button, button, whose got buttons?

If you're a sewer, like me, I bet you have tons of them... When I'm out shopping I just buy them because someday I might need them (you know what I'm talking about, right?) and now I could never use all I have. I just can't resist all of those juicy colors! So, here are a few projects I found to use up some of my stash...

Make button stamps by gluing them onto corks. Found at Martha Stewart, I never would've thought of this. Looking at mine, I do have quite a few that would make pretty ones. By the way, if anyone in my family is reading this, I have a whole bag of corks if you need some. Not that anyone who knew me would know that I'm a collector of small useless objects or anything like that! I think I just like to own stuff. :)

Little Bird Handmade made tiny wreaths with them. Wouldn't they be cute hanging on doorknobs? I love the red - to me it's such a cheerful color.

How About Orange has instructions on how to make button covered thumbtacks. Watch a video from Sacramento Bee on how to make a bulletin board to go with them!

Lollychops made these cute little button flowers...

... Artsy-Crafty Babe made these

and I Knew That made these with fabric leaves...

...but Kiddley made a whole bouquet of them!

Country Living has an idea for napkin holders like these...

...or these colorful ones made with bandannas.

Unique Re-tiques has yo-yo and button hang tags.

Cards with removable buttons come from CraftStylish. Thoughtful for a sewer's birthday...

Or sew a journal cover and embellish it with buttons...also from CraftStylish.

And for you serious sewers, proclaim who you are to the world with these rings from Ric Rac. How's that for button bling!

Don't have enough buttons that match? Watch this video from Crafty Goat on how to make button molds with polymer clay...

But I couldn't close this post without sharing my favorite and that's my little chihuahua whose name is Button! She'll hitch a ride to my son Matt's hoodie (he looks really happy about carrying the princess around, doesn't he? Hee Hee)

...or in my girl Laura's purse. By the way, check out the pretty purse Laura made for her upcoming trip to Hawaii! Lucky girl.... And lucky me for having such loving children in my life. I'm so blessed... Enjoy!
