What you can do with Buttons and Bits!


Some of my favorite things (of course yours too) are BUTTONS.  As much as I love sorting through a variety of buttons and choosing my favorites I always come back to the small two holed mother of pearl or shell buttons for my art.  I love the milky white color and the small etched designs.  Or just plain round creamy colored buttons.  These buttons are fabulous for embellishing little projects such as this row house garland you see here.  I used pieces of vintage trim and my beloved little white buttons.  A sweet lilac seam binding ties them all together.  Images courtesy of Paper Whimsy. Enjoy!

I didn't realize this was a garland, I thought they were tags. Nice! Great way to use up bits!

I couldn't agree with you more about mother of pearl buttons! Those are my very favorites and I can say that I have two very large glass containers full of them. And STILL I buy more!!! I just think that no matter what project you are working on, they just add the right touch!
