Do you have one of these? Or perhaps your Mom or Grandma or favorite Aunt had/has one...a button box. Or in my case, a button tin. A tin full of different, strange, fun, pretty and interesting buttons. I don't even sew! I used to make sweatshirts that I would embellish with buttons and that's how I started collecting them. I haven't added to this collection in years but I just couldn't throw it away. Now I've found a cool use for them. I was going through some magazines I was getting ready to toss to recycle when I spied an article with instructions on how to make bracelets from old buttons. It's easy, cheap and a project I think my Granddaughters and I will have fun with. I'll show some finished products when I get done. I'm anxious to start! I'm not an "Arts and Crap" lover..but now I have a use for these!
All kinds of buttons to pick from. I think this project will be fun!
I thought these were cool...little pine tree buttons..Hmmmm...Whispering Pine tree buttons? The wheels are turning!
