I have recently inherited from my church a fairly large storage box fillllllled with tons of amazing vintage beads, and really cute childrens beads and such. But among these amazing beads, are hundreds upon hundreds of tribeads in every imaginable color. The daycare at our church doesn't need them, and I hate to throw them away....

Is there any non-tacky way to use this tribeads?
Have you seen any cute projects using theeem?
I could use any and all help I can get!

The only things I can remember making with tri-beads are really quicky Christmas ornament to add onto gift tags for Christmas - you know, stringing them on wire or pipecleaners to make wreaths, candy canes, things like that.

I like them in crewel-type embroidery projects. They add a little shine and extra dimension while laying nicely and having large enough holes for the wool. I also ran across a vintage safety pin jewelry book that used the tribeads with E beads (about the same size as 6/0 seed beads), and the results were rather pretty. They stacked two tribeads together, and it looked more like a fancy rondelle. I imagine that would translate to stringing a necklace or bracelet pretty well.
