Fiber Minder Journal
From the Designer: "Keep track of all your fibers in this fun journal created using yarn, a Sizzix die, matboard, and some #10 envelopes! This Fiber Minder Journal organizes all of your yarn in one spot. Wrap a small yarn sample around the wrapper and tuck it in the envelope pages. On the envelope indicate where and when you purchased the yarn, what project you created with it, dye lots, needle gauge and other useful information."
