Gar Fish Scale Flowers Cover Minder, Needle Minder - Two Color


About this Product

These gorgeous Gar Fish Scale Cover Minder, Needle Minders are made with 100% gar fish scales. They have been cleaned, sanitized, and dyed, mostly using natural products. I use things such as Beet Juice, Coffee Grounds, Grass and other plants, Broccoli, Green Beans, Carrots, and other veggies, and some fruits, Dr. Pepper, Coca-Cola, etc. However, I will use dye on occasion or hand paint them if I can't get the exact shade that I'm looking for. I do add a rhinestone or something to the center if I do not use a scale.
You will pick the color of your choice from a dropdown menu. Each Minder will be approximately 2.5 inches in diameter, give or take a little, depending on the size of the scales. You can choose to have two, three, or more colors in a different listing in this shop.

Gar Fish Scales are very strong and extraordinarily hard making your new Minder extremely difficult to break or damage!


A Cover Minder is used to hold back the “cover” paper out of your way as you are Diamond Painting in sections. There is a Decorative top with a magnet attached to the bottom of it. There is an extra magnet that goes under your light pad, or canvas if you don’t use a light pad, and the two magnets attach, holding the paper out of your work area.

A Needle Minder is used to simply chuck your needle down whenever you need to take a break. There is a Decorative top with a magnet attached to the bottom. There is an extra magnet that goes under your canvas and the two magnets attach, never to lose your needle, create unnecessary holes or get a rust stain from needles left in your needlework ever again!

I use very strong Rare Earth Neodymium Magnets and they are strong enough to even hold your scissors.

To use, simply slide the two magnets apart, place the decorative top on the front of your project and place the second magnet underneath your project.

I have even had a few people tell me that they wear them as a brooch, so they don’t get holes in their clothing. They tell me that the magnets hold very well through their clothing!


Due to the strength of the magnets, to prevent cracking or breaking of the magnets, please do not allow them to clash together. Please slide the magnets apart to separate them instead of pulling them apart.

**If you need exact measurements of any item please message me directly**

***These magnets are very strong and are a choking hazard. Please be sure to keep them away from pets, children and any electronics and medical devices. ***

Meet the Maker

Hey Y’all!  Welcome to The Dancin Daisy! We are Lisa and MeLissa, a mother/daughter team, that believe the art of being a creator is in the details.  We don’t stay within our comfort zone and try to create something extraordinary for you to enjoy.  We feel that creation has NO LIMIT!

We live in South Louisiana and love the beautiful lakes, rivers and swamps that surround us. We love being on the water together with a fishing pole in our hands!  We also enjoy “hunting” for items we can use to create our designs.

When The Dancin Daisy started in 2019 as a hobby, we never thought our love of crafting and creating would turn into a small business.  Lisa was a paramedic/firefighter and MeLissa was an executive assistant, who each have a passion for “helping others”.  Now that we have both retired, we are creating for YOU full-time.  We are so fortunate to be able to work together side-by-side designing and creating items to make you HAPPY! 

Our creations cover a wide range of items.  We started our small business making accessories that can be used for diamond painting and cross-stitch. While we still offer those, we have now added a variety of products that will keep your home looking beautiful.  Our wreaths, table décor and creations made with oyster shells and alligator garfish scales are sure to enhance your home.  Don’t see what you want? Let us know and we will design something just for you. 

All of this would not be possible without the help of our husbands, family, friends, and our wonderful customers who support us with every order!  Thank you for helping us to make YOUR creation come to life. 

What an honor it is to be affiliated with  There is nothing more rewarding to us than helping a child in need!  So, Thank You.  Thank you all for shopping small businesses and THANK YOU for being a part of the #caringeconomy and shopping on goimagine.

We appreciate you for visiting The Dancin Daisy.  We look forward to working with you and creating something that puts a smile on your face!
