How to store buttons {super simple}

storing buttons by thisblogisnotforyou.comWhen I went through my button collection on the weekend, one of the things that annoyed me was that I so often don’t use pretty buttons for my crafting or sewing projects just because I didn’t know I would have had enough matching ones.

I really love plastic containers with many different small compartments for sorting and storing stuff, but I have way too many buttons for that. And there are only 2-3 matching buttons for the most part, it’s not really a space-saver. (For buttons I stick to my old metal cookie boxes)

A very easy way I came up with was threading matching  buttons on a string and keeping everything in place with a knot.

  1. Hallo Charly,
    hier gibt es Knöpfe immer im Röhrchen (zumindest im Laden). Manchmal darf ich die auch mitnehmen. Das ist auch super! Soll ich die morgen früh ein Bild davon schicken??
    LG, Carola

    1. Kannst du gerne machen:) Ein Röhrchen hab ich auch. Aber das reicht ja bei weitem nicht, ich mag alte Keksdosen zum Verstauen 🙂
