|Bead trays... and bead pods!|
|Tool box-style bead tray... and bead bags.|
|First style of bead tray and a simple style of box.|
|Open-top bead compartments for work-in-progress!|
The open boxes are for when you're crafting, the bead pods and flap boxes can be used for craft-time or storage, and the bead bags (with cello windows) are for storage. All are fun and easy to make.
Here's how to fold the swirly "bead pods":
|Pinch the corners, then fold flaps consecutively.|

Apart from the window bags, you can't see the contents - so you can either colour-code the bags or label them.
Of course, these make great gifts for crafty friends. And, if you big up the trays and bags just a little, they'd make lovely packaging for sweets.
Stuff I used: American Crafts Cardstock (fantastic to fold and glue!), Craftwork Cards papers (for the bead bags).
