I have accumulated quite the button collection. I used to have them in one jar all mixed up together. It looked pretty on the shelf, but it was not very practical. I would have to dump out half the jar just to find the color I was looking for! And then, of course, I would have to put them all back in, taking up precious crafting time.
I decided to take an evening and sort them by color. These half-pint, wide mouth mason jars worked perfectly to store them. A sweet friend also gave me some antique mason jar lids like the one you can see on the yellow button jar. Those fit the regular mouth mason jars so I used those on a couple of jars I had. This has made it so much easier to find the perfect color button for my projects and looks so cute on the shelf!
