Cute as a Button

23 Feb

So many things to make with buttons…
Here’s a round-up of ideas!

Button Napkin Holder

buttoncardSimply glue buttons of choice to vintage cards. Choose 5 colors of silk ribbon; gather into a bunch, cut into 8″ pieces, and knot one end of each. Punch 2 holes in sides of vintage button cards. Pull unknotted ribbon ends up through each hole so knot catches under card. Tie loose ends under napkin.

Button Wreath

My New Creative Blog
[always thought this sign was the best]

I’ve been reading many many many different creative blogs over the years. And when I say many… well that’s an understatement. I love the inspiration! I’ve read so many great ideas and have created so many different projects. I’ve also started way too many projects without finishing them. I thought about starting my own blog for awhile now… I’ve always wanted to share my ideas, inspirations, and interests.


Today is my 4-year wedding anniversary, and I can’t think of a better day to begin. So without further ado… here we go! Hope you all enjoy it.
