Playing with buttons...

After putting away most of my Easter decorations, the house looked so bare.

 A recent post by Magpie Ethel, reminded me of how much fun I've had creating button flower bouquets in the past.

A piece of Styrofoam wedged inside my teacup holds the wire stems in place.  

 A super easy crafting project.  You can find my tutorial on this blog post from 2011. 

I have a busy week ahead at my big girl job.  I'm already missing last week's spring break schedule.
XOXO

Really sweet button flowers, Kim! And a perfect way to use a chipped teacup I've been wondering what to do with.

They are a fun project. I keep that bouquet out that I made for the magazine post. Nothing better than putting a button on show...
