Do you hate to throw anything away including jars? Why not use them to store things from your sewing or craft room to keep it organized. All you need to do is wash them out and make a label to put on jar. That is it. You can use your cricut to make your label fancy or even scrapbook paper and layer.Easy and useful project.

Mason jars are the best thing that happened to my craft ideas hobby. I use them for holding my brushes and crotchet hooks. I used chalk paint to coat a section of the jar and label them if I don't intend on cleaning them with water often but I do agree that if you use them in your kitchen maybe to pickle then keep the label outside and then this craft is perfect.

Mason jars really are wonderful. They are sturdy and reliable. I use them to store all sorts of arts and crafts supplies and also my button collection. I also use them to mix oil paints and acrylic paints and to store and carry turpentine and other solvents. They are great for holding water to dip brushes when painting with water colors.

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'd have rint the labels as my writing is so bad that even I can't read it!! Very pretty though! :-)

You can print them there are thousands of free fonts out there too! And some awesome wing ding fonts (those are picture fonts) for crafters!

What a fun way to get organized! I will add this to my list of craft projects.

plastic boxes from walmart are fine but you bought them.... Glass jars you recycle... i reuse all mine and paint some for fun.... even sause bottles eg HP can hold oxo cubes and look great fun and different... ...... Lin...UK

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.

I use a tackle box for my jewelry crafting! I love the huge ones because of all the little component compartments.
