A simple tutorial to make these adorable shirt accessories!
Oh, holy cuteness.

This is quite possibly my favourite make ever. I know I say that a lot, but seriously this time. These little clippy-do-dahs are just so adorable that I'm pretty sure a Disney Princess would have them in her jewellery box.

    Step 1

    All you'll need is your trusty jewellery pliers, two novelty buttons, two small metal loops, a length of chain and a pair of clip on earring clasps. I bought my chain from the market. It was on a spool and the lady cut me half a metre and I was left with a lot! They have similar things in bead shops or crafty nooks. The same for the earring clasps.

    With a dab of glue from your hot glue gun, stick your buttons onto the flat side of the clasps. It's a good idea to have the clasps open for this so you don't accidentally glue the hinge together. Guilty. Also, make sure that the clasps open on opposite sides so the mirror each other, essential for the whole clipping extravaganza that will ultimately come soon.
