From coffee to crafty storage !

Hi all , the sun is shining here in my little part of the world and doesnt it just make you smile when its like that x well I have been busy all morning organising my beads and buttons (I know how sad when the sun is shining !!!) and I have another addiction other than crafts and that is COFFEE well anyone that knows me that is not news ..loL.. any hoo ,I had lots or empty jars another addiction of mine , I can not throw jars away ! so I decided to get my stash out and pretty up some jars for all my odd beads and buttons . So I used some paper , ribbon , bling and some hand made flowers and this is what I came up with ....
some gorgeous ribbon and bling and a plain old coffee jar is transformed
another vies ...cute ehhh???
more ribbon and bling and flowers and hey presto !
well i love them and i will have great fun filling them up and even more fun emptying them again x
well i am heading down stairs to get me and hubby some lunch but i will be back later to link up to some great parties later

  1. My favourite is the jar with the pink bow and top with the pearl beads inside. Kind of reminds of a lady's outfit. Have a great weekend at you "link parties"

  8. Great way to up-cycle those jars. They look adorable. I'm totally into saving jars. We were on a peanut butter kick a couple of years ago & I was saving the jars -- you know, big wide opening, many possibilities. I used quite a few to do some Jar Mixes for gifts. Some others, I painted the lids white & use them in the sewing area of my craft room for zippers, velcros, elastic, etc. Oh, and I love the candle jars with the cute lids -- always save and reuse those!
