Organizing ------ With Canning Jars

Canning jars are useful for storage in the pantry, the craftroom and many other places. You can use pretty vintage blue ones or buy a box of new canning jars.

I store my buttons in my vintage blue canning jars in my craftroom.

They are very economical and can even be free.
Things like mayonaise and pasta sauce come in canning jars. Just wash them out well and recycle them for storage.
 These large jars are holding small pieces of fabric.  They look so pretty all together.

If you will be using your jars for more than one type of item,  cut yourself some labels from chalkboard contact paper. 

Here are just a couple of  free printable jar labels.   There are many more out there on the internet.

These are from I-Do-It-Yourself blog.
