Bead Organization

That is a little container that I made to store my daughters beads.  Earlier this month I had a night home without my family.  I am not sure that has ever happened before.  At first I thought it would be a wonderful time to sew.  In reality, I organized.  I spent hours going through cupboards and closets, moving things to the garbage and to donation piles.  It was a productive day.

While I was cleaning out the craft area I came accross this
My daughter recieved this bead kit on her birthday.  She had a few other beads too.  While this is very cute, if you are not using all of your beads it does not store well.  I tried to think of what I had and what I could use to store her beads.  I finally decided to make some envelopes for them.

I used plastic that I had saved from a blanket package, snaps and my sewing machine.  I didn't measure anything, just cut random sized rectangles and sewed up two sides.  I reinforced the snap area and voila!

A super useful way to put away the beads, take up little space and see your supply.  Gotta love a little organization.
