Buttons as Earring Holders


I stumbled upon this little gem last week.

Buttons as earring holders. Buttons as EARRING HOLDERS! Am I the last to know about this genius idea? If you are afflicted with the Can’t Keep A Pair Of Earrings Together Disorder, you must employ this quick and easy remedy.

No more fishing around for a lone earring, and if you’re like me, you probably have 13,000 extra buttons lying around from the ridiculous amount of clothing purchases made over the past year. What? You know who you are.

    smartest idea EVER! especially considering I keep those random buttons in the same bowl as my earrings, I might as well put them to good use…

  17. Whoa! What a great idea on matching up those extra buttons we get with a messy jewelry box full of mismatched earrings! Thanks for sharing!
