I use a wooden caddy I found at an antique store to keep all my scizzors and rotary cutters in to keep them handy.
Another thing I like to use when using beads or buttons are the little glass trays you see stacked up next to the caddy. I will dump my beads into them when I'm using them and it is convenient to just pour them back into their containers when I'm done. Alternatively I will store tools that I need in them (like my punchneedle or punchneedle threader) or store things temporarily when I sorthing things. I got these through Pampered Chef and they are called "Simple Additions".
