Button, button, who's got the button?

Those cute little round things that Grandma used to keep in her sewing box have become one of scrapbooking's most popular embellishments. They come in all kinds of sizes, all kinds of shapes, all different colors and are made from lots of different materials. Just look here and see all the different kind Memorable Seasons has for sale. There are basic buttons, acrylic buttons, fancy buttons as well as chipboard buttons to choose from. Just a few uses for buttons are
  1. They can be used as the center of flowers.
  2. They can be used to form borders.
  3. They can just be scattered around your page to add interest and texture. Consider using different sizes and colors and types when you do this.
  4. use them to cover the hole on a tag
  5. use them instead of "O"s in your titles.
Have you got any other ideas for buttons? Let's talk about them in this thread.

Do you like the look of sewing buttons on your layout but don't want to actually punch holes in your paper? I learned a trick on how to get this look quickly and easily from a video at Creating Keepsakes. Watch it here.
