creative glitter storage from ribbon, glitter, and glue


My crafting idol is named Bethany. She is amazing in every way. Even the way she stores her glitter is unique. She has just started a blog, ribbonglitterandglue.blogspot.com, and we're so excited to introduce her to you!

I'm so happy to share with you, all the friends of Little Birdie Secrets, one of my favorite things in my craft room. These vintage salt & pepper shakers make a really pretty AND functional storage solution for one of my most loved supplies...glitter! I can't go into an antiques store or thrift store now without searching for shakers. Like so many other vintage finds, I love the idea that each of these shakers has a story...think of all the dinner conversations they've overheard!


All shapes & sizes - some are simple, everyday-use type & others are intricately cut crystal with beautiful patterns. All together they make a fun display & keep my glitter within easy reach when I need to add a little sparkle to my projects! Hope this inspires you to use the ordinary for a creative storage solution!


Happy crafting...
Bethany

That is gorgeous! ANd totally makes me cringe, LOL. My daughters would be into that in a heartbeat and all that glitter would be all over three little girls and the floor :P It would be pretty for a minute, and the cyclone technology in my vacuum would make it look awesome being sucked up too ;)

Wow you wouldn't want to accidentally shake one of those on your chips! Although it would brighten up dinner time...

Great fun thanks Bethany. Can you come to my house in England and reorganise my pile of fabric and bottles of buttons? :o) I have no idea how to make them accessible and pretty? Lucy xox
