I really should get a jewelry box, but the kind I want and the price tag I’m willing to pay never matches! I have a lot of charms that I switch around on my chain, and they have been hanging on one chain to keep me from losing them for a while. I HATE that! It’s a pain to get the charm I want, as I have to sort through all of them and frankly, I don’t like wasting the time! I’ve been wanting to do something for a while to sort them but I couldn’t think of how to do it using stuff I had laying around.
Then, voila! Medicine holder! PERFECT size for the small charms, and I have a larger one that can be used for larger charms! Yay!
Since it isn’t see through, I made labels for each one so that I could quickly find the charm I am looking for.
I decorated the side using scrap paper I had left from another project. I used glue dots to keep the paper on and it is working out great! No issues with gravity trying to pull it down!
On the back, I stuck magnets so that I can stick it to a board as soon as I get to that project! I suggest using large magnets so your stuff doesn’t outweigh the magnet strength!
Hope this is a great addition to your projects! Sorry my posts have been late so much, I’ve been crazy busy with trying to buy a home, dealing with lendors and such. All prayers are solicited and appreciated as we go through this process!!!
