button bouquet from LillybudsBouquets on Etsy
Got a box or jar full of buttons carefully saved by your mother or grandmother? For 2015 I’m in search of great ways to put those buttons to use. Here is this week’s idea:
If you have a wedding in your families future, consider a button bouquet for the bride. What a priceless keepsake this could be made with buttons from the brides ancestors and maybe even some from the grooms side of the family too. An add-on gift would be any information you have about the ancestors whose buttons you use and any provenance on the buttons themselves. Here are a few more of LillybudsBouquets from her Etsy shop.
It would be a good idea to document where the buttons for your project came from and any relevant stories or information about that person or family. If you are looking for more button crafts, check out my Pinterest board.
