    I think I saw a thread about this before, and a lot of people had a lot of great suggestions, c'mon people, reply!

    Hmm, you could glue them to things like to make a border on a picture frame or mirror. You could sew them on to your jeans and make nifty patterns out of them. You could use them as beads.

    get a plain purse or handbag (or make one) and sew buttons all over it to completley cover the fabric. it looks really cool.

    or -- get a pair of fabric flip-flops and sew buttons on the thong part that holds your foot in

    or -- make a plain fabric belt or sash and cover it in buttons and use yarn or hemp or whatever to tie it up

    or what i think would look so cool, but would probably be heavy and probably awkard to wear, make a skirt and get tons of tiny plain buttons and cover the fabric in them so your basically wearing a button skirt! you could make a really funky pattern with different colours of buttons as well

    cheers!

    I saw someone make one of those hanging beaded curtain things out of a buncho of buttons. It was pretty cool. You can also sell anything on eBay. After I got fired from Dillard's, I sold my nametage for $5.

    It's a department store run by a bunch of snobby southerners with a slave owner mentality... They have a lot down here, but not many up north. It's like Hecht's and stuff, but it's supposed to be more upper class. Whatever.

    Holy shit! That's a lot of buttons!

    Anyways-- I use buttons to end my hemp creations. Instead of tying a huge knot on the end, I just slip in a button, and it works wonderfully.

    Uh, the button hanging curtains - did yall sting them up with the buttons flat?

    I really like the idea of using them to make mosaics on clothes or bags. I might try that on a bag.
