Repurposing Jars

So...the other day I had a serious lapse in judgement and purchased some store-bought bruschetta (the brand has been cleared from the picture):
It was inedible. Yet, the jar it came in was so square-shaped and pretty! What could I do with it? Flower vase? Nah...I already made one of those out of a pickle jar. How about a button jar? Ok! I got to work cleaning the jar: 
I removed the label with "Goo Gone" and my family's all-purpose tool, a butter knife:)  I used dish soap to remove the "Goo Gone" grease. Then I used some lemon and a pinch of salt to clean the inside of the jar and remove the food smell. I let it dry and filled it with my very newly established (and therefore small) button collection:
Much better!
