VIDEO | Sequin Storage

Hello there, I recently shared in my January haul video that I purchased some new containers to hold my sequins in. I thought I would share with you what they look like now I have all of my sequins in them and they are tucked away in my drawer.

Before I got the Elizabeth Ward containers, I was using Craft Mates containers. I have to say that I really like them. They hold a lot of sequins or any embellishment for that matter, and they are pretty compact and fit in a drawer really well.

So what made me change then? Well, I have seen these Elizabeth Ward containers popping up everywhere. A lot of crafter in the US store their sequins in them and they do look lovely in them. So for a long time I searched and searched for these containers in the UK. I found them to be incredibly expensive. Finally I found them in a bead shop called Stitch n Craft Beads for a reasonable price. Well of course I had to grab them! I purchased quite a few of the Tiny Containers, but I also got a pack of the Small and also Medium.
They fit in my drawer really well and take up less space than the Craft Mates ones did. It is also easier to just grab one mix out instead of having to take a whole row out (not a huge deal obviously but it is nice!). One major bonus - nothing leaks from them. Even the tiniest of tiny confetti does not come out. I love them! I keep them in colour order and as you can see, I have lots of room to grow in my drawer now. That is one of the things I find really important when setting up new storage/organisation systems. You need to still have room to grow!
If the sequin mix is from Little Things from Lucy's Cards then I keep the original label since they come off of the bags easily and fit perfectly on these containers. If I have a mix from another company I just create a label on my Label Maker and pop that on the back too.
Here is a look at them in the video:

Here are the links to what I have used on the card. Please click on the picture or wording to be taken to where I purchased it. Affiliate links are used on some products.

The company that I got them from ship worldwide I believe but if you are in the US you can get them easily from Simon Says Stamp (affiliate link used) or Amazon. Thank you so much for visiting me today. I hope you have a great day!


  1. Hi Michelle, love your new storage,just wondered if you were looking to sell your craft mates boxes, thanks, Sarah

    1. Hi Sarah, thanks for your comment :) Sorry, I am not looking at selling them at the moment. I think I am going to use them to store older embellishments in. Thank you for asking though :)

  2. I have these they're absolutely FAB, no leakage whatsoever and really robust boxes. I have the tray container as I don't have anywhere else to store them, pricey but worth it. Loving your scrummy array of sequin colours! Lisa x

  3. I love these Michelle! I have my beads, dew drops, buttons, etc in tiny jam jars and even tho they are cute you really can't stack them up or sit them on your work top as they take up too much room, or fall down! So these tiny containers would help me a lot! I think I'm going to have to purchase a couple!

    Thanks for sharing!

    Big hugs
    Roni :D xox
