Here is a fun way to enjoy those great buttons you have in your stash. I made these for a 'button fairy swap' and can't stop making them now. You make a fairy (just add wings to anyone you think is fairy-worthy) and then wire together a button tail. Voila!
What do you do with them? Well you can hang them anywhere - I put a little wire hook on the back. Mostly, I give them away to special people.
