Hello! I have a lot of buttons. ALOT of buttons. Some of my favorites are my Papertrey buttons. I bought them with the intention of using them on cards, but quickly realized that they added alot of bulk to the cards and made them pretty unmailable - unless I wanted to design special thicker envelope boxes and pay much more in postage. So they've sat in my crafting room for a couple years now. I have to admit that they are very pretty to look at on the shelf in their jars.
As pretty as they are, I wanted to find a way to use them and enjoy them everyday. Now I have to start this off with the disclosure that I said I would NEVER get into jewelry making. I am in to WAY to many other crafts that take up space and time. But those buttons just begged to be made into button bracelets like some I've seen on pinterest and etsy. And it WOULD allow me to enjoy them more. But it WOULD also involve getting some jewelry making supplies. Not too many... but you know how that goes. Anyway, I watched you tube videos on jewelry making, picked up some brochures and set to making things with all my buttons.
I have an etsy shop, so I will be putting these up there soon. IF I can part with them!
