Hello! It’s a Totally Tipster day around my house today. I have been making blessing outfits for my grand babies, and came to the button part of the pattern. Oh no, ugh! — this is always such a chore because my button box looks like this:
Come on, I know that most of yours look very similar to this as well:). Now, I like the look of a button jar or the feel of running buttons through my fingers, but this is not a decorative button box. It is supposed to be a working button box.
I dug around looking for matching small white buttons for about 30 minutes, and finally said, “Enough already!! It’s time to fix this!”I took out a package of large safety pins that I had in a drawer and got to work.
I divided the buttons by color and then started pinning button sets on pins. It really didn’t take that long, and they look so pretty!
Not every button had a matching set, so I left those alone in the box for single button projects.
I just love LOVE LOVE how easy it is to find buttons now! Pick a colored pin and off I go:)! SWEET!!
I hope this Totally Tipster Tip helps some of you get your button collection under control too.Please feel free to leave me a comment if you do:)!
