A Chest For Lesser Treasures
In the traditional arch-top piratical shape, this mini-chest measures 4-3/4” long x 3” tall x 2-3/8” deep with a hinged top and a little gold-tone clasp in front. In sanded but unfinished pine, ready to decorate. Handy for small presents (gift cards sit up nicely inside), cleverly and classily displaying business cards, storing jewels or interring gerbils.

Melted Marbles
Failed ideas that are cute end up here. In this case, it’s rock-pun greeting messages (Grandmas Rock!) attached to bags of polished, flattened glass marbles in assorted colors. Toss the little cards and you’ve got sacks of perfectly good melted glass blobs, (9) to a package and approx 1” across, with myriad craft or decorating uses.
$4.50 PKG (3)
Cut It Out
Use it as a stencil, hang it on a wall or from a string, or put it in front of a black light, which is what these die-cut acrylic figures were meant for since they're UV reactive. Nice for classrooms, craft projects, lighting fixtures, whatever. The cat figure is approx 8" across x 7-1/4" tall plus a 1" mounting tab. It's almost clear, except for a slight bluish tint. The dog is amber, 8" across x 5-3/4" tall plus a 3/8" tab. The jumping dolphin is 7-1/2" long x approx 4" OA, and bluish-clear. Behind its tailfin is a separate 4" dia red ball with a 3/8" mounting tab. The fish skeleton is neon green, approx 5" wide x 9-3/4" long, plus a 1/2" mounting tab. All are 3/32" thick with a paper backing.

Make Solar Jewelry
Take these (250) little translucent beads into the sunlight and they burst into assorted colors faster than you can say "assorted colors." How do they do it? Well, they're UV-reactive, that's how. Mostly pink, purple, rose, yellow and cream and they fade to a nice pearly color inside. Amaze your friends at picnics. Beads measure 5/16" dia x 1/4" with a 5/32" bore. Come with classroom application notes. Click here for the video.
