BeaOrganized – Glitter Glue

Last week’s BeaOrganized blog featured a great storage tip for dry glitters, today we want to show you another fantastic idea involving glitter. Today’s storage tip is a great way to store glitter glue to be ready at a moment’s notice.

Attach a small magnet to the bottom of each glitter glue bottle. In a grid-like pattern attach the alternate side of the magnet to an old cookie sheet. Here’s a tip: use some masking or painter’s tape to create the grid on your cookie sheet. This way the glues will have plenty of space for you to see where each color is located. We recommend using hot glue or crazy glue to make sure that the magnets stick will to the under side of the glitter glue containers.

Grab someone handy and have them punch holes into either end of the cookie sheet, near the handles. Place ribbon through the holes and tie to the under side of a piece of furniture in your craft room (or if it is not possible to tie the tray, find a way to stabilize the tray underneath a shelf of some sort). Attach the glitter glue to each of the magnets. Voila! This fantastic storage idea for glitter glue is ready to go, and so is your glue! Thanks for reading.

    This is a great idea! I have been trying to figure out what to do with all of my bottles… I had thought about getting a thick piece of wood and drilling out holes and sticking them in upside down… but that would take work space I don’t have.

    I like this idea!! and will implement this in a modified form.

    Because of the changes in barometric pressure it would be a good idea to “park” the bottle at a negative pressure so that when the cap is removed the glue won’t coming out.

    As an added thought, I can see setting up a smaller work table rack, the size of only you can decide, with a strip of metal one container wide that would be placed in reach of your work zone

    I love this idea and I hope it’s ok, but I am going to feature it on Quick Tip Tuesday next week on the Fantabulous Cricut blog.
    I will tie the post back to your blog to see more of your fantastic ideas.
