push pins

I have this perpetual pile of scraps, which is full of fabric with clever little designs and patterns. I never really knew what to do with these too small, irregular lost souls *until* I met my new best friend: the cover button. It is the perfect little project because each button takes no more than a minute to assemble and the result is so pleasing and satisfying.

You can use covered buttons to make push pins, magnets, hair ties (thanks, Roselee), fancy paper clips, board game pieces. The possibilities seem endless. What do you do with your cover buttons?
