A few weeks ago I mentioned these nifty little Rubberband bracelets that are really popular with children.
My 6 year old has been making all sorts of fun bracelets and I thought I’d mention how we have organized her piles of rubberbands.
Apparently there are storage cases for Rainbow Looms at Learning Express stores for $15. I have not gone to look at them but I did find a nice solution at Michael’s for just $5.00.
When I bought our Rainbow Loom, my Michael’s store did not have any cases available but I took a look in the jewelry and beading aisles and I spotted a little case for $8.99.
The case comes with little compartments that you cut and slide in yourself to make the size dividers that you want. I will say these are not the best quality so we had to trim them to get them to fit. Once they did slide in, the box is pretty functional and certainly worth the $5 price.
This beading case worked perfectly for the Rainbow Loom that we have- the loom itself actually fits perfectly inside. I used a 40% off Michael’s coupon and the price was $5 and change.
This snaps closed and is small enough to tuck in a drawer or to tote around.
I have been pretty happy with this case and for the price, it really can’t be beat.
I used my Silhouette machine to adhere my daughter’s name to the top. You can embellish your case with paint, decoupage, or in the scrapbooking aisles there are lots of stickers and even sparkly letters similar to what I did.
You might also check the Back to School areas in your stores as they have cute little stickers meant to embellish school supplies and lockers that would be perfect.
You can read all about what supplies you need to make these cute little Rubber Band bracelets here. The entire kit with 600 rubber bands plus the nifty little case above will only set you back about $20.00. That is really not a bad deal considering how many bracelets you can make with your kit!
