I am trying to get a lot of crafting out of my system so that when the move finally happens(soon we are hoping!) I will be able to just concentrate on unpacking and such. So I have seen some of these rings in blogland and had to try one myself It is made from one flat button and one with a shank that I cut off and then superglued them together. Then I superglued them to the ring thing (don't know what the thing you build it on is called but I found them on etsy). It helps if you have all my Grandma's old buttons at your disposal like I do here at my mom's house too. I think I may have to make some more!
