A new take on the button bracelet!

I found these leather bracelets recently and thought how nice it would be to dress them up a little. I came up with these:

I stitched some satin ribbon to the leather then added some ruffled lace and some buttons. I love coming up with new ideas for using what would otherwise be discarded or hidden away in a drawer.

Have a good weekend all you fellow button lovers!
