Crafting tip: use what's in your kitchen

Using tiny seed beads used to drive me crazy... not bad when I was using them for a jewelry project but horrible to clean up.

Now when I use seed beads, glitter, or other small crafting supplies I pour the supplies out into paper muffin cups. This keeps everything organized and contained. When I finish the project I fold the edge of the muffin cup into a spout shape and pour everything back into the original container.

great idea!
you could also line the muffin tins to keep them in order if you needed to leave for the night but want to come back.
Or. like me you know you are going to wind up bumping into a bunch of them all at once.
