Creative Tuesday : Little Bead Feet

I've registered for the class Technique Toolbox with Claudine Hellmuth at Big Picture Classes .  The class hasn't officially started yet, but part of the preparation work is to create your own little toolbox using pdf printables created by Claudine.  Her design is so adorable.  I love it.  And of course I wanted to do something to make it my own.  So I added little bead feet and changed up the handle supplied by Claudine and by using a door knob type topper instead.

I added some hardware to the corners and a half chipboard button, too.  But the bead feet - how I love the bead feet! I made these with cheap costume jewelry I found at flea markets that I disassembled for the "parts".

To make the feet I've attached the spacer and bead together with wire, "knotted" the wire at one end and inserted the wire through the box and secured it tightly inside with a good glue.

My next work in process is a simple kraft jewelry box from a store in town, that I'll dress up the same way:

Have a Creative Tuesday!


  1. What a great idea, Betsy! I love the feet on that cute little kraft box!

  2. I'm in love with the feet too. Great project, Betsy!

  3. Oh I love this, Betsy! I'm going to have to do something fun with my box, too!! Thanks for the inspiration! :) Evie
