Button Rings

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!

What a cute ring! I can't wait to get to the flea markets to get some new buttons...my current stash is sad.
I love the pic's of the kids below. I would have never thought of an outdoor hot cocoa party:)
Enjoy your week!

How beautiful! There really are some amazing buttons out there. They are little pieces of art themselves. Love how you made the ring out of it. I never would have thought of something so creative.
Cheers,

That's a great idea, Michelle! I've seen some really cool buttons that were too big for dolls and contemplated buying them but didnt know what to do with them...now I know:)

By the way, call me clueless but you are moving again?Maybe I should go back and read what I missed!
