How do you store your kandi?

I've been making kandi for about a year and I have a slight organization problem. Right now all of my beads for kandi are hanging out in plastic baggies and a big cardboard box. I really need a different way to store them that makes it a little easier to access than what I currently got going on. I also have a very nosey puppy who has already eaten some beads and I really need to prevent this from happening. I was thinking about getting a tackle box or something along those lines. If anyone has any other suggestions that'd be great!

i have a cardboard box for kandi and a bunch of plasic bead seperator organizer things that you get at walmart when you buy a box of beads. the bead boxes are scattered round the house and the kandi box only has like 1/2 my kandi so im in the same boat as you

I bought a desk from a garage sale for dive dollars and that's what I use. I also went to the dollar store and bought little buckets. I hope this helped! big grin

I just buy a huge box like to store decoration for holidays or a decent size that you might fill up (think about future size too if your gonna make tons and tons of kandi) and I keep the box under my bed or by my beads and other stuff and fluff happy

For my beads, I got most of them stored in those bead containers you can find next to the bead aisle in Hobby Lobby. Some are in the bags/containers they originally came in. And I shove ALL of those bead containers in one cardboard box. It's not the best method of storage. I got so many bead boxes that I can't close the cardbord box anymore. XD For my jewelry, if I'm not wearing them, they go in this really neat toolbox. But sadly, I've filled most of it up with my jewelry. And my bigger pieces are in a separate drawer right now. @u@;; And I have this junk drawer I keep putting my bracelets in after wearing them all day. Which isn't good because they can get lost that way. =w= ;; I don't think my ways of organizing my beads/kandi/stuffs is the best at all. -w- But They're always nearby me at least. ^^ What I REALLY want is a craft room because I draw and make cosplays too. That'd be a really awesome place to store kandi supplies in too. I think so anyway~

If you would like having a large amount of beads on hand this is what I use ( I have 6 of them) and then for storing finished projects I have an entire clear plastic storage box ( like one for christmas decorations) that I put them all in

This is my Kandi station :p It helps A LOT at keeping my beads organized.

Beads: I have a bowl I use for some of the beads but most of the time I leave them in the bag they come in. ^^ Kandi: I have a ziploc bag I use for it (like super sized) but I am running out of room so I will probably have to buy a container to put it in xD

I have them organized into different boxes on my vanity like one is cuffs another is tradable singles the others are meaningful singles to me and then a box of stud I got from trades. Also instead of my vanity being for my makeup It is my kandi vanity. Drawers to but toys and packing stuff and then I can put all my beads under it. I hate it I my kandi is not organized
