Sheep Embroidery Floss Organizer

Homemade Embroidery Floss Organizer

I was inspired by this and my love of playing with shrinky dinks to create this project. I used a sheet of white shrink film. I had it left over from an angel place card/ornament project my niece and I made several years ago.

This was an easy project with cute results.


  • 8 1/2 inch x 11 inch sheet of shrink film (plastic)
  • Permanent marker
  • Exacto knife or other craft knife
  • Scissors
  • Cookie sheet
  • Parchment paper
  • Oven
  • Embroidery floss

Step 1: Use a permanent marker to draw your image and holes for embroidery floss on a piece of shrink film.

Step 2: Use an exacto or craft knife to cut-out holes for embroidery floss.

Step 3: Use scissors to cute around shape.

Step 4: Put shape to be shrunk on a cookie sheet between two pieces of parchment paper.

Step 5: Bake in a 335 degree oven for about 2 – 3 minutes. The shape will curl up and then become flat again. When the shape is flat, it is done. (Follow directions that come with shrink plastic)

    How cute! I collect sheep — dolls and figurines, not live ones.

    That really is cute (and would save loose pieces of floss from ending up in the vaccuum!).
