There are thousands of small items in my studio. Little craft items I need to store usually end up in a Ziploc baggie or one of several mismatched boxes.
Now I’ve got awesome upcycled containers that function better and make it way easier to find what I’m looking for. All these baby food jars needed was a good wash and a coat of spray paint on their lids.
I especially love these for the tiny letters I use to make custom notebooks for my shop. Rather than searching for ages to find the letters I need, I’ve split the letters (a-d in one jar, e-h in another, etc.). Talk about a time saver!
The jar of brads may be the prettiest one in my collection. I just love that it’s so easy to see what’s inside so I can quickly get to what I’m looking for.
Ask your friends with little ones to start saving baby food jars for you for your projects. This works with larger jars too. Your pasta jar can hold ribbon, crayons, paper scraps, etc. What is your favorite storage solution?
