Bobbin, Bobbin, Bobbins!!!

Hello lovely people!

I hope you are all well?  I have been raiding my gran's sewing box for her bobbins!  I love old bobbins they are sooo much nicer than today's ones.  The have beautiful labels and most are wooden.

I ended up with about 25 of them and some other pretty vintage bits of sewing ephemera. 

 I would really like to display them in a box frame but I can't find one deep enough for them!  I bought one from ikea thinking it would do, even spray painted it, then realised that they didn't fit!

Then I thought I could maybe staple a bit of material behind it but then I wouldn't be able to hang it up :(  So frustrating...

So they are back in their bag until I can decide what to do with them or if I see a good frame for them.
