Magnetic Tag Holders

Today I am packing up my treasures so I will be ready to head off to Bead Bonanza in Southfield Michigan.  This is a huge show that offers finished jewelry, books, parts n pieces, display supplies, tools and more.  This show happens twice a year and my setup varies a little from my regular shows due to the fact that I sell a lot of parts and pieces that need to be displayed in a cute orderly way.  When I was at Bead and Button this spring one of the displays we saw made use of springs and magnates that I thought was genus.

It was an easy project I just stopped by Mix Hardware, who re the best in Battle Creek, and picked up some stick magnates and springs that they would fit into.  I then simply took pliers and bent the top several loops of the spring to a 90 degree angle so it could hold the description and price tag.
 Add these to any steel surface and you get a truly cute display that is extremely inexpensive and practical.  I only have 2 of these cute muffin tins and I could use a few more but no time to shop now, I need to get my goodies packed up and ready to go.
