One of my fondest memories as a child is going through my great-grandmother’s button collection (which became my mother’s).  I would sort by size . . . then re-sort by color . . . then sort again some other way.  I truly believe that buttons had a huge part in developing my creativity.  I have a huge button collection that you can see here.  I’m always trying to think of ways to use them, and I found a boatload of projects to share with you.  They are all relatively simple and require only a beginning knowledge of crafting.  A great one for children is the easy button hairclips shown above.  For 22 more ideas, continue on.
