Storing and Organizing Prima Flowers

Hi Everyone!!  I have been busy redoing my craft room.  I purchased a new desk and more jetmax cubes and have been busy putting everything together and everything away!  I wanted to share with you how I organize and store my prima flowers.  My husband purchased these glass canning jars at Walmart.  They came in a box of 12 jars for around $7. 
I needed something to put on top of my jetmax cubes.  It seemed as everything got put on top of them and it looked really cluttered.  And as you can see from the photo, when you walk in the front door the top of my cubes are right there.  It was habit for everyone to throw there stuff on the top of my cubes.  So I found this greenery at a yard sale for $3 and I just knew it would be perfect for my cubes.  However, I wanted the nice side of the greenery to show when you walked in the front door so I needed something for the back side of the greenery (the greenery looks so nice when you walk in the front door ).   I knew I wanted to store my prima flowers in jars but the plastic jars that were sold with the jetmax cubes were shorter and fatter.  My husband suggested the glass canning jars and I was thinking the little jars used for jam and jelly.  He came home with these jars from Walmart and I was thrilled that they are taller and slimmer.  They are the perfect fit on top of my jetmax cubes.  I was able to fit 11 jars nicely on top of the 3 cubes.  They are PERFECT!!

I sorted all my prima flowers and organized them by color. 

There is a picture of the top of the jars.
I just LOVE how colorful it is!!  It is the perfect fit for the top of my cubes. 

Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting!!!
