I cut a small rectangle of paper, the thinnest sides thin enough to slip through the eye of the needle. Like this:

=======

Fold the paper in half lengthwise, place the end of the floss inside of the folded paper.

------====

Slip the paper through the eye of the needle and the thread goes through with it.

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

That's a really clever idea. Sometimes I use a little piece of tape on the floss and thread it through. I think Clover makes some sturdier ones.

I use a self-threading needle. Makes life easer, and they aren't flimsy or break easily either.
