That's so cute and nice! Wow! I used to keep altoids tins, but recently I've been convinced that I should throw things away more often. Last time I listen to noncrafty people! Maybe I'll keep the next one and do something. What a wonderful idea!
Hey, those are too cute! I did something kind of like that for my boyfriend with a bunch of weird glass beads 'cause he dressed like a pirate for a ren faire we went to. I had to put in a ton of bobby pins, and have him tie his bandanna over it. But, I found something that works really well to keep things in your hair. Go to: http://www.darice.com/ecom/Products.aspx?ct=JEWELRY-HAIR%20ACCESSORIES%20SHANNON%20ONLY-2209&oid=137, and then look for the snap on hair clips (there's no pictures, but they work nicely). Have fun!
Beadstyle magazine, which is done by Bead & Button magazine, is great for beginners in beading who want to learn some new techniques other then putting beads on string (they do that too, but they pretty patterns for putting beads on string). I made a ring from a pattern they had, made with some thick wire, and I constantly get compliments on it. Check it out if you're interested.
