Button for your thought?

I have a lot of buttons.  A LOT.  Some came from friends who know I like to sew and more came from a large tin that was my grandmother's.  I consolidated all the random containers into one large one however digging through that bin became a bit daunting.  I found the solution in a bottle!

I went through a bit of a Starbucks frapachino binge and saved all the bottles.  The kids helped me sort them in rainbow colors.  I spray painted the lids in a robins egg blue to coordinate with my craft space.  Now they look pretty enough to leave out on display.  It is much easier to find ones that work with my project this way too!
Too bad this is only some of them!

I'll be linking up to some of these parties this week, like Orgjunkie

Great idea!
I'm launching my first linky party next tuesday. It's for projects that cost less than $10 and take less than 20-30 minutes. Would you consider linking up with me on my first linky party endeavor? Thanks!

Very cute- I love how you separated them by color. It's a great way to recycle too! I keep a bunch in mason jars but they're all jumbled together. Thanks for linking up!
