I am of the "thread snipper" camp . . . . . it was drilled into me hard in home ec class. ;o) but other than that I think this is perfectly lovely! I think it would make a sweet backdrop for photo. I like the idea of putting it "in" a vintage typewriter as part of the shot. I also think it would be awesome to cut into 3 x 4 project life type cards and collage them. I can't wait to try this.
