I started looking around my studio for boxes or cardboard that I could reuse. That's when I came across my stash of glass jars. I remembered this tutorial I found on Pinterest for decorating jar lids and knew I was onto a winner. I took a load of photos of how I decorated the lids and I'll post the how-to here tomorrow.
All I had to do then was to figure out what to put in the jars. I have 1000's and 1000's of buttons, so I put together little bags of matching buttons, I also included a meter of ribbon in each jar too. I then found a source online for folding scissors, they will be a fantastic addition to the jars and really make this the perfect crafters kit. I'm hoping they will sell well coming up to Christmas as gifts for friends and family. I'll be selling them for €12, which is a great deal as I used to sell the pincushions by themselves for €10.
