Buttons are really pretty fascinating. Not only are they something we use daily and take for granted, but they are so varied! Some buttons are extremely valuable – there’s a National Button Society for people who collect rare and interesting buttons! Fun fact: Goodyear didn’t always make tires – they actually started out making buttons!
Of course, there’s no need to use fancy buttons for these fun projects; just hit the local thrift shop or tag sale and you’ll probably find a big cookie tin full of random buttons. Craft stores are a great place too; they have a wide variety of colors, shapes, and materials to choose from. Have fun with it! Maybe you have some old clothes; cut the buttons off before you retire them!
