I use a lot of buttons for my projects,but here buttons can be a little expensive and its hard to find them in bright colors.So I decided to make my own! :)
Special thanks to Dessah for the awesome button box and buttons! :)
You will need:
-buttons of all shapes and sizes
-something to shape the buttons-I used a plastic spool from an embroidery floss
Roll out a piece of clay and cut a circle from it with the spool.
You will need to shape the edges a bit to get rid of the cutting.
Get your favorite shaped button and press it in to the clay.
You will see the little dots in the middle from the holes.
With help of a needle or a crochet hook make the button holes.
If you use a button with a pretty pattern you can make your buttons even more realistic.Now just bake them according to the instructions on the clay.
