Organizing tip for beads

A couple of weeks ago, I gave an Origami workshop for an international cultural event. After finished my workshop, I took the rest of Origami papers home and made these small boxes for organizing my beads. This box’s pattern is very easy! I used to make it as a child but had not been doing Origami for quite a long time. Now I am surprised how it is useful for our everyday life! … Origami easy box

今まで、手元にある色々なビーズをそれぞれ小さなナイロン袋に入れて保管していたのですが、作る度にビニールを開け閉めするのが何とも作業し辛く、個々の包装に包まれたままではイメージがしにくく在庫管理が難しいので、色と形でパッと見て作れたらなぁと考えていました。

インターナショナル文化交流イベントで折り紙ワークショップをした後に、手元に残った折り紙で小さな箱をせっせと作り、色とタイプでビーズを仕分けて机の引き出しにセット。

これが思った以上に使いやすくて気に入っています。
