Don't buy wire for projects if you have these

Old and no longer needed except by ME !

I cut off the ends and cut the rubber a little with my quick unpick.  Then I held the wire with one hand and the cut rubber with the other and pulled slowly.  The wire cut through the rubber when I pulled revealing the very useful wire inside

This is a very old pair of pinking shears I now only use for paper.  I cut a few cardboard shapes with the pinking shears to wrap my wire

Recycled wire now wrapped and ready to use for my wire projects


  1. Very clever as always Marion - when are you going to do a book?

  2. Clever idea!
    Thanks for sharing.

  3. Another useful tip.... fab. xx

  4. Thank you for your comments Chrissy, Leah, Sue and Jo. My Husband is finding the wire useful ! He is using it more than me !
