Hmm, a NON-crafty use? What about just adding them to my craft room/collection of cute things to look at? :) I could also use another "B" item in the house to help my daughter learn he letters!

These buttons look like a perfect match to a button I have lost on my jacket....please send them to me so I can button my jacket. Now you really don't want me to catch cold when the weather turns cooler....do you???

These are neat buttons. I thought about using them on the inside of a cabinet door so that a kid can't pinch their finger when they close the door.

well I was going to write how I could use them to sew my own eyes shut, that way I wouldnt have to see the messes my kids make and have to ask them 900 times to put there toys away but I dont want you to think I am weird or mental or something like that...

Well, I am pretty sure that I could stop up my kitchen to sink with those hummers! Not like I really want to do the dishes, but I probably could!

Those are very cool. I could probably use them on the bottom of the stool that the legs aren't even and it rocks every time I stand on it!!! LOL

Let's see...if my kids try to stick these buttons up their nose (like they did with beads when they were younger), I will know before they do! :o) Love the name of these buttons...they are so neat looking!

I give three main uses with minor to follow. First, place a single button between each key in a set to act as a kind of silencer against the jingling. Two, sucking on a button will cause one to generate saliva keeping their mouth moist when experiencing severe thirst. A kind of survival tactic. And third, one can use several buttons to replace missing stones in the game of Mancala. Now, other uses may include adding length to a shorter table leg or as a component in the prank known as, "Snake eggs."

Non crafty huh? I need buttons for my duvet cover!

Love these buttons! They'd be great for a practical joke. Put a glue dot on the back and stick it to the floor. Then watch people try to pick it up!

a non-crafting idea?!?! don't you know that my mind only works in crafting mode?!!! ;)

otherwise my sons would use them for game pieces i.e. for throwing at each other! :D that is what seems to happen to pretty much everything else in our house - it ends up as a projectile! then of course it becomes a cat play toy because the boys never seem to pick anything up off of the floor.......... oh my.... or the reason I end up needing a band-aid on the bottom of my foot!
