Get it Together - Week 2 - Small Embellishments

Over at The Little Blue House we are on the second week of our organizational series.  This week we are focusing on small embellishments.  Here are a few ideas for storing all those little items - check out the LBH blog for the full posting!

a tacklebox - good if you are an "on-the-go" crafter

these units stack and are good for beads, brads, eyelets and small stuff

"small parts" unit from hardware store
(these come in many sizes and are good if you have the wall space)

pretty and functional storage for buttons (or small ribbon pieces)

This is my co-worker, Rhonda's system.  She has a large divided clear box for button storage at home and a similar but smaller one for her "travel" tote.  She also stores most of her embellishments by color in the stacked boxes on the right.

I, personally, struggle with this category.  There are so many sizes of embellishments and I can't decide whether to store them by item or by color.  I will be back later in the week to show some of my embellishment storage methods.
