The other day I bought some 10/0 seed beads to crochet with. These beads are super small -- 2 mm in diameter to be exact, so I got to wondering how to organize these itty bitty things. I debated on buying this for 6-bucks:
Nah! I'm too cheap, and I'm such a self-proclaimed recycling freak.

I hope you get a chance to try this project!
