All About the Buttons

I have decided to make buttons with the left over materials from my other wood crafting projects, such as environmentally friendly soap dishes, candle holders and rustic twig baskets.  
Wasting great wood is something I did not want to do.  I love to turn something deemed as "leftovers" into something useful.  I look at this as the great term "upcycle".  This has turned into a lot more ideas for future projects, and ideas I actually have not put into use yet.
