Have a cluttered craft space or an assortment of mismatch containers just lying around waiting for a use? I always have both of these problems. I am such a packrat sometimes and I save every jar until I end up with a huge assortment stuffed under my kitchen sink. Quinn was always asking me what I planned on doing with them all since I was running out of space to squirrel them away. I finally decided it was time to put some of them to use. I use to always buy containers to put my endlessly growing craft supplies in and then DING like a lightbulb I thought, hmmm why don’t I just make a bunch of matching containers to put my little odds and ends in so my craft space will match and I can save some money!

This little project has worked like a charm for my hoarding and storage issues. It even helps me use up left over fabric because you know I just can’t throw those pretty little scraps away either. As a bonus if you ever want to wow someone with a uniquely wrapped gift package they can keep for their own storage needs they will always remember your thoughtfulness when they open it up to grab something out of it.
