Pink Saturday AND Blogtoberfest day 4

Well it’s over at How Sweet the Sound, and it’s day 4 of over at Big Cat’s Emporium. So today I’m going to blog about pink buttons and what I do with ’em. Because I collect vintage buttons, I buy jars and boxes full and end up with lots of buttons that are good for crafting, but not so good for collecting. So I’ve been trying out ways of using them as focal points in projects. I hardly ever use glue – mostly I sew or wire them, so that they can be reused at a later time.

These are vintage dyed shell buttons given a new lease of life on these pretty cherry blossom embellishments.

 

I started off making charm bracelets with beads and vintage buttons.

 

Button necklaces. These plain little buttons look really nice all strung together, and can look very elegant as a piece of jewellery…

  

Hair comb, brooches and barrettes made with ribbons and vintage buttons….

 

And vintage button flowers……..

Look forward to catching up with you in the week ahead!
