Yo Yo and Button Project Ideas

Yo Yos and buttons seem to be made for one another. I recently made a few projects with yo yos using the Clover Yo Yo makers and our beautiful buttons.

I do have a little confession to make… I had never made a yo yo before. True story. But the yo yo maker was soooo easy and if I had a yo yo that didn’t look “just right” adding a button to it made it look fine. My good yo yos looked even better with a button.

I covered the headband above with fabric and then covered the seam with some grosgrain ribbon. Finally I attached a yo yo made with coordinating fabric and topped it off with a button. Super cute hair accessory in about 20 minutes. Seriously.

I love this mini tote with a doily, yo yo and button. Wouldn’t it make a great gift bag?

Yo Yos and Buttons go together like peanut butter and jelly. Don’t you think?

Simple but Sweet Coffee Plaque

This a “Simple but Sweet Coffee Plaque” from Christine at Christine and Co.  I love her tag line “Because I’m rarely alone”.  I’ll bet you can relate to that? I know, I can!

I like the way she used our buttons to anchor the corners of her project. Please go over and visit her tutorial here. You won’t believe how simple it really is!
