If you make flower pins you could use the buttons as the centers.

I make stud Earrings by cutting the shank off shank buttons and then gluing them to blank earring posts. They turn out really well!

Top 5 stuff I have done with buttons:
1. Hot glued around a cheap acrylic picture frame (great for kids pictures "cute as a button")
2. Cement stepping stones (have held up very well over almost 6 winters)
3. Super glue or apoxy to plain brass thumb tacks or to round magnets
4. Crochet coin purse, used large old button for closure
5. Plain tab top curtains (buttons at each tab)

Also, has anyone ever used one of those button-eers (saw one at Walgreens, it looks like a gun that attaches tags on clothes, uses little plastic things to hold buttons instead of sewing). Just wondering if anyone has ever used one.

I have so many buttons it's out of control but I was making button rings for a long time that sold in stores in Seattle and NYC.  It's fun and easy.  Other ideas would be to decorate boring clothes with them, bracelets, belts, earrings.  There are so many things to do with them really!

I have seen rings done a few ways.  I used elastic.  Someone else has made them with stringing beads to that stretchy cord you get at bead stores and then putting a button in the middle.  this looks really cute.

One of my favourite things to do with my button collection is to use them in the intersections when I'm hand-tying quilts.  They look so pretty, and add personality to the quilts.  I also use them as embelishments on my appliques.

Wow...I just had the exact same thing happen to me!  My grandmother gave me about 16 tons of vintage buttons...I am doing something similar to the pillow idea mentioned on the first page...I'm making a plain denim purse and coating it in buttons.  The idea has been in the works for several months because I can't seem to make a decision about purse shape. 

Anyhoo, just wanted to share!

Hooray for my first post!!!
