Craft Storage: Recycle, Re-purpose & Re-use: Jars, Cups & Canisters!
Craft Storage inspiration is sitting on your shelf…re-think those jars, cups & canisters you’re no longer using!
It’s Kim from Stamping Imperfection here to share some quick and easy ideas to corral your tools, ribbons and embellishments.
Do you ever feel like it would feel great to get organized, but you’re not sure where to start and the prices on the fancy organizing tools hold you back?
I know exactly how you feel!
I’ve been re-designing my crafting space to have a more cohesive look. In the process, I’ve been searching for ways to organize my stash that won’t break the bank.

This is a beautifully cohesive look. I love the color this adds to a craft room!
The added advantage to using clear jars is that you can see exactly what you have and where it is! You don’t need a color coded map to find things!
(Don’t laugh, I’ve seen craft rooms that have those!)
Another CSI post from ages ago led me to find crafters using salt and pepper shakers to store glitter!

Need a clever idea for kids’ craft supplies?
Check out this cute jar storage idea I found on Pinterest via House to Home UK:
Simply glue a kids’ toy to the jar lid and paint it!
So simple, easy to find your things, and it looks great on a shelf or a desk.
I had two great finds of my own while browsing the local hardware store.
(I teach physics and I craft so that means that I love browsing hardware stores!)
I’ve been looking for something to replace the plastic cup that I use to hold my must-have tools on my studio work table and I found this great glass mug for just a couple of dollars:

Of course, I added some stamping and embellishments to dress it up.
You can check out the finished product on my blog at Stamping Imperfection!
Another find for me was a giant Mason Jar.
I’ve been looking for a pretty way to store retired ribbons that I can’t use on my blog anymore, but which I still plan to craft with.
I bought one jar, but I’ll be going back tomorrow for a couple more of these!
These will look great on a shelf and they will make it easy to find my older ribbons.
