Hi again,

Here to share another quick crafty tip with you.

Todays focus is ….Buttons! 🙂

Buttons and crafting is a great match. You can achieve A lot with buttons – a whole variety of different makes:

  • Arrange them into shapes e.g. flowers or circles , as a focal image.
  • Arrange them into Letters for card fronts, or into a deep picture frame, as a gift.
  • Arrange them into numbers.
  • Trace a shape onto a card or cushion etc. and fill with buttons and add a sentiment to the edge, or fill around the shape and add a message inside the shape.
  • Use them on scrapbook page layouts.
  • They can be used as stoppers for easel cards.
  • Incorporate buttons into Jewellery making.
