My New Button Holder

Hi Everyone,
I can't believe I forgot to post this. I made it this summer and was so proud of it. Okay well I didn't exactly make it so much as put it all together. I bought this shelf at Value Village for $4.59 and I got the mason jars at Canadian Tire for $8.84. It works perfect! I hated the system I had before it was actually a pain in the butt to use buttons because I had to do so much digging to get one. Now...not a problem! And how awesome does it look under my ribbon holder shelfs that I got at a yard sale last summer. Slowly I'm organizing my room cheaply so that I can spend all my extra money on supplies :)
Got any great organizational ideas I could use?

This is how they were stored...


And now...


My sewing machine actually belongs on this table but I moved it for the picture so you could get the full view. When I get a house and can hang more stuff on the walls it will be hung too but it is too heavy to hang right now without some support.

great organizing idea, and they look so pretty all color coded! I also have aaalllll of my buttons in one big drawer, I spend more time picking for one than I should! Thanks for stopping by my blog, it's great to have new faces :)

Hey, I love that someone else used a spice rack for buttons. I have mine up on my pegboard. I also have white wire racks for the ribbons. Great to have found you, I love seeing other craft spaces :) Lisa

This came out very nice! It's always great to see inexpensive organizing ideas! It is SO easy to spend a fortune on the fancy kind.

very fun and organized! I just picked up a ton of buttons! The sign said CLEARANCE but rang up full price, I walked the lady over to the spot and she had to give them to me at the marked price (It was a super deal!!)

Your new system looks fabulous! I separate most of my embellishments by color and it's so much easier to find what you need.

I have my buttons organized the same way!! From one A type personality to another...you rock! LOL.

(Oh, and I didn't know you were from Canada, eh?! Great country! I should know...I was born there and lived there most of my life. ;))

What a cute idea! When I get my craft room, I'll have to remember this.
