ScrapHappy July 2022

A billion buttons and what to do with them all…? Some match, some don’t. I prefer it when things don’t. I don’t do matching very well and I wasn’t about to waste my time sorting them all out.
I’d seen a friend with a simple multi-coloured wrap-around necklace with little buttons hanging off it; it was very striking and looked easy enough to make. I decided to use only transparent glass beads so the buttons would be more prominent. I’d also planned to make it long enough to wrap round three times but I got the measurements wrong so I get four wraps out of it!

I hope the close-ups make it clear how to get the buttons to hang loose – in case anyone else who’s been hoarding buttons wants to try their hand.

Apologies for the lousy pics, we aren’t getting much natural light this winter. But soon, soon….it will be spring :)

        You probably could, but the postage might well be silly money. I’ve yet to assess my buttons and decide what colour would set them off best.

    I didn’t get a chance to leave a comment earlier. ADD in full swing here.That’s a lovely way to use buttons and have them be the prominent focus. I have many buttons too. I’ve been thinking about what to do with them as well. You do have some great ideas.

      Sorry to hear that, Catherine, but I like the word “recovering”! I haven’t been reading any blog posts myself lately but trying to catch up….
      Take it easy, get lots of rest xx
