I have been chatting with people about the truly brave undertaking of hot-glueing buttons to things, which still seems somewhat of a sacrilege to me. Finally, I got a bucket of buttons for a present which has enabled me to take a walk on the wild side and give that a try. Grin Let me tell you, I have not been struck by lightning since, so the button-gods either haven't noticed or they are ok with this....

the button-clock:

 





Incidentally, this makes for a nice and quick present: Take a canvas, cut out a hole in the middle, cover with fabric and buttons, insert clock into the hole, hotglue everything ( and earn a badge for hot-gluegun-survival while doing it) and

....

you actually come up with a present that doesn't get the "*sneer* oh, you've MADE me something!" remark from non-crafty folk, but actually gets three people fighting over who gets to keep it Grin

I think it's great!! I love that each button is a little different but still within the same color family. It makes it random and cohesive all at the same time Smiley.

Great idea to put it on canvas!

If I had been there to fight for it, it would live here now Grin.  Awesome sweetling.  Desired both by those of a more traditional line of thinking and those of us who prefer a one of a kind piece.  I'm so going to stone you..wait...rock I mean rock!! Grin

To all past swap partners....If something I made you fell apart in some way, it would be helpful to me if you PMed me and told me about it.  Sometimes, I try new things, and if they fail, it helps me to know

Thank you girls! Grin Grin Grin You are putting a smile on my (somewhat tired) face! Actually, I should have added something about the fun I had sorting all those buttons from the bucket after color and material- I felt a bit like the Count when he's counting things Wink
