I have a lot of buttons, the picture above shows on pot of them. I also have another bigger jar of black buttons and a square storage tub full of bagged tiny buttons. But thats not all I have a few extras in my sewing box and a bag of large brown buttons somewhere.
The glass jar pictured contains an assortment of buttons from wooden to plastic of all different sizes and colours.
I use the buttons on lots of things from the Cornish Pixie Elves and they are perfect for joints on the Art Dolls. They have also been used to decorate a mirror for girlie and some christmas wreaths / garlands and I have also made them into jewellery.
Most of the buttons have been bought, though I do have some that my gran collected over the years including vintage mother of pearl buttons. I recently used some of the vintage buttons on Catalina the Day of the Dead Art Doll.
My husband also had a button box when I moved in so I sorted them out and found the square button in the picture above.
I do love buttons they are pretty, tactile and you can make so much with them.
