How To Make A Button Purse

Updated on January 23, 2012

If you want to spice up an old plain purse and make it beautiful and your own, I have the best idea for you! Make your own button purse! Buttons are in my opinion one of the cutest crafty things to use, and having a purse made out of them, how amazing. Do you collect buttons or purses? Are you looking for a fun craft to show off to your friends and family? Well this is the perfect project for you! This project is one of the most beautiful ones I have ever seen. Of course a purse with random buttons all over it will of course be cute, but think if you had many buttons of the same color. If you used buttons of the same color and made a sort of rainbow type of purse it would be the talk of the year! Finding all of the buttons can be hard of course, so I suggest buying them in bundles and looking at garage and yard sales for buttons as well. You will eventually have enough buttons to complete the purse. The one amazing thing about this purse is the time and dedication it takes to make it; collecting all of buttons for a long period of time will make this such a memorable purse. I would suggest passing down to your children and grandchildren, so they can show off what you made! After I saw a photo of a purse like this I knew I had to make one myself! So I want all of you reading this to make one also, it will take a while to complete but once your done it will be one of your most greatest accomplishments. What are you waiting for! Read below for everything you need and how to make a beautiful button purse, remember it takes time but it will be so much fun adding another button to the collection.

Here is what you need: ♥

A plain purse

Tacky Glue (this glue works the best for fabric and tricky things!)

Buttons, buttons, and more buttons! You will need a bunch even if your purse is small, don't give up on collecting them it will be fun:)


Here are the easy and simple directions!♥

First find the buttons you want, put a dot of tacky glue on the purse and hold the button down for about a minute so the glue can dry. Do so on all of the buttons until the purse is completely covered in buttons, you don't have to cover the entire purse, you could do it in a pattern or how ever you want. If you make it I know it will look gorgeous:) Do this tutorial with anything you would like to cover in buttons. For example; wallets, jars, picture frames, jewlry boxes, whatever you would like. I hope you have fun decorating, if your a crafty person like me I know you will enjoy this as much as I do:)

P.S Think how much your purse will be worth with all of those buttons on it! Just think if they were a dollar a piece and you have a thousand buttons! Thats defiently a lot of money have making your purse:)

      This is really cute! I like that the buttons give a nice texture to the purse and it accentuates the colors of the fabric.
