I came across some button brooches in a magazine a while ago but decided to add my own twist to them by adding some charms and beads to the mix. The first button brooch I made was joined together with wire and looked like this.
I was very pleased with how it turned out but decided that the wire was a bit fiddly so looked for an easier way to join the buttons and create a loop for the jump rings. When I came across some narrow ribbon I knew I had found the answer.
Tie a small knot in the ribbon and secure with a dab of glue
Attach one of the small jump rings to the loop of your charm and then attach the small jump ring to one of the large jump rings threaded through your ribbon.
Once you start you may find like me there will be no stopping you
And you will start digging around in your button box for the perfect button for a St Patrick's Day button brooch
or even a Quilt Bee button brooch!
I knew I would find a use for these scissors one day!
So that is Mother's Day and St Patrick's Day sorted only family birthdays left to go.
