I paint on mother-of-pearl buttons and painted this Santa button as a gift for a special friend and made it into an ornament for her...
And here is how I did it.... First I put a 2 1/2" card stock circle on a 6" silk circle with a touch of glue to hold it in place. Then I gathered it "yoyo" style..
Then I added some small lace around the Santa and a lace medallion to the silk. I put it together adding a loop in the back and some bells to the bottom.
This would be fun with any Christmas button and easy enough for youngsters to do..
And here is a close up of the Santa... which is about 1 1/2". Merry Christmas everyone!
Button Floozies is devoted to buttons and the women who love them. For many of us, button love began when played with our mothers' and grandmothers' button tins as children and has grown through the years. The Button Floozies blog is written by many contributors; they are listed below under the heading "Button Floozies". Whether you collect, or just admire, all things tiny and fabulous, join us as we show our treasures, and the things of beauty we create with buttons! -- Laurie firstname.lastname@example.org
