Today's tip offers a way for you to make your own version of Webster's Pages Rose & Pearl flatback buttons.
Look @ their versions to the right: >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
They are so lovely I just keep wanting an endless supply of them. So I thought about it long enough to come up with an easy way to get my own, a lot of them & for a lot less than one package of what the Webster's Pages brand would cost.
I first sought out vintage buttons with deep welled centers and unique shapes. Then I took some of the bling/pearls in my stash & used a glue dot to adhere it to the center of the buttons I purchased.
Now I was able to find a bag of 1 dozen vintage buttons at an antique marketplace for $1. So factor in that I already had the pearl centers & adhesive in my stash and to make 1 dozen cost me approximately $1. FOR REAL!
Joann Fabrics carries a large assortment of buttons both clear & colored alike. If you factor in the use of a coupon this would be an inexpensive way to get more for less too.
Take a look at a couple I assembled:
Hope this inspires you to try making your own.
