Button Jar anyone .....

As kids, my sis and I used to spend a lot of time at my Grandma's house (she lived at no. 4, us at no.44). One of the things that fascinated us and held our attention for hours was the button tin. This was a hand-by down through the generations and we've since discovered that the railway buttons most likely came from an ancestor who was a Station Master in the 1840s. The buttons are now a prized possession of my sister, buttons to her are what ribbon is to me. She has jars and jars of buttons and this gave the idea for her birthday card.

I used the Button Button set and a mix of circle punches to make her another jar of buttons! The jar was cut from velum using the fab cannery framelit dies from the AW catalogue. The pin cushion was cut down from the jar lid die. The velum is stuck down under the buttons at the bottom and the pin cushion at the top so I could hide th adhesive. The sentiment uses the Itty Bitty Banners set that I earned for FREE during Sale-a-Bration earlier this year and cut with the matching framelits

A sprinkling of buttons finishes the inside.

 In addition to buttons, my sis loves hares. I had a bracelet made for her with hare charms so needed a gift box. I made this with the petal cone die.

The bow was made from the now retired Attic Boutique papers which I had kept especially to make this.

If you would like any more information about or to order the products I have used, please get in contact.
