My button box had filled up. I couldn't open the lid without spilling a couple of buttons, and going through it to find the ones I wanted was just impossible (unless I was willing to empty half the contents)! I tried keeping the colours together in jars, but it just didn't suit me or my crafting style. It was either buy another bigger box, or find some way to create more room within the one I had. So I found some thick plastic thread and started beading the colours together.Not only has this created more room in my button box, but I no longer have trouble finding the colours I need.It was so much fun to go through my stash and rediscover buttons I had forgotten about!Stringing the colours together was easy to do and to watch the chains grow longer was great!Of course, this means I don't have a good excuse not to buy more buttons...Note to self: Buy more thread to make other coloured button chains.
