Today I’m sharing a craft organization/storage trick I came across a while back. I wish I remembered where I first heard about it. I’ve seen it in multiple places, so I don’t know whose idea it was originally. Anyway, I think it’s awesome, so I wanted to share it with you. It’s a way to organize the tiny embellishments that come on sheets. They usually come in blister packs (I think that’s what they’re called) that can’t be reclosed once opened. 

Here’s how to store your embellishments:

Get the Extra gum packs that come in a plastic box.

Once the gum is all gone, pull out the label. You’ll have a nice, clear box with a lid that snaps closed.

The Enamel Shapes fit beautifully inside the boxes.

Some things, like Pearl Basic Jewels and Rhinestone Basic Jewels, that come on larger sheets, need to be cut to fit. I usually cut them between the different sizes of embellishments on the sheet.

I keep mine in alphabetical order, so I can find them quickly.

I’m sure you can find it in many places, but I ordered mine here.
