More from my team training yesterday, it was a wonderful day.
These are the 3 cards they made, all showcasing our fabulous buttons.
And a close up of each one.
And the final 3D item they made was a button bracelet, I have been making these for a long time as a friend and store owner Anna has been designing and making button jewellery forever and has shown me lots of tips and tricks! I haven’t made much jewellery for a while and when I decided to focus the training on buttons I knew I just had to make some jewellery with the team.
I was then reminded of the bracelet idea via a post from an American Stampin’ Up! demonstrator Patty Bennett here, she in turn got the idea from Jill Olson, isn’t this so great we all share from one another!
The buttons Patty uses are bigger than the ones we have currently in the UK, but we just used a few more ! These are modelled by the lovely Kimberley.
I have used a clear stretchy thread as I wanted the buttons to be the star of the show, but you could easily use our stretchy silver or gold thread. You could put rhinestones or pearls in the centre of the flower buttons too, that would make it very sparkly!
I’ll be back tomorrow with the mini scrapbook details.
