Buttons, buttons, buttons....

Buttons, buttons, buttons....

Buttons......I just LOVE them! Different colours, different shapes, different sizes, different textures - and there are so many things you can do with them!

I have always used buttons in my crafting, from creating button jewellery such as bracelets and brooches to using them to embellish my ever popular Peg Memo Magnets, Keepsake New Baby Art and creating Cross Stitch Buttons.

Over the last few weeks I have been experimenting using buttons with resin.  My latest creation is now complete!  A set of resin button coasters.  Each coaster is embedded with a shade of buttons in different shapes and sizes.  My first set consists of yellow, green, blue and purple shades.  I am so pleased with how they are turned out - a success!

I have been browsing through Folksy looking for other sellers that use buttons and have found some fabulous items.  Here are just a few of them!
