She also cut the design linings out of envelopes and with scissors and paste I could make collages or clothes for my paper dolls. I loved the swirls of color and patterns.
I tried keeping a button box as an adult, cutting them off clothing that was too old to give to the Salvation Army. The problem was when I needed a button I never found enough to look the way I wanted things to look. I would go out and buy more buttons, consigning the rejects to the box.
So much for Yankee frugality.
