Frosted Designs - On the 10th Day of Christmas
10 buttons!
...oh my! I have to admit I am not a major button person, and the thought of working 10 buttons on one project made me cringe...sweat..almost cry! But I pulled out a mini album that I have struggling with and found 10 ways to add buttons to it. I am kinda pleased with how it turned out too, I think the buttons made a nice addition to it....
maybe I should rethink the whole button issue I have....hmmm?
5 buttons on the end page by the lace
2 shaped buttons - the flower pot and the bird house ( removed the shank from the bird house button )
3 buttons on the butterfly
Helmars Liquid Scrap Dots ( to even out the birdhouse because of the little bit of plastic left behind when I removed the shank )
Hemar - tape ( for ribbon )
Prima - flower...( when adding buttons, add a flower too, lol...ok, in reality it was to cover up bad stitching )
Really Reasonable Ribbon ( to help hide a sentiment that was crooked)

10 buttons are quite a few, but you DID manage to work them in perfectly. Your pages are beautiful.

I have boxes of buttons and never seem to use them either but I love what you have done with yours. Love the plant pot and the bird house, they are really cute and in my mind you can never go wrong with a butterfly..... Hugs, Anne x
