Cute As A Button Valentines


It seems that when I go shopping with my crafty friends, we go nuts over jars of vintage buttons. Any seamstress loves delicious buttons. 

What a better Valentine card for my sewing and crafty friends than a beautiful jar full of Buttons. 


Directions:
  • Started with printing off the jar templates from SweetlyScrappedArt, HERE
  • Then, glue the jars to coordinating card stock. Cut one piece of tulle to cover the jar. 
  • Using your sewing machine on the zig zag stitch, go around the jar holding the tulle in place.
  • MAKE SURE you leave the top of the jar open so that you can put your buttons in. 
  • Finish by zig zag the top portion to hold buttons inside and tie a decorative ribbon around the top. 


Using a Happy Valentines Day stamp on the back of the jar, stamped sentiment. Finally writing my own personal message to all of my friends. 


Mailed them in handmade envelopes yesterday and I can't wait until they receive them. Hope to make some more for different occasions because they were so much fun and so fast to put together. 

Any questions, please message me.
