I also have a huge collection of different buttons that are mostly left over from the wholesale buttons I have purchased for my different craft projects.
Bookmarks and Paperclips:
You can use buttons in making simple yet beautiful bookmarks. You don’t always need to do grand and complicated things for making something special. I have used buttons to make bookmarks and decorated paperclips using my own stashed buttons. You will just need some paperclips, fancy buttons, and hot glue and felt to make attractive paperclips. You can also involve kids in this kind of fun activity as they will enjoy it a lot, just be careful while using glue. All you need to do is stick your paperclip with the back of the button and glue a small piece of felt over it; it will seal the glue and leave a smooth finishing look. That’s it and you have your own hands’ made attractive paperclips. You can also use them as bookmarks.
You can make your own unique button coasters, all you need to make coasters is buttons and glue and felt. Get all your favorite wholesale buttons that you want to use, cut a piece of felt of a suitable width and required shape. Start with a button in the center of the felt and glue it. Then stick 6 buttons around that button. Stick another circle of 6 buttons around it; now add a round of 12 buttons and that’s all.
All you need to make button magnets is pretty buttons, glue gun, and magnets. This is the simplest and the cutest thing you can decorate your fridge with. It only takes 5 minutes to make; just stick the buttons on the magnets using a glue gun and that’s all you need to do.
You can put you stash of wholesale buttons to good use like I did and recycled my old shoes by giving them a brand new and unique look using buttons. You will need a pair of shoes that you want to recycle, pairs of different cute and attractive buttons and a best fusing glue. All you need to do is clean the surface of the shoes with a clean sponge and spread a thin layer of glue on it using a brush. Dab a small amount of glue on a button and stick it on the show. Make sure that both of your shoes have the same button arrangement. Allow the shoes to dry completely and your unique button shoes are ready to wear.
You can also use your stock of wholesale buttons in gift wrapping, gift making, bobby pins, clips, jewelry making, hair accessories, flower making and many more.
