Homemade Buttons

By now you know I have an almost unnatural love of buttons.  On the top of my list of things to try, was making my own fabric-covered buttons.  A few weeks ago, I finally bought a button kit and discovered it was beyond simple to make my own buttons.  It's simply a matter of slipping in some fabric and snapping.  I designed my own fabric for the project, but you could certainly use store-bought fabric as well.  It's a great project to use up scraps or for saving a piece of very special fabric. 

I'm warning you though, it's addictive.  So many projects, so little time!  I could embellish anything with them.  But there are almost too many choices.  I'm overwhelmed.  So I'm asking for your help.  How would you use homemade buttons?
