These first two are made of paper and this was my first time using a die cutter that one of the ladies had. Man that was fun! So easy to do and my 7 yo says they looked really professional! (My photography, on the other hand, is not so professional - oh well.)
These next little guys are buttons and beads on a chenille stick modified from a Martha Stuart idea. Super cute.
These button wreaths are simple and so pretty! The best part of the idea (found here http://craftapalooza.typepad.com/crafted/2009/11/its-a-button-wreath-tutorial-but-you-didnt-really-need-me.html) was to use a buckle for the ribbon. I had one for the wreath I did, on the right. My daughter did the one on the left which I will cherish forever - but I had no buckle for that ribbon. It's a perfect craft for kids. Thanks for bringing the buttons down Mom!
