Sewing Notions

Over the summer, the Hubby and I went to many a yard sale and one of the main things I kept my eye out for were sewing notions, especially vintage notions...ya know, wooden spools of thread and such. Thankfully, I found sewing notions, fabric, buttons, and ribbons at every sale we went to. And here is one of my favorites. It's a fabulous box with lovely little drawers filled with treasure. These kinds of things just make me happy.
I want to do something fun and crafty with this old tape measure. Anyone have any ideas or seen anything out there in blog world that I could check out?
