Every crafter needs a good supply of buttons. And while I'm no button hoarder, I do have myself a good supply. Before I started on this project, I had three plastic containers and two plastic baggies full of buttons. Those take up a lot of space- and space is at a premium in my office/craft room/guest room. So, I knew it was time to Crafternize!
I bought this craft storage container at the dollar store.
But I couldn't just throw buttons in there and call it good. Of course, I had to make it cute. So I broke out the washi tape, picked a few colors I liked and got to work.
It couldn't be easier. Simply tear strips to fit and press them firmly down on the outside of the box. I wrapped the ends around the sides of the lid and even a little onto the back side.
I finished with a little label cut out with my Silhouette.
Now, my buttons are all in one place and easy to grab when I need a specific color.
