Organizational {Friday} Buttons & Dew Drops

Happy Friday everyone. I am fighting allergies today so I am a bit slow and quite frightfully pale! Good thing I won't be sharing any pictures of me today. LOL! :) Anyway, I wanted to share two other ways I store buttons and Dew Drops. I have so many buttons that I really keep them in three different storage units. Now that's pitiful!

First, let's look at my cheaper storage. I know most of you probably have those awesome Maya Road tins around. Grab one or two! They are perfect for buttons (and many other things). I keep all of my Creative Cafe buttons in two of these tins. I keep the pastels in one tin, and the darker colors in the second tin. I label the top with my labeler, and there you go!Now this next wonderful unit is available at Wal-Mart for $19. I saw the idea on one of Leah Fung's wonderful videos. It does come full of spices and has labels on top of each jar. I just took off the labels, saved some of the spices (yes, I dumped some), and then ran them through the dishwasher. Perfect!Then I filled the jars with Dew Drops and buttons, added a little ribbon fun, and there you have it! So cute!Now, because I do keep my products separated by manufacturer, here are pictures of the tags I either put inside the jar or on the bottom of each jar. It works perfectly for me.I hope one of these storage options might work for you! Have fun, and as always--happy organizing!
