After taking a beading class several years ago, I wanted to share the sparkles about this little gem of a gift. A now dear friend of mine who taught the class, gave me a bead tin and even included a little pair of scissors with a darling bead dangle on it. I still use that bead tin and scissors to this day! I have also now made several more bead tins for myself, as functional gifts for friends and my own jewelry students. So, special thanks to Gloria for giving me this great gift idea!
Using E-6000 jewelry glue instead of hot glue reduces your chance of lumps underneath the felt or beading mat (hot glue cools VERY quickly on the metal lid).
If you make this for yourself or as a gift for fellow beading or scrapbooking enthusiasts, please hashtag your photo #SparkleByMonica at Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest or Instagram so that I can see your designs! Have a sparkle-riffic Valentine’s Day and happy beading!
So glad I came across a fellow YouTuber’s review vlog of some handy storage container carriers and findings. I followed her lead and ordered the headpins and jumprings multi packs (along with a bunch of neat lampwork glass Christmas beads) from Oriental Trading…and went to Harbor Freight to pick up these 10 Tray Utility Boxes with my 20% off coupon. The 1,000 bulk pack headpins and jumprings may sound expensive at $17.50 and $12.99, but they actually average up to or a little over 1 cent per piece. All excellent purchases!
Since The Frugal Crafter’s video didn’t get much into the size of the boxes, I decided to make this brief vlog to fill in the blanks. So far, I’m loving my purchases and may even go back to pick up a few more boxes at Harbor Freight.
I’ve been taking the time to tweak my website and update or change several ways I am transacting online. I was finally able to update my referral link to Amazon in relation to my Sparkle By Monica domain name instead of my old rainbowkittys website.
For all you Amazon shoppers out there, please remember to use my aStore link to look up anything you might be interested in snagging there. If you purchase something (even Kindle related) while on my link during your shopping experience, I will get a small referral incentive.
I can also provide specific product links to share with you on your blogs or website, if you need any content rich product info. Just message me and I’ll snag the HTML code or banner for you.
