We live in a small space so I am always looking for something to add more organization to our space. I noticed that this button box moved with us. I had made it years ago using an old box from a Clinique give-a-way and all the shirt buttons I had. Since then I had made jewelry out of vintage buttons and had a lot of old white ones. So I added another layer to the box.
If you want to make one I suggest a finding a fun box at Goodwill or a tag sale. I got a lovely Japanese wooded box in golden colors and added all the brown, gold, tan buttons to the top of that one. I gave that one to my cousin Alice.
The key is to start with the buttons touching each other. When that layer is done then like a puzzle add more here and there paying attention to color and texture as you go.
