hot tip - make every day buttons more exciting

When you're searching around for a button to finish off your latest creation, take another look at the every day ones which you may have already cast aside.

On the top they look very traditional and not too inspiring.....

Now, here's the thing....turn them over and they are completely flat and have a slightly sparkly finish.  Its a great way to recycle buttons and know that they're looking good too.

The blue one shows the difference most clearly.  Do go and have a look at the reverse side of some of your buttons like these and tell me what you find.....


  1. Great suggestion and so true :D I have just made a bracelet from a random selection of buttons and couldn't agree ore


  2. Its funny isn't it how when you get crafting you seem to look at things in a different way. Buttons work brilliants in jewellery - especially when the're combined together. They're such an every day item with so much potential.
