I saw the inspiration for this on Martha Stewart's website but didn't like that you couldn't see the front of the buttons. So I made my own version.  Cheesy



Sorry the pic seems a little dark! There are better ones and a tutorial on my blog.

Thanks for looking!

Aww, cute!!

I made one of the ones from her tutorial last year http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=211717.0  You're right, though, it's cool to see the front of the buttons, too!  Maybe I'll make a mix of them this year.

Thanks for the idea!

I loved these so much that I pulled out my boxes of buttons and beads... and ended up making 22 of them!  I'm going to tie one to everyone's Christmas presents when I wrap them.

The whole batch:

Thank you for the inspiration ehinders!

Welcome! That was what I thought about doing with mine as well. Sort of an extra present on your other one!  Grin

Hey swap buddy  Grin

That's super cute, I like seeing the front of the buttons better too. I think I will have to make some as Christmas gifts!

That's why I started making them, to reduce the stash!  Cheesy
