Tip: Use colorful Spring buttons in mini Easter baskets to accent your Easter decor instead of jelly beans. Just make sure not to leave the buttons where young children can reach them. Have a Happy Easter!

Button Loads of Fun! Spring Gift Basket

With spring in the air and Easter approaching it’s that time of year to make baskets and give sweet little gifts.What crafter would not want a basket filled with Buttons Galore & More buttons!  Forget the candy, give her buttons. I made this basket from cardstock, and found a pattern online. You can find patterns from the simple pattern you hand cut by hand, to the elaborate patternthat you cut with your machine.

Layering Buttons

To layer the buttons take 3 buttons from the Button Bonanza Pastel Pack

Tie twine into the smallest button, then hot glue buttons on top of one another.

After you layer buttons adhere to basket using hot glue again.

Then carefully adhere buttons randomly along bottom edge for added flair.

Pour rest of Pastel Button Bonanza into basket and make someone’s day bright and happy!

I hope you have fun with this project- Pinky- Buttons Galore & More Design Team
