I've been on the lookout for more vintage boxes to use as button storage. The other day, I found one and ordered it from an Etsy seller:
It's a flat, red box made of very heavy paper. The linen-like cover has a label that says, KB1, Asst. of Push Buttons. Even though I'm pretty sure they're not talking about sewing buttons, I thought that was fun and rather fitting!
I bought it because of all the cool little compartments inside; here, as you can see, I have begun to fill it with some of my vintage buttons with paste, or rhinestones, or jewels of any kind. I even put a few in that have little formica flakes; those are called composition buttons.
There's nothing special about these buttons except that they are older. And that I like them.
They're not valuable, but they are important to me.
I am so loving playing with my buttons!
