Storage for Basic Pearls and Rhinestones

Are you obsessed with storage items like I am?  I LOVE to find new ways to store my stamps and supplies.  I also love to organize, and sometimes I re-organize what I already have organized.  (Did you get that?)  I also like to clean.  I especially love to run the vacuum.  I know, I'm a little freakish, but what can I say?

Recently I decided that I needed a better way to store my Basic Pearls and Basic Rhinestones (both found on page 198 IB&C, items #119247 for the Basic Pearls and #119246 for the Basic Rhinestones - $4.95 each).  I took a couple of our Clear-Mount Stamp Cases (pg. 205 IB&C, item #119105 set of 4 for $5.95) and the Everyday Enchantment Designer Series Paper (Sale-a-bration) and made these.

 Embellished with Mixed Bunch Stamp set and Blossom Punch.

 Embellished with Beautiful Butterflies Bigz Die (pg. 218 IB&C) stamped with Fresh Vintage SAB stamp set and run through the Big Shot with the Square Lattice TIEF.

You can store 3 or 4 packages of the Pearls or Rhinestones in one of these.  I also added a small envelope pocket on the left for extra storage.

I used my label maker to put the names on the side so when they are propped on my desk, I can easily see which one I need. 

They were so much fun to make - and easy too!  Now my pearls and rhinestones are easily within reach and I can keep them all together (and organized)!  I'm a happy camper!
