Iron Craft #29 - Buttons


Just got back from a great vacation and it's time to get crafting again. I have used buttons for many years in numerous craft projects, in fact, I am showing a few from days gone by--one is on the wall in my craft room and the other is on my craft room door.

For this week, I found some pretty buttons in graduated sizes and made a Christmas tree ornament or gift ti-on. I topped the tree with a tiny gold jingle bell. The original idea came from Martha Stewart via Modern Minerals.

The second craft I did was a card. I love to make cards as they are great for someone who wants to down-size, as they are given and gone. For this card, I used card stock and scrap book paper which I accented with some tiny buttons I had on hand. Easy and useful!

Until next week.....

Those trees would be really cute on top of a package.
