I want to show you something that Christine has posted to her blog, The Alchymyst's Study. She posts about many creative things and you may enjoy seeing what she has done. Here are three things she has done using buttons.
Aren't these mini button flower bouquets adorable? They are arranged in thimbles and the coin gives you and idea of their size.
A larger version of the button flower bouquets. Christine got the graphics from The Graphics Fairy. This is another blog with a lot of creative ideas which you may also enjoy.
I just included this picture from Christine's blog because it is cute, a good recycled use of an old sweater, and best of all it uses buttons.
