Buttons Galore!

I have always liked the look of buttons on cards, and had a small collection of nice buttons, but when I purchased Papertrey Ink's new Everyday Button Basics set, I realized I needed more buttons! So, I purchased a few sets of their colored buttons, and that led to a need for the perfect storage solution!

I picked up this set of storage jars from Making Memories and this KI Memories dot paper was the perfect match. I covered the box the jars were packaged in with the patterned paper and painted a Grungeboard label holder to match one of the colors in the paper. I used my JustRite stamps to create the label and added a couple of brads before adhering it to the box.

I added a handle to make it easier to move around, since my counter space is pretty limited. I cut a sheet of dark blue Stardreams metallic paper and affixed to the front and back of the box using brads, so it will move left and right to allow easy access to all of the jars. It's worked out great so far, except I 'need' more colors of buttons, so I may have to make a second one!

Hope you've had a good week! Thanks for looking!
