Ready, Set, Go!

Some of the best finds are in antique stores. I am always on the lookout for items I can repurpose and up-cycle!  Recently, I came across two small, very flat wooden cigar boxes that I’ve utilized as portable bead cases that I can toss in a bag at a moment’s notice.

Unlike standard-sized cigar boxes, these beautiful mahogany boxes measure less than one inch in height, eight inches in length, and five inches in width. Fitted with a velour beading mat, each box is a perfect size for holding a bobbin of thread, scissors, needles, ruler, and a twelve-color wheel bead organizer with room to spare!
