How many of you remember that button jar or tin grandma used to have? I do, any time you lost a button you had to dig through them to find one that matched. I wish I had that jar today!
I use buttons on my cards and in my scrapbooks, they make great balloons, bubbles or just dimension. many think I am crazy when I go to garage sales or stores and buy buttons, until they recieve a card I have made with them.
Then came the storage issue! I like to be able to see the buttons so I know what I have so I started sorting them by color and using canning jars to keep them in. This works great. And you can decorate the jar.
