It is handy, sturdy and mobile. It fits nicely into any storage area or bag. Colors or numbers can be marked on the box itself for ease of use and accessibility. This idea is far better than mixing and dumping the beads on the tray or work area as a box is more organized and handy.
A spice cup
Like a medical pill box, a spice cup holder is also a good option for storing the diamond painting kit. It keeps all the beads separated and available in one place. The cup holder can also be used to store diamond painting tools and hold a rolled canvas, making it a perfect place for all the items required for the craft. A spice cup holder is easily available in the general stores and there are a lot of options to choose from based on cup size and number of cups.
The tray used for storing the eggs has a individual cup for upto 2 dozen eggs. This design makes it perfect for use during making a Diamond Painting. This tray is lightweight, easily available and does not require any monetary investment. Each section holds good amount of beads that can last for entirety of the project. The tray can be slightly modified with a cover or color code making it easier to recognize the placement of each bead. A section can be made in the tray to hold the tools too.
Zip lock bags
A ziplock bag is idle for long term storage of the kit and similar colored beads as it is weatherproof, transparent, lasting and flexible. It can be put into a box or pouch for future use. These bags are easily available in the market or online. There are a lot of options to choose from in terms of size, material and color. They can be hung into closet by attaching them on a hanger or thread. It is easier to distinguish the type of bead stored in each bag and organizes the work area nicely.
