Washi Tape Button Storage- Crafternize It!

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.



If you're looking for some fun projects to do with buttons, try this cute Shamrock Button Shirt for St. Patrick's Day


This easy Button Clock


Or even this Pleated Headband


They are also great for embellishing any project, like my Burlap Plaque or my 4th of July Blocks



I'm linking this up to some parties this week!  Check them out here

  2. I love the button clock! That is clever!

    I have a ton of striped washi tape arriving in the mail today but I am wishing I ordered some polka dot washi too. Your button storage is cute!

  3. I organize my buttons the same way. You made the storage so cute! My trouble is keeping my kids from "reorganizing" the colors!
