Buttons Make Everything Funner,



Little Pink Ribbon Pins

October is the month that we as women remind each other that we love, care and honor ourselves.   The sisterhood of women strengthens this month as we stand together to bring awareness to breast cancer and what it means in our lives.  I don’t think there is a life untouched by breast cancer.  This little ribbon is a crafty project that you can make and wear to participate in not only the awareness aspect but also the celebration of the sisterhood of women.  I glued it together with Aleene’s Max Tacky Adhesive.  I used pink buttons of course.  I attached it to a pillow for the Hands-on-Heart pillow drive.


Here are a few other crafty breast cancer awareness projects that you might like.  This button ribbon was created with buttons and glue!

Button Pink Ribbon

This tie dyed pillowcase fits perfectly in the tote bag that was created with the pink ribbon stamp from ClearSnap by Jen Goode.  You can see lots of great things that were made with her stamp on 100 Directions.



Pink buttons can make a difference I think!  What do you think?

Felt and Button Coaster Fun with Aleene’s Adhesives

This project is super easy and fast and creates coaster fun with felt and buttons.

Button Felt Coaster

Cut your felt squares to 5 inches by 5 inches.  You will need two squares per coaster.  I used the high quality Kunin Felt to get a thick classy feel.  Put a layer of Aleene’s Tacky Glue around the edge of one square then line it with your favorite buttons from the BRIGHTS collection by me, Laura Kelly, for Buttons Galore.

Tacky Glue

Spray the other square with a heavy layer of Aleene’s Fabric Fusion and put the two pieces of felt together.

Fabric Fusion

Let it dry completely and it is ready for use.  Create a bunch of these in different colors and you will be all ready for a cocktail party!
