Tip of the Week #1

I have decided to create a new topic for my blog which will not only help me in my everyday craft troubles but will help you as well.  I will be on the look out for tips specifically related to crafts to include in my Tip of the Week Series.  What better way to start a new series off than to share a tip I stumbled upon just the other day.

Welcome to

Okay, so I know you are thinking, "she's just a bit crazy with her ice cube tray" but hear me out.  I kinda stumbled on this tip by accident because I was looking for small bowls to hold all those tiny pieces I cut out using my Cricut.  Normally, it really isn't a problems for me to keep everything organized but when you are cutting out 40+ shapes for an order of invitations, you need something to help out especially with those smaller pieces.  Well while looking in my cabinets I saw the ice cube tray and though it might just work.  Well, VOILA, it was perfect!  Each little ice cube section worked perfectly for the cut layers of the butterflies I was making.  Also I didn't get mixed up on which cut out was from what side of the butterfly because there is a difference (thanks so much Provo Craft!)  I really can't believe I didn't think of this sooner.  Sadly, I am sure my husband will want the ice cube tray back but until then it will be among my scrapbook things!  Here she is again, my very own little helper!

Do you have a tip that helps you in your crafty life?

  1. What a great idea! I would LOVE a cricuit... now that I think about it, I'm going to pin it to my wish list right now! Thanks for the idea.
