Years after that shirt has gone out of style, the buttons often remain fashionable. Here's a way to get them out of the button box and into view. Look through your stash for charming old buttons (if you don't have any, start perusing flea markets and garage sales) to turn into kitchen magnets. Just hot-glue a button to a small magnet, and it's ready for the fridge, where it will give new meaning to the phrase "cute as a button."
