Please note that pictures that show finished mini beads are representations of possible kit components assembled might look like. No assembled bead strands are in any kits.
While pictures show one assembled strand per kit each bead kit actually contains enough beads to make multiple strands (one with a charm and several simpler strands) to really fill out your throw!
Craft Culture also offers bead kits individually a la carte (so you can buy Package A or B and then supplement with your favs). We're adding new a la carte options all the time so if you don't see your favorite parade or walking krewe represented be sure to let us know!!!
