I am creating new small embroidery treasure boxes (http://www.flickr.com/photos/marielynn/3612126226/) and I have been looking for shapes that can naturally become floss bobbins. Okay maybe the Henna Hands and Feet is a bit much but it works nonetheless. Each one contains 18 inches of 6 strand cotton thread.

Oooo! Perfect for a travel craft/embroidery kit. Or, with thread, for a sewing kit!

Really awesome idea!

I really need to make floss bobbins. My floss is a tangled mess. I do like the henna hands, best. I bet it makes you smile when you use them. Are they cardstock or plastic?
