DIY: Portable Bead Tray and Container

Mary Corbet is always coming up with great storage ideas. This time she shows us how to make our own tacky bead container.

Of course if you are not handy or just short of time, you can pick up a Tacky Bob.  I really like mine, although they do collect pet hair over time.  You can wash them off which helps but the sticky isn't quite as sticky after a bath.  It still works, though.

If you like dual use tools, Accoutrement Designs has a bead and needle case combo that has a magnet on one side and a tacky sticky area for beads on the other.
