I love buttons. Especially old unique colorful ones. What would the world be if all buttons were just small and round and white?!
I would call that a pretty blah world.
The fact that buttons have always come in all sorts of shapes, sizes, and colors adds an extra zest to life. :) I always like thinking up new ways to use these little jewels and recently I've discovered a way that others enjoy too. I have a question for you....what do you do with old button-up shirt cuffs? Those shirts from your grandmother and great-uncle that went out of style waaaaay before you were born?....well this is what I've been doing with them lately.
Button Bracelets. :)
Just an old shirt cuff with some buttons to add some extra pi-zazz. :D I've made several and each one is cuter than the next. This particular one (which I have decided to call Her Majesty's Adoration) I gave to Rachel Leigh. It captures her personality very well I think. Especially when she's wearing it. :)
Dear Rachel was kind enough to let me do an impromptu photo-shoot of her modeling my creation. :D
The little heart button totally makes it her. :)
Cause she's such a lovin' kinda gal ;)
Isn't she gorgemous?! :D
Hopefully I can have my bracelets on Etsy or something soon so lots more people can be sporting them. :) And in the meantime I have to think of a clever title for my bracelet business...got any ideas?? send 'em my way! ;D
