Mini Kite Line Winders

Looking for a winder for your little kite?

Check out these options:

Embroidery floss bobbins

made out of cardboard they are inexpensive and readily available in any sewing or craft store. Cut a little slit on the side to lock the tread in so it can't unwind. For a fancier look glue a Asian style toothpick to it as a handle.

Miniature wood “Traveler” winders

Phantom Star Designs has a miniature version of their wood kite winders. It comes as a card of six winders. Cut them apart with a craft knife Email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it for more information

Miniature spools of thread

often available from discount stores with 25 – 30 spools in a package. Line and winder all in one.

Mcgill Mini File Tab Punch

this punch makes a winder that is slightly larger than floss bobbins, with a little more stylish shape. As with floss bobbins you will want to cut a little slit to keep the end of the thread from unwinding. Having your own punch lets you create winders from a variety of materials. Print a design on heavy card stock and cutout custom winders. Create beautiful one-of-kind winders by recycling magazine covers, photos, business cards or holiday cards. Glue two together to get a stiffer winder if needed.

Tip of the week
Alligator clip tabletop picture holders make a simple helping hand to hold your kite while working.  Put a small piece of folded tag board or heavy paper over the edge of the kite where it slips into the clip to make sure the alligator teeth don't hurt your sail.
