There is no end to the inspiration a vintage button gives one.... These tiny little objects have so often been the very thing that have triggered off a hundred craft ideas I have made throughout the years of working with Accessories of Old.
Here is another five minute project easy to do and makes a Christmas decoration pop out and say "look at me"
I took some old cards I had of buttons where the stitching had come off and so the buttons had fallen off the cards .
What better way to keep these little beauties safe and display them bringing out their full potential then to display them in a ball.
What I did was take a photograph of all the buttons as the backdrop.
I found a ball that opens and divides in half allowing you to place a image inside ( available at all craft stores)
I cut my photograph to size and then I glued the buttons on top of the picture to hold them in place and make them pop just that little bit more.
Nice effect and simple to do. I love the photographic image and the using the actual item gives it that interesting 3D effect.
