I thought you might like to see the pictures..... I was inspired by the Craft Stamper Magazine Dec 10 edition, which showed how to make bespoke buttons and then a decorated button tin.
The buttons were homemade, which I then attached the vintage style cotton holder. The tape measure stamp is one from the Fashion House collection by scrapbook sisters. I also used buttons in the shape of needles, sewing machine and scissors which I found at Dunelm Mill.
I bought some white Fimo clay and set the kids off to make the buttons, which they loved and has now become a present, which you can see in the picture above and small box is full of homemade buttons.
I loved decorating the boxes, I hope you enjoyed seeing them.
