I've been sorting through my files and going through stacks of old magazines and I came across a really cute idea by C.D. Muckosky in Creating Keepsakes. She took a large chipboard star and covered it with sewn on buttons in different shades of green and framed it. SO DANG cute. We're needing a few new St. Patrick's Day decorations, so I used the same idea. I went through my button stash, pulled out all my green buttons, lightly traced a shamrock shape onto a piece or corrugated cardstock, sewed the buttons on and then attached the cardstock to a painted and sanded block.
Top 'o the mornin' to ya!
