I make mine into puffs. I also do it OUTSIDE. LOL and usually am covered in feathers after I'm done. I just take a strand and glue the ends together, watch it though
I usually don't have much in the way of fingerprints when I'm done. Someone might have a better method though. Once they're in puffs you can put them in your bows, onto clippies etc. I just store mine in a rubbermaid container.
