Organize Buttons In Clear Film Cannisters

Have a lot of buttons, all colours, shapes, and sizes in a bag or bottle? Collect the little plastic containers from a photo developing shop (clear ones), stick little round stickers on top and colour them with Koki pens. Fill the containers with the buttons, pack them in a flat box. If you want to find a button, just look inside the box, look for the colour you want, take it out and select the button suitable for the job. Saves time.

We use old prescription bottles for the same thing, as well as for beads. It works great!
