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!

Button Embellished Coat Rack

Here is a fabulous button craft project from Think Crafts created by my wonderfully crafty friend Amy of Mod Podge Rocks. I think it would be super in a kids room. Don’t you?

You can visit the tutorial to make a button embellished coat rack of your own here. And while you are out surfing on the web stop by Mod Podge Rocks here and say “HELLO” to Amy.

This is an easy way to dress up a plain cotton messenger bag!

I used Fabri-Tac to glue the buttons on but you could definately sew them on.

I like the monochromatic look of the Natural Buttons but you could easily make this in soooo many colors. And because the bag is cotton it could be dyed to match any of our buttons.

What color would you make?

Shamrock Treat Bag

DSC00602-1 

Did your little one just tell you that you need to make party favors for school on St Patricks day? No worries, Laura Kelly has you covered.

Cut a large shamrock out of dark green felt and a smaller shamrock out of light green felt. Laura used pinking shears to give her shamrock a decorative edge.

Sew buttons (or glue them) onto the light green felt and then glue the smaller shamrock onto the larger one.

Attach the finished shamrock to a ribbon or whatever you might have on hand and attach it to the treat bag.

Isn’t this adorable? What is super impressive is that all of the buttons are SEWN on! The stitched “lucky” is just the icing on the cake. Super cute!

Sweeten Up With Buttons This Valentines Day

Make someone you love feel special this Valentines Day!  Reuse some empty and clean jars as funky containers for goodies and gifts.

Using craft paints (I used Glass Gallery and Apple Barrel-both from Plaid), paint some hearts and polka dots onto the glass.

While the paint is drying (Gallery Glass takes a while), wrap some red and pink buttons up in wire to create handles for the jars.  A great place to buy buttons is Buttons Galore. When the paint is dry you can add another layer of paint decor then add red and pink buttons to the jars with Aleene’s Tacky Glue.

Let the jars dry completely before handling them to add the button wire.  Twist the wires around the jar rims in whatever way you like.  I made an extra one to decorate a wine bottle!

THEN, fill the jars up with candy goodies and you are all set to lay out a SWEET Valentine display of love!  Please share other ideas of things to put in the jars.  Sharing is a nice thing to do.
