I received the lastest issue of Marie Claire Idees last week and I can NOT stop looking throught it.
I completely adore these stockings:
And these ornaments:
And I want the mittens this snowman is wearing!
I've decided that I absolutely HAVE TO come up with ways to use my embarassingly HUGE button collection. Last night I spent quite a while surfing the Internet for ideas. I made my first button bracelet using this great tutorial by Creative Kismet.
Her tutorial is GREAT with extremely clear instructions. Trust her though when she says to apply glue to the tips of the embroidery floss, I didn't, and it probably took me twice as long to make the bracelet.
I just might take this bracelet apart and make it again. I'm not happy with a couple of the button placements, but I will certainly be making more of these.
