Button Crafts Ideas

| April 22, 2014 | 18 Comments

This week we are looking at yet another lovely craft material: BUTTONS and Button Crafts. Buttons is something that I have always loved, ever since I was a child. I remember my grandmother having this box of buttons, that I could spend HOURS sorting through. It contained these tiniest of buttons with three tiny holes, which I was simply in awe of… well over 30 years later, I still have these wonderful buttons. But have I made anything with them? No! Time to get making some Button Crafts me thinks!!!

    ok so if you don’t have a bucket full of buttons where can you find them for purchase other than just going to local fabric store and buying them by the card for a hefty price
