Gilding Storage + GIVEAWAY
You’ve probably read and seen a lot about storage options, especially from Jennifer McGuire’s videos and blog. When I first started collecting sequins, I bought this CraftMates 28-Compartment Caddy for about $6. Unfortunately, I did not realize that it was about to get super popular with all the crafters and eventually more than doubled in price and finally was discontinued. Insert sad face for always being late to the party. So I waited and, with my sequin and bead and confetti collection growing, waited some more. All of the gilding was still in the original plastic packaging so whenever I crafted, I would have to dig through bags to find the colors I needed. When I received The Ton’s latest beautiful beads, I knew I had to invest in something. I had seen the Darice 82-piece Tiny Container Storage Tray around for a while but did not want to invest in it for $30-something at the time. Then I saw a friend post about it in the Facebook Stamp Junkies Group and that pretty much enabled me into finally purchasing it. I started with one to test it out. I filled it up with all the seed and bugle beads.
Also, I wanted to share how I am storing my embossing powders now. I bought this cool coffee pod tray and look – it fits all my embossing powders except for Zing! I still have to do samples and improve on my organization but it’s coming together slowly. 🙂
I have one of these CraftMates Lockables to giveaway to a lucky commenter.
