When is a button not a button?

When it's been turned into a thumbtack topper!  Look at what Nicole created with some gorgeous buttons and some thumbtacks - too clever don't you think!

Step One - choose your buttons



Step Two - glue thumbtacks to the back



Step Three - use your pretty new button thumbtacks


I covered a canvas with some padding (only because the canvas had a picture on it) then I just chose some pretty ribbons I wanted to display and now I have a pretty ribbon display board.  The thumbtacks go through both the canvas and padding easily.  You can just as easily use a corkboard or similiar!

Thanks to Nicole for a fantastic way to use buttons.

Hope you are enjoying our button projects this week.  Make sure to let us know!

Have a good week.
