- Buttons: Use all and any of your buttons! I reserved a couple of the mason jars for my buttons from Buttons Galore and More because they are so special to me.
- Stamps or Marker: You will need either a stamp or marker to label your jars! You can organize the buttons by color, style, age, etc., but you will need something to mark the the cardstock with! I stamped each color of the lid with the matching color of the buttons in the jars to be able to easily identify the colors.
- Hot Glue: Use hot glue or another strong adhesive to hold the cardstock in place on the mason jar lids.
- Container or Basket: A basket or similar container is the perfect vessel for storing these button containers. Storing the jars in a basket or containers makes everything look even more organized and neatly!
Note: Get creative and decorate the mason jars with different colors, materials, and patterns. Another one of my favorite things to do is make vinyl labels for my mason jars with my Cricut Machine! There are so many different patterns and templates to use.

I started with a pile of buttons in a huge plastic tub. I could never find anything when looking. So I grabbed my jars and started sorting the buttons by color. I also have a ton of vintage buttons still on cards so I threw those in a large galvanized bucket.
Next, I cut out white card stock to the size of the mason jar lids. Glue or adhere the cardstock to the tops of the mason jar lids.
After that, I stamped the colors of each jar on the tops of the lids to be able to easily identify the buttons.
Fill each jar with your colored buttons and organize them how you would like. I like to organize my buttons and jars by color.
Place the lids on the jars with the buttons and stamp the cardstock on the lids with the names of colors. You can already draw the names of the colors on the cardstock, too.
Place the filled jars in your preferred storage container, basket, or tote to keep all of your button crafting materials in one place.
