So, you have little tiny beads on your bead mat and you want to put them away? This is where a bead scoop is invaluable.
You can use the edge to scoop the beads onto the tool and then easily pour them back into a tube or bag.
However, this is not all you can use a bead scoop for - the pointy end is great for sorting and separating beads.
Also, a little randomly, I find the scoopeez in particular is very good for card marking and putting creases in paper… it works better than a paper folder.
If I am beading on the move I always ensure I have a bead scoop with me.
