Buttons Buttons Buttons

I'm always trying to think of ways to use the buttons I've collected. How about button earrings???? After a bit of investigating and a trip to the hardware store to get the proper glue I made these:










They are by no means original but I'm planning to use them as "freebies" when I ship an Etsy order.

Those are cute. I really like the cards you made for the earrings. Especially the pinked edges.

And as a freebie? I think you need to SELL them.

Cute, cute, and cute!
Oh yeah, I agree with lera, you should sell them. Why not?

Too cute! What a fun idea - now I feel myself veeeeery interested in getting into the whole "vintage button" thing. Must. Resist.

I love making those! They're so fun and cute. I have those same exact white buttons!

They look fabulous! What a terrific little Etsy extra. I love the design of the card they're attached to.

Cute earrings and you're lucky you have at least two of some of those! I seem to have one of some really cool ones. And the paper backing is nice too. I am thinking about doing something like that for craft shows where your name and such are included. I read that people tend to keep something like that more than a biz card. :) Have a good weekend!

Um, I definitely think you should sell them too! So cute & such a great idea. I never would have thought of making buttons into earrings.
