Downsizing

These are the shelves that I have designated for my huge button and yoyo supply.

I have about 4 times the amount that can fit onto these shelves. I don't need all of them. I use a certain amount when I create samples for tutorials and to create art work for exhibitions. 4 of the bottles I use when teaching and the students get free rein to choose whatever they want to.


So what do I do with all of these?

One of the ideas is easy. I sorted a mix of buttons in varying sizes, added in a selection of beads and filled recycled soft drink plastic bottles with the buttons. Each one of my students is gifted a bottle so that they can always create at home.

Why plastic and not glass? I learned that the hard way after dropping a glass bottle of buttons on the floor and having to pick up buttons which were scattered amongst shattered glass.

The next step is to sort my bottles of beads. I will be doing the same, keeping a selection and gifting a bottle each to my students.
