Birthday Gift Idea

I love to give craft baskets as birthday gifts!  I'm forever picking up this and that to have on hand...but my absolute favorite is fuse beads! Yes, I've posted about fuse bead fun before--they are definitely a go to craft  in my house!

I'm a nutty momma and buy these things in bulk:


The scary thing is I probably have three times the amount pictured!

Good thing I like to share the crazy!

The problem is I never know how to package these things up to give as gifts.  You can imagine how thrilled I was when I found these at the dollar store:


The perfect kind of container!  Fill them up, add some peg board (yeah, I buy these in bulk too!) and you have a lovely b-day gift:


I've been told that these were a big hit!  So glad to have introduced another family to the fuse bead craziness my kiddos and I enjoy!

I remember those beads! We used to have them when we were small - dunno what happened to them. I haven't seen these things in ages!
