So Many Buttons!

When one has room for everything, it can easily be displayed. Sometimes, though we have no idea how to arrange those special items that are hidden away from view.

After arranging my tables and things in my quilting space, I also thought I’d share with you how I like to display my buttons.

My Button Jars

I really don’t know what it is--but one thing we know is that we like to collect things. One such collection for me.... is that I like buttons. So when it was time to sort through my boxes, after having some things in storage, I found these jars; and they have worked perfectly for storing and displaying my button collection. And, when I want to look through the jar, all I do is pour them out into a box lid and find what I want to use. It is also a great way to play with them, even my granddaughter loves to play with them and sort them out into different categories.

In the future, I may sort them out into separate colors, if I feel that I need a quick method to locate only one particular color. A perfect container to use for this method would be to use a parts storage cabinet. (IE: a multi-drawer design with small see-through, pull-out drawers, as shown below.)

Hang in there, and happy crafting!!
