I don't know about you but I love buttons.
I have 2 tins and 3 jars full of buttons.
There is something about running your hands through
a tin full of buttons.

The only problem is I can't buy anymore buttons until
I use some of the buttons I already have.

This is where this book can come into it's own.

Button Tree  Button Tree

With Christmas around the corner this is an ideal time to buy this book.
It's packed full of ideas to either decorate you own home
or to add touches to presents and gifts.

Christmas Ornaments Love Framed Set

I love the fact that each design you learn how to make
can be altered to make it more personal or to match
a different decor.

Kissing Ball  Button Necklace

The use of ribbons and buttons is amazing.
The kissing ball is just so beautiful.
You could use essential oils and make it smell beautiful as well.
The book is full of easy to follow instructions
with full details of all the materials you'll need.

Hair Accessories Elephant Thanks Card

These pictures don't show all the projects.
There are just so many to make in this book:

There is something to make all year round.
To match different decors and types of gift.
I think I'll soon be using quite a lot of my stash
of buttons & ribbons.

I think I'm going to start with some cute
hair accessories for my niece.

What would you like to make
& who would you like to make it for?
