All of us collect things. One of my favorites to collect is buttons.
Why, you ask? I use buttons in crafting, so different sizes, styles, colors are important to have on hand.
Above are some of the unique ones: ice cream cone, hand, anchor, lock, skeleton, book, etc.
Here are some of my purple buttons: star, horse, teddy bear, heart.
Just plain old button shaped buttons in different sizes and colors.
What I use buttons for:
Eyes, noses on toys
Jointing doll limbs
Decoration on Christmas ornaments
Adding a design on quilts, sweaters, etc
I prefer older style buttons. I used to be able to find big bagfulls at Thrift Stores. Not so anymore, but EBay has a great selection. Here’s a page on Vintage Buttons (my favorite): EBay Vintage Buttons
You can buy them in bulk from amazon: buttons on amazon
Even Etsy has buttons: buttons on Etsy
What about button art? Etsy Button Art
I’m not fond of today’s resin buttons. They just don’t have character like buttons used to.
Are you trying to decide what to do with buttons? Never fear. There’s craft books too.
Great creative today. Developing one talent will only lead to even more talents.
Leo Buscaglia once said: Your talent is God’s gift to you. What you do with it is your gift back to God.
