An Altoids candy container is a great way to make a beading project portable. It can easily fit in your purse or pocket and there is plenty of room for beads, a needle, thread, and a small pair of scissors or thread cutter. You can even add a container of Thread Heaven (thread conditioner). Line the container with beading mat fabric and you can use the container as a beading surface while on a plane, in a waiting room, at a sporting event or anywhere else where you would to pass some time.
