Buttons. Not the “Like” button or Tweet button… but I’m talking real buttons. The buttons you find on your shirt or jacket. I feel that we’re not giving enough love or attention to our buttons. Are you with me? At least a bit curious?
Who else can-not-throw-away any extra buttons that come with an outfit? Well, that would be me.
Now ask me if I have ever used ANY of these buttons. Answer? Nope. I wish I have, but I haven’t. Yet I can’t bring myself to discard of any of those extra buttons. But now I feel that they are mocking me and I decided to do something with them.
Bring on the buttons!
I admit – the first image I have of buttons is this:
1. Replace! Replace boring buttons or even just 1 button on a jacket or shirt with one of your favorite buttons. It will transform your look.
2. Create! Create a new ring with one bold button. Simply go to a craft store, purchase a ring base/finding and glue on your gorgeous button. Instant statement ring.
3. Combine! Take all of those buttons – even the boring ones – and combine them all together into a new necklace. My vision is NOT a necklace of crafty, sad, glued buttons but instead one that is on with the trends. Why not glue them all onto a collar template to make a button necklace that is going to get ooohs and aaahs from your friends!
SooOOOoooo… we have a plan. Time to bring on those buttons. Good luck!
