Buttons!




Yay I've managed to combine this weeks SBS Challenge design team piece, Papertake Weekly challenge with something that I've been needing to make for a while... i've made a button storage box as my piddly tray they were in was starting to overflow so it wouldn't close... This started out life as a tub of jelly beans.. I then covered it with white tissue paper and PVA glue... then i stamped another sheet of tissue with a red ink pad and then covered that with PVA onto the pot as well... after many hours drying I could add the dotty ribbon, then the red felt flowers and finally some dome letter stickers to spell out the word 'buttons'... so there we are practical, useful and fun to make... oh and very messy lol!
So come join in this week's SBS challenge 'something useful'!
