CRAFTING TIP OF THE WEEK (#41) GLITTER STORAGE

Happy Monday Bloggers!

This week's tip is a quick one geared toward helping you keep your glitter in tact & organized in a fun, new way.

Simply put...try using clear glass salt & pepper shakers to store your fine glitter or sand.




Pour your fine glitter or sand into the vessels, screw the lid on & shake away.
Not only are the shakers functional they will look pretty kept out in your craft space.

Their small size make it easy to store and handle when crafting.

It is just another way of repurposing an item you may have on hand or might just have fun going out to get. The dollar store sells glass and plastic salt & pepper shakers. Since the dynamic duo usually come as a set you will have a place to store two different mediums at a low price point. They come in regular & mini sizes.

In the same way, you can use cheese shakers with larger holes in the tops to store mica flakes, thick glitter, mini beads, etc...

The key is to stick with CLEAR shakers so you can always see what medium is inside as well as your color.
