It took me about 20 years to come to this conclusion and method - whether I am using a plastic container or a glass container, I put my labels INSIDE the container rather than sticking them to the front. You still see them, they stay clean and fresh looking and that container can be reused without having to remove tape or glue residue at a later date.

I use mason jars to put different colored buttons in each one, and I put Flower Soft colors in the smallest size mason jars. It all looks really nice in my craft room. Very colorful. They are also pretty inexpensive by the case. 12 per case....perfect storage.

I don't label this way as I usually decorate the entire jar and label the top...But they are really cute...

I use jars that popcorn comes in to hold a skien if yarn I am using to keepit clean These are the large jars. You can buy jars but these saves on the trash and can be used over again. I am the eldest of 10 living kids soI have learned to to save when possible. I knit and crochet a lot.

I use tackle boxes for my crafts! You can find them at WalMart for a very reasonable price. I think they're made by Plano. and you can put two of them together (slide mechanism) so that you are always organized. The jars are okay, but I can carry two (or four) of these tackle boxes, and have enough crafts to keep the grandkids busy for an entire week of camping! I have one for jewelry, one for oils (painting), one for acrylics, one for face-painting (complete with glitter/colored hairspray and nail polish), etc.
