Few Tips and Tricks 💡
- Use a stiff base such as a clipboard.
- You can also anchor your project to a cork board, with the help of a clip
- This way you can leave your work on hold and you’ll have a firm support to work on
- You probably have everything you need at home, just use a folder and a clip like you see in the image, and you’re all set!
- Use tape or washi tape on the ends of your cords to keep them in perfect condition
- Another advantage of doing this is that it keeps your cords in order
- If you use different colored tape on each cord it will help you keep track of which one to use and avoid mistakes.
- Secure the base of your cords with pins to prevent them from getting tangled and bothering you
- This way you’ll have each cord under control.
- Clip the end of the cord with a clothes pin and little by little roll it up around the pin
- You’ll avoid getting your cords tangled up when you are working with several yards of cord and they will all be ready at hand, well organized
- Get a suction cup hook at any home goods store
- You can stick the hook on a window or any other flat surface around your home
- Then you just have to hang the ring of your project on it and start making knots
