How do you organize your beads?
I have four of these Need-A-Bead boxes, but that doesn't feel very inventive.
I am a complete noob with beads, I really just mess around making things for myself, so I don't have enough yet for one of those cool boxes
I use old food jars and boxes I find left behind in the hotel where I work (asian guests always bring their own green tea and they come in the funkiest boxes and jars! So, I take them and clean them lol also pastile tins, when they have gone and don't need them! Of course )
Oh those tea boxes sound awesome, do you have a photo of them?
here's one tea box, a lozenge tin and a candy tin

Aww those are pretty, other countries have much nicer packaging than the UK.
opposites-girl, those containers are awesome!
I have a few proper bead storage boxes, but mostly I just keep them in old mint tins and film canisters (remember film?! from like the olden days before digital cameras hehe).
Yeah I remember them, I have a couple which I use to store my studs in.
you know the M+m mini's cannisters i use those and some time i save the altoids tins and use those other wise i have storage boxes too.
I Collect see -through boxes here they are...
I like the tall blue drawer thing, where'd ye get that one from? I bet Tom would want your Miffy postcard too.
ah yes my friend jaquie gave me the miffy postcard otherwise he could have had it but it has got writing on it from her and i promised i would put it up in my room and think of her!
the blue tiny drawers have been around for years i think my mum and dad got it from a bootsale years ago! they are very handy! my mum has some down in her studio too and i want to steal them! but i have heard that fishing tackle drawers are good and i think this maybe what they are...
Ah cool. I have some similar that my dad used to keep his DIY stuff in. It's missing some drawers because it blew out of the window one day and beads went all over the street - that's still one of the most traumatic days of my life, I was collecting them for hours and there are still loads missing.
oh no thats horrible! what a nightmare i thought it was bad just spilling them on the floor and having to pick them up! i have 3 drawers missing too because it's so old im not sure why!
Try ice cube trays, they're stackable and easy to paint
That's a great idea, thanks Tucker
