Default Brad and Accent Storage

I reorganized all my brads and other such little items into these round jewelry containers and I love then. I went crazy and had to do it all at once. Check it out. I have a couple more pictures on my blog as well:

I've seen those little jars - fortunately for me, I don't have as many brads as you do. Yet, hee hee

Awesome! Funny when you get started on a project you end up going and going when you are in a groove. Great job. Mine are in my cropper hopper organizer. I have a few small containers of SU brads that I just put next to them.

I like looking at the home improvement stores, like Lowe's, they have all the neat storage for hardware, and sports stores, I am looking at a fishing lure holder, has all the different little boxes and compartments, be perfect for buttons and brads. I think I saw one in pink camo, be perfect for me.

I uses those too for some larger items. Love them. I use a fishing tackle box for my sewing stuff and always have. It's the same as what you can get in the craft stores but half the price.

For those little brads and other itty bitty items, those little round jars are perfect. I can pour some out without dumping my entire case over. Or just grab one little container for on the go.

Tell me about it. I got started and couldn't wait to go back to the store for more of those containers. I loved the results that much. Now to stop organizing and get back to using the stash.

I store mine in watchmaker tins. The most used (round 1/4" and 3/8") I have on a magnetic board from Ikea (I glued magentic sheets to the back of the tins) right above my work table.

To store brads & eyelets: go to $ store and buy pill containers. I use the 14 bin ones. I cover "day" with small label. Stack nicely. They also now have over- size ones with larger bins. Haven't used yet. Work well and affordable.

The one in the initial picture looks like one in the jewelry department of Michaels. I think it was $9.99 before coupon. There are several sizes. Especially like that the jars sit inside a clear box; so it's easy to lift out all for easier viewing and access.

Thumbs up brad embelishmet containers

I went to the hardware store and picked up a bunch of their organizers quite cheep. I have them organized by colour theme and the spots are sizable to the more you have the more they fit.

I have my brads, and some other small things as well, in TicTac containers ! I put out the word to friends, family etc. I wanted the larger, if possible containers, but have quite a few of the smaller original ones as well. I can peel the label off really well now, (lots of practice) Goo Gone takes any residue off. I have two of the smaller boxes from Walmart with the tiny inserts with flip top lids like the Tic Tacs as well. I love brads !! The larger boxes, line up really will in a drawer organizer from Rubber maid.

I just noticed in my new CTMH catalog. They have some new little boxes for storing Brads and Accents.

Also they have two different storage boxes. to hold all the little boxes inside.


If you can see a Catalog online It's on page 119. It shows a sample of what I'm talking about.

I love those little round containers you used!! I have some bead organizer type containers for my brads and buttons and such, but I am not completely happy with it. I would like to put my buttons into some pretty jars someday.

Those are nifty containers too where each lid opens seperately and you don't have a huge bank of cubes to deal with. Looks great what you did.

I love these containers!!!! I hate it when brads co-mingle!!! My brads and buttons need to be separated!!! Keeps me from spilling brads all over the place too!!

I get them at Michael's. They're about $3. Or you can wait until they go on sale and then they're $1.50.

Or you can buy them from Gina K's:
Brads - Gina K. Designs, LLC
Also $3, but you must spend $50 before getting free shipping.

I use containers that look like tic-tac boxes and they come in a larger acrylic box. I've tried a lot of methods and this is my favorite so far. I like that they are individual containers. I can just toss the yellow ones in the yellow drawer and not have to have all the others attached to it.
