When it comes to storage for my scrapping supplies, I try to think outside of the box. It seems to me that once a storage item is labeled by the manufacturer as being for Scrapbooking the price tag more than doubles.

My solution for tiny things, such as brads,eyelets, tiles, beads and glitters is to store them in test tubes. It's working GREAT for me. All the tubes fit nicely into a rack and I simply have to move the rack to my scrapping table when working on a project.

Test tubes are quite inexpensive. I purchased online 100 test tubes, 2 racks and all the green lids at Total price tag with shipping was under $35.00. Not bad for 100 places to store things!

Ooooooh. I want to comment... but am all distracted by the sparkly goodness...

You are so right about the price of things being jacked up as soon as they stamp "Scrapbooking" on it. That's why I hang out at Lowe's for all my storage needs ;)
