*This post is dedicated to my blog friend Patty over at Pip Stitch (http://pipstitch.blogspot.com) because she shares my incredible love of buttons.
I’ve been seeing button art popping up all over the place lately. I dragged my heels on trying it because it looked like it would be a pain in the neck. But it really wasn’t. Here is my pink and purple button art.
I didn’t spend a lot of time laying out each and every button. I laid out some big ones to make sure I had enough. Then it was just a matter of gluing them all down.
This is a 5×7 canvas. I used my Cricut to cut a 5″ egg (because I cannot draw), I traced around the template onto the canvas and then just started gluing buttons! I started with large buttons and then used smaller ones to fill in. I finished off the piece by gluing some grosgrain ribbon around the edge. Because I love grosgrain – especially since I learned the proper way to pronounce it!
I also did one in green and pink. With green grosgrain ribbon to finish it off.
