Welcome to a new blog feature where I'll be sharing storage solutions for crafty supplies. These will be things that are working for wrangling my crafty stash and I hope they work for you too! I have not been paid to do these posts. I just really like these storage products. When applicable, I'll post alternatives to what I'm using or additional options. Let's get started!
LET'S ORGANIZE: SEQUINS
When sequins became all the rage awhile back I was like, "meh". It wasn't that I didn't like them or that their sparkly luster didn't grab my attention but rather it was another embellishment that I wasn't sure I wasn going to be on board with. (I know ladies, you're all shaking your head at me, righ?!!!)
I finally succombed to the allure of the sequin craze and picked up a couple of packages. Those couple of packages turned into ten packages and those ten turned into... well, you get the picture.... a huge ginormous mess of sequins that needed a home of some sort.
After using them out of the little ziplock baggie thingies and trying to use storage I had on hand but didn't really work, I picked up a couple of the Craftmates Pop 'N Lock Ezy Locking Caddy, 28 Compartments and my use of sequins skyrocketed!
Each color has it's own little compartment.
I don't have to open the lids of any but the color I want to use and look how pretty they are all color coded and in rainbow order (that step isn't a must unless you're like me and have obsessive compulsive ROYGBIV issues)!
Now I have a few of these little storage caddies all stacked up with my ever-growing collection of sequins (Pretty Pink Posh anyone?)
Stack several to store them neatly on a shelf. Sequin happiness.

I was telling Paulina at Pretty Pink Posh about my new series and how I was showcasing sequin storage and she generously offered to give away a $25 Gift Certificate to the Pretty Pink Posh Online Store. How awesome is that?!!!! Sequins, dies and embellishments that give your handcrafted items that perfect finishing touch!
