I use a binder, but only because I have buttons still attached to packaging.

I went through my collection and sorted everything out (I have a page for stars, a page for hearts, a page for appliques, etc.) and taped everything to a piece of construction paper.

I just slide them in and out of a page protector. Its not that bulky and it makes everything super-visible. The tape makes it pretty easy to grab and put back on.

Hooray for buttons! I store mine in this clear plastic cube thing:

I think I got it at The Container Store (love that place!!).

Lol! I'm glad I'm not the only one hoarding buttons.



I hope these links work.
I quite literally have thousands of buttons and still get really excited when I get more. The container is just a cheapie one that can hold hanging files. I found it at Joann for like $3. Not the prettiest, but it works.

lollidoll - I think it's more of an obession now! I got a huge tin on buttons for my birthday, I was so excited it was stupid.

I've been saving buttons for years and none of these containers will do. I need more space or less buttons.

Fewer buttons? Yikes! More space, of course. Good thing the universe is expanding.

I use plastic jars from Safeway that came with "gourmet" Basmati rice.  Nice wide lids, clear, unbreakable, and two will stack on a bookshelf.

It's a little more than I usually pay for rice, but it's MUCH less than I usually pay for storage gizmos.

I invested in a spray bottle of Goo-B-Gone, and the  labels came off clean.

I have those little containers with clear lids that magnet onto a little metal "board" thing you hang on the wall. Its out of the way and you can see the colors really easily!

Now when you're finished say, "MY, what a lovely tea party!"

I like jars, random jars of all shapes and sizes.  The you can sort your buttons by colour and line them up along a window sill or shelf or somewhere Cheesy

Only trouble is, I'm also having a dilemma about what to do when you have a good few buttons that all match...  You can't just throw them in so they're all mixed up with the others!  Surely you need to know how many you have of the same buttons so you know what you can use them for, if you knwo what I mean Huh

I'm very into Britney Spears' early work, before she sold out, so mostly her, um, finger painting and macaroni art.

Bond Girl,

You know the solution for your dilemma!  More buttons!  Wink

It's a never ending cycle Grin

"If I had a magic charm
It would protect you from all harm
There'd be no sirens to alarm
We could stay here every day
And if I were a super hero
Good guys all the villains zero
I'd save you from all that is evil
So you can sleep at night"
