Did someone say BUTTONS~~~



So when I get my buttons I always look at them and think ....... Oh I like that one ..... I think I will keep that one in the bag. Well this month's "assignment" was to use buttons so I took out my floral wire and started using some of the buttons I love. Now I have them out and I can see them all the time. I am sure I do not need to list the colors because you all know them well :) The bottle is an antique milk bottle wrapped with a bit of kraft cardstock and then a bit of plum pudding ribbon and twine ........ a New Leaf button and we are all done.

WOW Sue Ann that is simply too clever! I also want to save my "faves" but I never thought to display them as you did!

Im trying to figure out how you get them to stay on top of the wire like that? Does it involve pliers or wire cutters? Or am I way off base, LOL?!?!

Thank you for sharing this great project. Once I figure out what floral wire is and how you make the button stay, Im gonna give this a try!
