Beading Board Box

What do you use as beading board? Do you have a customized one? I know everyone is all crazy about the bead on it boards. I mean, they're really beautiful! Who doesn't want to bead on them? The only thing that is preventing me from getting one for myself is its price!! LOL

But if you also don't have one of the luxurious bead on it board, you may be happy with this simple idea I had other day: a "beading board box".



These are gift boxes that I bought at a local Joann store. They're very sturdy and are available in several sizes. The large boxes measure 1 inch (2.5 cm approx) height. I think it's the perfect height because it's high enough for you to store tubes of beads and other stuff, but it's not so high that makes uncomfortable for you to rest your hands on it.

And the best part: it has a lid!

I'm emphasizing the lid thing because I always used a piece of fabric to cover my working in progress - to protect it from dust and fur (who has small pets will understand). But now that's not a problem anymore. I can just close the box and leave it anywhere. 


In the small box I just placed a beading mat inside of it - I had to cut the mat because it was too big to fit in. In the large box I created a small section (to keep extra materials) by gluing a piece of cardboard.

The large one measures 12.25" and the small measures 8.75" x 11.25". Both have the same height: 1".


You can buy the boxes online at Joann website. Click HERE to see the large box and HERE to see the medium one. There are other colors and size options available besides the ones I linked.

And here's how I storage the different projects I'm working on:

Craft Space Solution: Folding Table

Today I want to show you a product I recently bought to solve my "no space to beading" problem: the Lifetime Personal table.


This table measures 30x20". Its height can be adjusted to 21, 24, 26 or 28 inches. You can easily carry the table to place it wherever you want in your house. And when you're not using it, you can fold it up and store in your closet for example.


The table is large enough to put your beading board, tools, materials and a portable lamp. You can place it in front of the TV to beading while you're watching your favorite TV show. And the best part is: without your beading board on your lap, you reduce the chances of messing up your beads every time you get up!


In this picture you can see my customized beading board. I made it with foam board and felt. It's very stable and you can use it on the table or on your lap. I'll make a tutorial showing how to do it soon.

I bought the table at amazon. You can check it out HERE.
