of these on hand so I can put different size strips in them.
Easy storage.


  1. Oh my goodness I LOVE this! Why didn't this occur to me a zillion years ago? Pinning!! thank you!

  2. Cool idea, and goodness knows I have plenty of paper towel rolls!!!!

  3. I came over from Pinterest and am in love with your blog! I am a second year art teacher and am always trying to find ways to organize. This is just great!

    1. Aw, thanks Megan! That means so much to me!!

  4. Starting a paper weave next week and love this. Our janitors save paper tubes for me...the tubes from our paper towel dispensers are very sturdy and shorter than those that come from commercial roles. Will be making these this weekend.
