recycled button containers

we decorated some plastic containers at one of patty's classes, and the other day when I was making a bunch of things for a swap, I was using the hemp twine, but it was getting all twisted and took on a life of its own, so I punched a hole in the side of one of our decorated containers, added a grommet/eyelet, then rewound the twine on my fingers. I pulled the inside end (the end I started winding) through the grommet, put the lid on, and could pull out just what I needed to cut. it kept everything clean and orderly, and recycled!
