Just One Tip for the New Year – Small Embellishment storage

Hi everyone, it’s Sharon here with an embellishment storage idea as part of our Just one Tip for the New Year series this month.   I like to have pretty items of my stash on display rather than hidden away in drawers – particularly if it’s items I can store in a rainbow order as for me, that’s just one of the nicest things to look at!

A few years ago I came across this little white cupboard in a gift shop.  It was on sale, but I didn’t really know what I’d put in it.  My boyfriend was with me at the time and told me that I should get it anyway, as it was such a bargain I’d regret it if I didn’t.  He was right.

When I got home I found a little jar that I’d bought a long time ago in an art supplies shop and discovered it was the perfect fit for the little cubbies.  Whilst looking online for similar jars, I came across this site selling cosmetic jars and realised this was a much cheaper option than buying from an art shop.  That’s a UK site, but if you google for 30ml cosmetic glass jars I’m sure you’ll find a local supplier to you.

The jars are the perfect size for flat-back pearls or sequins, and look so pretty all together.   They’d look just as good lined up on a narrow shelf.

I hope my jar storage has given you some ideas for your own space.

Thanks for popping by!

  1. I’m slowly getting organized in my craft room. Today I actually completed a scrapbook of snow pictures from when my children were small. Now I need to find someone who can use my leftover snowflakes and stickers.
