We are celebrating spring and what better way to do it than with Pinterest. The site makes our hearts swoon— we use it as a creative kick-start, to figure out what’s for dinner, and to get inspired by gorgeous color combinations for our own projects.
Now we’d like to turn the spotlight on YOU & your creativity. Show us your BUTTON-inspired pinboards!! At the end of the contest we will send the Pinterest user with our favorite pin collection a tote bag filled with fabulous & inspiring crafting supplies. If you are the creator of our very favorite button project, you will receive an invitation to be a guest designer for a mutually agreed upon month at Buttons Galore & More and receive $25 worth of products of your own choosing from the Buttons Galore & More site. In addition, your creation will be featured on our website and in our newsletter — reaching thousands of crafters around the world who will turn your idea for a fabulous project into reality.
